Froot Bat? Friday
She's not "the lady", Spyro. She's the Mom.
Spyro: But I thought that she was your Mom.
She is, but she is your Mom, too. I am willing to share.
Spyro: Thanks, bro'.
I am not sure I am ready for that yet.
Karen Jo: You will be soon, Herman. Herman really is willing to share me with Spyro. When Spyro jumped up on the bed Wednesday night, I thought there would be trouble, but there wasn't. Herman moved down near my feet to give Spyro room to crawl all over me and that's exactly what he did. He just wouldn't settle down and kept waking me and Herman up. Herman finally got up in disgust and went to sleep in the living room.
Spyro: I was just excited to be in a new home with a new family. I let everyone sleep last night.
Karen Jo: That you did. You slept on my pillow, leaning against my forehead and Herman slept next to my chest. The two of you were less than an inch apart.
Spyro: Mom took away that round thing with the ball that Herman wouldn't let me play with and replaced it with this:
Wait a minute! You gave Spyro my birthday present?!?
Karen Jo: Don't worry, Herman. Your birthday isn't until June. I will order you something else. You won't get left out. Now I have some questions. What happened here?
Karen Jo: It's OK, Spyro. You still have the purple one to play with. Who tore open this new bag of Temptations?
Karen Jo: Spyro, I quite believe that you saw Herman eating some of the Temptations once the package had been torn open, but he has been living here for a long time and he has never done anything like this. It was you, wasn't it?
Spyro: Yeah, I guess so. But they are so good and they were just sitting there in plain sight and easy to get to and you weren't here to ask for some.
Karen Jo: It's all right. I put them away in a drawer now, so you can't do it again. What amazes me is that over half the bag was still in the bag.
We weren't hungry enough to eat the whole bag.
