D is for dismissed

Chip is finally get a taste of what it's like to be number two in Mary Clare's world.

Yesterday Mary Clare and Nana had their usual Monday date, and Papa, the old softie, left work early so he could play with Mary Clare before she had to go home. The only problem was that she didn't want to go home. Which she made quite clear when Nana tried to wrangle her into her coat.

N: Come on, Mary Clare, we have to go home.
M: No. Papa!
N: Don't you want to go see daddy?
M: No! Papa!
N: Don't you want to see mommy?
M: No! Papa!
N: What about Buddy?
M: No! Papa! Papa!

Needless to say, my mom and Mary Clare were a little late meeting Chip. I am actually surprised they got her in the car. Money probably exchanged hands.

Chip thought the whole story was funny, but I can tell he's not used to playing second fiddle. The fall from grace can be long and hard, buddy. Welcome to my world.

  1. We go through the same thing everytime we leave Grandma and Papa's. We were there over the weekend, and last night Ryan woke up crying/whining "where's grandmaaaaa, I want grandmaaaaa" - oh, for a good hour. What am I? Chopped liver. I just popped you out kid, that's all.
