Spreading Cheer

Hi everyone. I know it’s been a while since I’ve written anything here, but that’s not because nothing has been happening. I know I often make it seem like the parents don’t know anything (and they don’t), but that isn’t to say we don’t have fun together. I don’t want to give that impression, so today I’d like tell you about how I’m making a positive impact in their lives.

The parents are really pretty glum folks most of the time. I worry that they don’t take time to really enjoy things. For example, the other day mommy’s big food heating box started glowing orange and emitting white smoke, and she didn’t even stay to watch. I wanted to stay and see the pretty colors, but apparently she thought that it was more important to go have a conversation with daddy.

To prevent their complete descent into tedium, I have taken it upon myself to inject fun into situations when I can. For example, if mommy puts the hypnotizer into my mouth, I look up at her, and then pop it back out. She retrieves it and puts it back in. It’s a really simple game (the parents can’t handle complex games yet), but we can play it for a long time. I’m not sure why it amuses her so much, but who can argue with results?

Another fun game to play with the parents is “Find the Hypnotizer”. I have mommy or daddy leave the room and I hide the hypnotizer somewhere in the crib. Then after it is well hidden (sometimes this takes a while) I call them back and they have to try and find it in the dark. They’re actually really bad at this game, but I guess that’s to be expected. As long as they want to keep trying, though, I’ll keep playing. It keeps our bond strong.

Anyhow, that’s all I’ve got time for today. I’ve got a very busy schedule these days, but I promise I’ll be back with more tales about how I’m enriching the parents’ lives soon.

  1. Miranda, you’ll be horrified to learn that some parents cheat at “Find the Hypnotizer” by seeding the crib with four to ten of them.

    I know. Some people have no standards.
