Scooter, the Social Butterfly and Fashion Diva of Alabama, has a new self-imposed job duty. It seems that Mommy has declared it “off limits” for an adorable six year old redhead to go to any home where Mommy has not previously met the parental units.
Just down the street from their home, is a home on a large corner lot that has an equally large play gym in the yard which also happens to be right near the school bus stop. This play gym is so eye-catching to the children, that they refer to that house as The Park and all the kids stop at The Park on their way home from school each afternoon.
Obviously, Scooter felt left out as she was not allowed to ever go to The Park with the rest of the kids until this week when she emerged from the school bus and noticed that one of the parental units at The Park was standing outside. Somehow Scooter convinced the parental unit to walk home with her and officially meet Mommy thereby nullifying the current banishment from The Park in the future. I can just picture the conversation…
But the funniest part is that Scooter has been randomly collecting parental units from all over the neighborhood and bringing them home to meet Mommy. Mommy says that she has been caught still in her pajamas, wearing rubber gloves and smelling of bleach cleaners and once she was caught with a glass of wine in her hand… I’m certain the neighborhood moms and dads have enjoyed their introductions to Scooter’s Mommy. I know Mommy has!
