Katherine just returned from a weekend at her Papa’s campground.
Seems she had a great time and spent most of it in the pool.
“Did you wear your life-jacket Katherine?”
“Yes, but I took it off and swam to Mommy a few times!”
“Hurray! Was Zabby there?”
“Yes, she didn’t need a life-preserver though. Imaginary friends can just walk in pools. Their legs stretch out when the water gets deeper.”
“What happens when she leaves the pool?”
“Her legs snap all the way back.”
“Did Alodda go swimming?”
“I don’t know, she stayed with you.”
“So, that is why my bed felt crowded last weekend?”
Soon after that discussion, Kat asked me to take her to the bathroom.
“I’m still afraid of spiders!’, she said.
This arachnophobia is trying my patience.
“Katherine, take Zabby Eight with you. I heard that she can scare spiders away. She’s very good at it too.”
“Grandma…she is NOT a professional!”
Yikes! I was out smarted again…change the subject…
“So,where has Arthur Eight been?”
“He’s STILL at school.”
“I hope he’s studying to become a professional Spider Tamer.”
