Snippet from Lucy’s journal…

Ok, here we go again!  Me and my dad are trying very hard to talk my mom out of bringing those stupid dummies up from the basement this summer and putting them in the backyard.  "Oh, but they are a part of our family … " my mom whined. (Oops, I didn’t mean to say that … it just slipped out!)

My dad and I looked at each other.  It’s like he was reading my mind ‘cause he said. ‘Well, maybe this year Lucy and I would like to have a little more input on this dummy thing then we’ve had in the past.  What do you say to that?"

My mom said N-O-T-H-I-N-G!!  Not a word.  She just looked at us.  After a few minutes of the LOOK (seemed like hours to me) my dad said, ‘Well, Lucy, I think we just got our answer."

Me and my dad quietly went to the basement.

Till next time!
