Allergies and Runaways

Barrett found a hair in his cereal the other morning. He was grossed out  and blaming me so I said, “I give you every ounce of my patience, my love, my time and the actual hair from my head and all its nutrients!” No beat was skipped when Merr said “I’m allergic to nutrients!”

Barrett went to a neighbors house to play and Merrick didn’t notice. When he emerged from the TV room searching for his older brother I told him that Scott and I told Barrett we liked the other kids more and he was hurt so he took some money and went to find a new family. Merrick kept asking if we were serious and where did Barrett actually go. 

“To find a new family.”

“Are you serious?”


Merrick left and came into the living room with a backpack and all his bedding. He asked for some money so I asked him where he planned to go, “To find Barrett!” 

Sweet boy. Dad and I were kidding but thanks for showing your loyalty you twit! Make your own food now!

I helped him unpack his bag. It contained his piggy bank, Lego alarm clock and a robe.
