The Little Prince Commands Thee

The Little Prince doesn’t really care that Hu-Dad has some work to wrap-up, so Typhoon commands attention in his own special way.

Is the look working?

Is the look working?

After a weekend of S-RV adventure, Hu-Dad was trying to tackle a few tasks in his study Sunday night. Typhoon, however, thought it was time to go to bed and demanded that sleeping schedules be adhered to. When Hu-Dad suggested that he just needed a for more minutes and maybe Typhoon just needed a little patience, that did not go over well. The Little Prince took matters into his own paw – quite literally, into his own paw.

Hu-Dad, we need to have a little talk.

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: Have patience, Ty, haven’t you heard the old saying, “The hurrier I go, the behinder I get!”? Maybe you’ll get to sleep in in the morning to make up for being kept up “so late”.

    Oooh. Looks like the “No Touching” rule is a one way street. LOL.

      Chuckling. Every rule is one way with Typhoon.

    We also get the ‘poke,’ usually accompanied by the woo, for whatever her majesty desires. They do try to keep us on track. Typhoon looks like he has it mastered.
