About China...and That Thing...

You know, sometimes I decide to spend some bwotherwy time with That Thing and awwow him to be in contact with me. And wecentwy duwing these ware bwotherwy times, I've been twying to expwain about the China thing to him.

But as you can see fwom this cwuewess wook he has here, his tiny bwain has a bit of difficulties in gwasping this China concept.
I mean, I've got to do this because I don't want to have to take care of a baby who cwies non stop when mine Mummy goes off and he weawises he's going to have many many sweeps awone on the fuwwy bwanket without mine Mummy.

Mine Mummy is fwying off on the 18th to this pwace in China called Yunnan which gotted her so excited because she's never been there before. But she says she might not have much time to go awound because they've got a vewy busy schedule. Well, Mummy, you better not wook awound too much and get yourself back here once your performances are done!
She'll be back on the 23rd and a week water, she'll be fwying off again, this time to Xiamen, Chaozhou and Guangzhou awea. She'll be done with this set of performances in 6 days but guess what? She's going to stay until 14th of September because she's going to wook for her teacher in Hong Kong!
How can her teacher be more important than ME??????
How can she decide to stay for 10 more days just because she wants to see him??????

I weawwy don't know how to expwain all this to That Thing! Wike yesterday, this was what happened duwing our conversation.

Me: Hey, I've got something I want to expwain to you.

That Thing: Thing? What thing? Can I play with it?

Me: You know Mummy says she's going to China?

That Thing: China? China China China...WOW! Look at this piece of string! Come let's play with this string! Come play with me!

As you can see, his attention span doesn't wast more than 2 sentences.
Someone pwease help me talk to That Thing!

how exciting for your mom! China will be an amazing trip!

Your mom must be very excited, although I know she'll miss you both very much! As for explaining to Beethoven, hmm ... if he has a string to play with, maybe he won't notice she's gone ... ?

It sounds like your Mummy is going to have two very exciting trips to China. I know you will miss her very much and she will miss you. You have some time yet to try to explain to That Thing. Maybe you will get through to him eventually.

Well, you have already been through this once before, so you know what is in store. Poor baby Beethoven is a little bit clueless.

Are you sure you're thinking of Beethoven and not worrying about you being alone for so many sleeps? It's okay to admit it, if you are.

Mom thinks the trip to China will be fun!!! Visiting her teacher will be fun too!!!
This will not be fun for you as you are stuck with Beethoven! I hope you can have some good help when your Mom is gone :)

Boy, we are sorry to hear that your human will be leaving you twice. We hope that she has fun and safe trips to China, and that you and Beethoven are well looked after while she's gone.

Boy, I hope your Mummy takes lots of photos this time and puts them on your blog. We enjoyed her photos so much the last time she went to China. You could help sort through to find the ones you think we would love to see.
It sounds as if you are going to have a difficult time with Beethoven while your mummy is away.

Mr. Hendrix said...

oh dear. poor Thing, he doesn't know what is coming. i'm sorry your mommy is going away for so long. perhaps you can tell Beethoven how much he'll be spoiled by your sitter while your mommy is gone. Maybe that will help.
we hope she has a wonderful time.

Thank you so much for the healing purrs and thoughts while I've been sick. I'm sure that is the reason I'm getting better faster. I am very lucky to have such great friends.
