It’s possible that this fact about me has escaped your notice. I love manatees.
I have given Maisy Jo my stuffed manatee and it resides in her little pink basket. Owen has become increasingly interested in the animal kingdom and loves playing with the manatee. I love manatees too.
Then one day, Owen says, “Mommy is a man-a-tee!”
Uh, hold up. I said I love manatees, but I do not want to look like a manatee! In fact, wasn’t there a huge lawsuit awhile back because Target called plus size gray dresses “manatee gray?”
My only consolation? That when Nick came home Owen called him a manatee too.
