Growing up as an only child in Small Town, Canada I came up with my fair share of alter-egos – some of which I still think of as fairly cool, like "Green Girl" who was a superhero of some kind. I had my "Eddie" phase and "Meeks" phase and I'm not sure how much any of those affected my parents, but I do know that "Mornings Meals" was a moniker I lived by that required a lot of explaining to guests in our home (and at least one babysitter).
With that said, meet Sandy and Boogee (the "g" is a soft g as in "gee whiz"). Sandy and Boogee have been around most of the summer and failure to acknowledge the respective parties as such has been met with correction. My boys have a few other alter-egos also (they get it from their mother), but Sandy and Boogee are far and away the most popular.
Seth is Boogee. He lives in the CN Tower and has a baby named Lassie that cries a lot. He also has a cat named Woolie and I am allowed to visit on Sundays at which time he will make me breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Nate is Sandy. He lives in a Boogle and has a baby named Mommy. Mommy is an easy baby and doesn't cry. She will be all grown up by Christmas which is a relief since having another Mommy around would be a big help. Sandy also has a cat named Gloomby and I am welcome anytime, but I shouldn't expect meals.
This is the CN Tower that Boogee lives in with an adjoining Boogle for Sandy:
I think it's nice that they want to live side-by-side – even though there will always be disagreements about one thing or another. You can't tell in this picture, but Seth is getting a bit annoyed with the "adjustments" Nate is making to the CN tower part:
But when the finger comes out, look out!
|"This is your last warning, Nate! NAAAAATE!|
You can keep doing that I guess, but then you will have to go to your room.
OK. Time to go to your room Nate!"*
*It's always weird to hear my own words (more or less) echoed back at me. Boogee is going to make a fine Mommy someday (even if his baby does cry all the time).
