I know Mom finds folding laundry very boring. So it got me to thinking. Maybe I could make it more interesting for her by having her throw me my ball at the same time. I kept on putting it down next to her and she didn't even look at it. So I put it in the basket. That worked. She picked up the ball and threw it. Yes! I thought it would make her smile. Nope. Opposite. She told me I cant put my dirty saliva filled ball on her clean clothes. Gosh! I was just trying to help.
