Frances: Hi Crush – how are you?
Crush: "I'm ok – I want to play with mom more. I want to be out of this tank more. Why did those fish have to be here too? (I'm sorry Crush – let me get to your questions one at a time. I will speak with mom about some Crush time every day. Some days may be just 5 minutes – but we will talk later on how this can work for both of you. You know mom wants you to be happy, right?) Well, I suppose so – but she has a funny way of showing it with those darn fish in here with me – why did she bring them in? (She thought you might want some company – seeing that you were all alone in the tank.) They like to play hide and seek with each other – I certainly can't hide in this tank. (I'm sorry Crush – but they're kind of nice to watch aren't they?) Yeah – I suppose it's better than nothing. But I want more of mom's time. Just her and me, you know? (Yes, honey, I know – we will talk later about that. Is that why you bounce off the side of the tank?) Yes, it gets her attention. I can't speak to her like this, so that's what I do when she's ignoring me. (Honey, mom can be very busy working – so again we will talk later today about Crush time.) Ok, thank you. Please tell her I appreciate her taking me in and everything she does for me. I especially enjoy the food – she gives me good stuff to eat – really good stuff. I'm a lucky guy, you know? (Yes, honey I'm sure mom will be happy to hear that.) Why do you call her mom? (What would you like to call her?) Beautiful – she's just so beautiful."
Heidi (after the reading):
"Good morning, Frances, what a difference in my little CrushCrush! He was so mellow all night as we hung out. Then this morning, he was all for coming out and getting his loves before breakfast. I really can feel and see a difference. (He didn't eat his friends though). Thank you so much! You truly have a gift, Frances."
