By now everyone who follows my blog knows that Mom and I have a “thing” about napping. Here’s how it works……she gets on the recliner, puts the foot thing up, puts a throw on her legs, settles down and I hop up and lie down on her legs………and sleep…………or wait for her to brush me………..or watch TV. It’s a great arrangement. If she gets up to do something like answer the phone or put something on the stove or WHATEVER, I get a little “distressed”…..yeah I know, that’s very selfish of me isn’t it BUT I love my Mom’s lap. A lot.
So, if she DOES get up I stand on the arm of the recliner and wait for her to come back……I do my fair share of calling and trying to cajole her into returning……”MAMAMAMA” usually works. So does “THE LOOK” which I’m doing in this picture as you can plainly see. I call it my “pitiful” look and it works pretty darn well most of the time.
We’re pretty well coordinated with the recliner routine. Eventually she comes back to sit down – I stand with all four legs up on the arm of the chair while she puts the throw back on her lap and legs then pop back down and settle in. Heavy sigh. Big stretch. Heavy sigh again then…zzzzzzzzz….
Today was a major nap day too because we had snow all day long! Tomorrow I’ll share some pictures Mom took. In fact she actually got UP from the recliner to take those pictures…..you know where I was right? Yep – standing on the arm of the chair screaming “MAMAMAMAMA” !!!
