Naughty or Nice?

Oh, the injustice...the humiliation....! Not that I didn't deserve it. I don't know what got into me, but that rather expensive camel-colored slip on loafer looked infinitely more appetizing than my rawhide chewie. Really REALLY it did. Mom caught me red-handed ( just as I was removing the stitching from the top of the shoe. "NOOOOOOOOOOO!", she hollered and I dropped it. I knew right then and there I'd made a bad choice.

"Come here, Mary-Margaret!". Uh-uh, not with THAT tone in her voice. So I walked away. And she walked after me. I kept going and she kept going. Down the stairs and round and round through the kitchen, the dining room, the living room, the family room, and back through the kitchen again. Finally, I dashed up the stairs and into Mom's office. Sneaky, she is. She CLOSED the doors and came after me. I tried hiding behind her desk but she is a patient stalker. Verrrrrry patient. Finally, she said "Get over here, Mary-Margaret!", and (to be honest) I knew I had it coming. So I walked over and sat in front of her with my head hanging down.

She picked me up and took me right over to "the shoe". And she pointed me right to the now unraveled stitching and said "NO!!" and swatted me on my hiney!. Then she said "Shoe? NO!!" several times over. I know...I know. I'll never do it again. Really I won't. I promise. But she didn't understand me. So I started licking her chin, over and over. Finally she relented and forgave me. She said "NO SHOE!" and then she said "I love you, Mary-Margaret!". I swear...I'll NEVER EVER do that again.

I feel so bad. And it's just before Christmas, which...I might add....would seem more Christmassy if Mom would put up a tree. I think I've made my point though, and I'll probably see one this weekend. I hope so, anyway.

Love, Mary-Margaret

A cute little girl like you is allowed one oopsie once in awhile. That was smart of you to give kisses Mary-Margaret! Santa will forgive you.

Hi Mary Maragaret! I'm sorry about your shoe! I eat a lot of things Mommy and Daddy don't want me to eat. Mommy told me that when I talk to you have I be on my best behavior because you a beautiful, proper lady. So, I'd like to invite you to play Christmas tag with me and my friends. Mommy doesn't normally get into this type of thing, but since it's Christmas she said we could play. For more information you can check out my blog! Talk to you later!

My sweet MM, Chewing on your mommy's things can get you in deep trouble as you know. I'll be sending your Xmas gift in the next few days & I'll add some chewies to it so you can chew your own goodies. Stay good for your mom cuz Santa knows if your good & behaving. You don't want to be on his bad girl list so, go give your mommy some more kisses. Love Aunt Shelly & the gang
