Weekend Letter to Mom



First off, if you are ever again inclined to go to the post office "for a few minutes" and thinking of leaving me home again saying "I'll be right back!", don't bother trying to pull that on me again. FOUR hours is NOT right back....at least to a Yorkshire Terrier who is drinking lots of water to stay well hydrated.

Secondly, if you spot a kitty outside the perimeter wall, tell me quietly so I can sneak up on it. The "surprise" factor is lost when you yell, "Kitty, Mary-Margaret! KITTY..KITTY...KITTY!". (I showed you how to do it when I spotted that raven on the chimney this morning for you. Stop, stare and stay still. You said "Birdie?", and I glanced at you and then back at the bird until you came out and saw it. That's how it's done!)

Thirdly....and this is REALLY important, ok? When we get up in the morning what is the first thing YOU do? Well, I'd like to do that, too. So check your email AFTER you open the slider and you won't have to pick up anything from the dining room carpet. Fortunately for us both my digestive functions are normal and ...shall we say..."solid"?

Fourthly....we have a Queen sized bed. There's plenty of room for both of us. Do you have to take up the whole thing? Do you have any idea what it's like to be knocked off the bed in the middle of a sound sleep? Do you? Hmmmmmm???? I understand now why my Aunt Rose (Rest her soul!) would attack your head in the middle of the night. Remember how long it took for that bald spot on the back of your noggin to fill in?

Fifthly...(I think that's a word)...I think you are the greatest mom in the world and I love you more than life itself, so please don't take this the wrong way? But, as much as you like to play "This little piggy" on my feet and, when you run out of toes you say, "And all the little piggies went wee wee wee all the way home" while jiggling my entire foot....it drives ME crazy. There! I said it. I tolerate it because I love you...period. OK..and once in a while it's a warm and fuzzy mom-pup thing to do. Just not so much, please?

That should do it for now. Now you go get in the shower because we have work to do today. It's going to be hot and I'm planning on sleeping most of the day. I just wanted to get this off my chest.

Love and kisses....

Mary-Margaret

PS - Grandpa? I really REALLY love you, too!!

Hello Gorgeous!

Wow! You sound like my sister the way you talk to your Mommy. I guess I'll just have to wait a few more years before I can do that... Right now, I'm very polite with my parents and do not yell at them when they come home like my Sis and Bro do it every time.
Ha haaa... that is funny about the "gift" you left her on the dining room carpet... I do that too if my Mommy is not on time. It is true when they say that timing is everything ☻

Thanks for the good laughs!
Loving youuu,
Neeko ♥

Boy Mary Margaret is a cutie...and she's right about the bed but maybe it's Mary Margaret who has the problem? My two little ones Cowboy & Codi one 5 1/2 pounds the other ten tend to take up the whole Cal-king we sleep in with PaPa!!

Thank you for sorting this all out. We too have complaints for our Mum and we will be reading this out loud to her tonight. Honestly, we sometimes wonder how the woman ever got this far in life without us. We know you understand.

Love, Dozer, Dottie and Cooper
