Mama's Kittens

Welcome to my attempt to chronicle the yarns & threads of my life and family (stupid pun intended). It is very early Saturday morning (still dark), and I have already been up for a while. My sweet family is sleeping so all is very quiet here. I expect to hear Baby at any moment, or should I say Toddler. It is so sweet to see this transition from crawling to walking those wobbly little steps. Thankfully, we are at the end of weeks and weeks of illness, and I am very, very tired of giving antibiotics. Feb. 13 is the last day of Toddler Girl's antibiotics, only 2 more days!

I am attempting to make peace with our new kitty for the sake of Dancer Girl and Toddler Girl who both love new kitty. New kitty keeps bringing me feathery presents in my living room, and I am getting tired of recleaning my carpet. I finally figured out that I should set my cat door on a one-way setting. Kitties can go out, but have to ask nicely to get back in....

Scratch, scratch, "Meow...."
"Do you have anything to declare? Anything with feathers or fur? I'm sorry, but you'll have to leave that at the border. You may come in now."

Well, I guess I'll go now. Big Fat Kitty is purring in my face, and giving me that "you haven't fed me since last night" look....
