We’re Getting Excited Now!

Mom’s coming home tonight.  Mom’s coming home tonight!

My birthday’s only two days away.  My birthday’s only two days away!

Shakespeare, aren’t you excited that Mom’s coming home tonight?

Sure, it means that my birthday is even closer.

Is that all you think about?

Just because your birthday is by Christmas and there’s all sorts of parties, doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t expect big things on my birthday in the middle of nothing on the calendar.

But think about it.  Since my birthday is by Christmas and the humans are so busy thinking about Christmas,  they sometimes let my special day just slide by.  Right now while I’m still kind of young and very handsome, they make an effort to remember.  What happens when I get older and the humans get older and lose their memories?

I hadn’t thought about it that way.  But I still want everyone to get excited about my birthday.  It’s my very own day!

Don’t you think we should celebrate when Mom adopted us?  I think that’s a really important date to remember.

Right!  We each have two very special days to celebrate.

I still think you should get a little excited about Mom coming home tonight.

Will she give us treats when she gets here?

A “Really Lot”

Can I borrow your toes and fingers?

Mmmfft….mmmmmmm….y..a..w..n………..     What????

Can I borrow your toes and fingers?

You woke me up to ask a silly question like that?  Why do you need my toes and fingers?

Mom said that we have almost 100 posts on our blog and I was just trying to figure out how many that really is.  I ran out of toes and fingers so I need more.

I don’t think you’ll have enough even if you use my toes and fingers and Mom’s toes and fingers.

Wow!!!!  That’s a really lot then.

Yes, it’s a “really lot”.

I guess we’ve had all sorts of things to talk about in 2011.

Now we’re going to have to come up with some new things for 2012.

Why?  What’s happening?

Tomorrow is December 31st and that’s the last day of 2011.  The next year is going to be 2012.

That means my second birthday is in 2012.  I really like that year!!!

Fine.  Now let me go back to sleep.
