So, yesterday and today Tukey and I played a game we made up and it's really fun, it takes almost no props to play, and hardly even ANY energy. It's best played in the morning, and sunshine is required.
We played "Kitty Cat."
The sun was actually out yesterday, and in our house, we have a window above our front door that lets in loads of sunlight. In the morning, it hits right at the upstairs landing in the hallway just in front of Tukey and Ajers bedroom. Somehow (don't ask me how or why?) we decided we were going to be kitty cats so we went into the hallway and I laid down...
(Grammatical sidenote here: "lay, lie, to lay, have lain, lied, layed, laid" has always stumped me and I don't want a grammar lesson here, just go with whatever I wrote, K? Thanks.)
So, he and I were lying on the hallway floor, basking in the sun, talking about being cats and stretching in the warm spot and shielding our eyes every now and then from the light. And, No! WE DID NOT START LICKING OURSELVES!
Tukey decided that I would be much, much more comfortable if he were to get a pillow and blanket for me so he went into his bedroom and grabbed like six pillows and his blankets and his crab pillow, and his Hulk pillow, and his soccer ball pillow and we snuggled on the floor in the sun for like an hour.
And, far be it for me not to play a game by the book, and in doing what a normal cat would do, I felt it was my motherly duty to perform like a cat in the sun...
I fell asleep.
It was the most fun game we have EVER played!
So, today, when he came into my room, he said, "Let's play the Kitty Cat game again!"
This time, I got MY pillows and blanket, and he got out all the same stuff he had from yesterday and we played the game again. He even asked if he could have a bag of chips up there (I am the meanest mom when it comes to food in the house outside of the kitchen!), and I actually said YES!
So, Tukey sat up there, munching his chips, and doing a Madagascar word find puzzle, lying in the sun, while I pretended to be the pet cat he is never going to have.
I am so excited Tukey invented this game. I hope we get to play it every day!
