Who We Are

Thursday, June 12, 2014


Greetings to all, it's me, Maggie.  I've been showing you mostly my playful, sometimes defiant, but always ready for an adventure side lately, so I thought I'd show you another side of me today.

Here I am, checking on Mom while she downloads photos:

"Hello.  Can I help?"

That's Mom's knee, at right.  I like to be in touch, so to speak.  It's the best way to help.

I'm very good at helping! I especially like to help Mom when she's in the kitchen. Here we are, making lunch:

"Is that a chicken sandwich?"

Here we are, cooking dinner:

"Hi, Mom."

Here we are at the table:

Me, doing what good girls do while the bipeds eat

Usually Cammie helps out at the table, too:

Cammie and me, doing what good girls do while the bipeds eat

And if Mom and I are slicing fruit, Cam helps in the kitchen, too:

"We're making a salad, Cam!"
"Let me know when she gets the apples out."

What about you?  Do you have both an active, adventurous side and a sweet, cuddly, helpful side?

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  3. Me too, me too. When peeps is at that stupid computer I lie on her feet. She gets annoyed as it is hot and she says I am like a hot water bottle. LOL they are never satisfied. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. what a good help you are Maggie. mom says the kittens are "lots of help" when she is getting their dinner ready, but we don't think she means it :)

  5. Whut a great helper yu are! Specially that kitchen help job. The peepoles need yu to snoopervise an clean up stuff.

    Keep up the great wurk!

  6. I like to help in the kitchen too! I just wish the mom would cook more meat instead of all those vegetables!


  7. You are great helpers. :)

  8. Oh you know I do! I even am very helpful in the mornings when MOM is blow drying her hair. I am right there between her feet incase she needs any help. The bonus of this is when she is done I get a good blow drying too. I love that.

  9. You are your Mom's shadows - we do the same thing too - where ever Mom - we are right there too

    Me and Nellie like to help as well, especially when daddy is in the kitchen preparing dinner. We like to position ourselves right in the middle of the kitchen floor, between the fridge, sink and oven, so we can see what is happening. However, for some reason daddy does not appreciate our efforts. He says we are "in the way". Whatever that means.

  11. I get migraines a lot, and Shyla likes to snooze with her head over my heart when I'm lying in bed feeling awful. It's the sweetest thing.

    You two, Maggie and Cammie, seem sweet in that very same way!

  12. I'm the same way you are, Maggie! I especially love to lay across mom's feets when it's pizza day. We don't want her to get up and leave without offering me a smidge, do we!

    Love ya lots♥

  13. I am SUPER helpful just like you, Maggie! My biggest chore is helping Momma make the bed. I don't think she could do it without me. Usually Cinderella helps her out at the computer, but I'm always her kitchen helper!

  14. Maggie, you are a great helper! we love helping our mom too...but somehow she doesn't see it that way...
