Maggie and I played with our Pickles while Mom did that "reading" thing. Once I was done with my Pickle, I thought I should go help Mom.
|"Hi, Mom. Need some help?"|
She was sitting on the deck, so I thought I should sit on her lap. You know. Just to be extra helpful. Maggie came over to see what we were doing ...
|"Hey, what are you guys ... oh, wait! Someone's barking over there!"|
"We're doing the 'reading' thing, Mags."
Since she was done with her Pickle, too, and whoever it was who was barking stopped, Maggie decided to join us. She managed to wedge herself between me and Mom -- not an easy feat!
|"Plenty of room for me in here!"|
"Snuggle up, Mags! We've got 'reading' to do!"
"Umm... girls? Umph!"
For some reason, Mom was done doing "reading" after that and decided to get us to pose instead.
|"I like this 'reading' thing, Mags."|
"Me, too. I feel so scholarly."
It was great fun!
