My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Cats and Kids

We have 2 cats.


Speedy (aka Speedy-girl)

and


Mr. Ima Mess Boots (aka Bootsy)

With 3 kids under the age of 4 and 2 cats it seems like there's ALWAYS someone in my lap. Today is no exception. I actually have everyone asleep, 3 kids plus 1 husband and came in here to surf a bit. I have spent the last hour putting Speedy back on the floor. She just insists on sitting in my lap. And, in case you were wondering. I just took that lovely picture of her SITTING IN THE TUB OF SUGARS' CLEAN CLOTHES. aarrrggghhh!!
This reminds me of something funny that happened a few days ago. We've had Speedy since before we were married. That's 8 years now. We got her as a kitten and because we waited (not so patiently) [read tried] for 2 years before being blessed with kids she got treated more as a kid than a pet. Still does, actually. So the other day I'm in the computer/sewing/Sugars' bedroom and it's time for me to leave. I don't let the cats have access to this room cause I don't want cat hair in my 4 month old's crib (or clothes). So I was trying to shoo Speedy out of this room. I told her repeatedly "out" Which she does understand, but was ignoring.
That's when it happened.

Yes, I did.

I COUNTED TO THREE, TO THE CAT!

When I told Subvet, he laughed and handed me the keys to the van, saying you NEED to get out of here for awhile.
I love that man!

It's funny how our pets think they can rule...my dear dog Bert, although he knows he doesn't rule...love to come and sit on the floor next to me in my office...he is so sweet....the moment I get up to do something he is right up with me...funny doggy....

You have a fun and interesting blog....your adventures are great....my girls are all grown...and they weren't that close together either...oh couldn't imagine.....you seem to be able to keep it together with a good sense of humour....

As far as the Roux goes...my mom use to make it...I can't make it like her....it always went lumpy and we never added milk...so interesting the variations...when it comes to baking it is cook book all the ways...but for meals...nope little of this and a little of that...and herbs from the garden and call it a day....

Thanks for visiting my blog....cheers

Hi, MightyMom, and thanks for visiting and commenting at my place. :-)

I also have 2 cats, or I should say they have me. I just changed the daybed in my spare room because I'm going to be keeping my grandbaby and need a place to change her. I didn't have the comforter spread out flat before my old kitty jumped up and made herself at home. I just called to my hubby in the living room that it's a good thing I changed the bed in here or Candy wouldn't have a place to sleep. :-)

I looked at the post before this and I understand those directions for making sausage gravy perfectly. I'm a Mama taught cook from Arkansas. Nuff said. :-)

Welcome back to my place anytime.

Hugs,

Diane
