Today I felt like pushing my boundaries.
Mom was not pleased.
She made me go inside.
So I decided to take a nap.
My tail had other ideas...
You can see I'm slowly dozing off,
but my tail just doesn't quit.
I finally held it down so I could sleep.
After a good nap,
I moved to the window.
Then it was back outside to test my boundaries.
I started off pretending to behave.
Then I crept forward...
I played it cool.
I made myself comfortable on the sidewalk.
Then I pushed my boundary further...
Again...Mom was not pleased.
This was, after all, my second offense of the day.
She tethered me.
I made the best of it.
Mom left with Sarcastic Monday.
While she was gone, I tested Daddy's patience.
Uncle and Auntie came over.
Finally Mom came home.
Everyone ratted me out.
Mom scolded me a bit,
but she was understanding and played with me to get my wiggles out.
Even so, I sensed she was unhappy about the way I behaved
while she was gone.
So I curled up behind her on the couch.
I'm sorry I was such a brat today, Mom.
I'll be better tomorrow.
