Mom's Birthday

Today was Mom's birthday.

Which means I was not the center of attention.


I went from one Box of Rebellion to the other.


Mom tried to entice me into joining her party.


I considered it.


I played...


briefly.

Daddy left and came home with dinner.

It smelled good.


But I didn't really want any.

I just liked smelling it.


The truth is,
I just wanted to steal Mom's chair.

So I did,
every time she stood up.


But then she'd take it back
and I'd retreat to a nearby chair and wait.


I gave up for awhile
and made a good effort to look miserable.
 Auntie was kind enough to come comfort me.


Eventually I left Mom standing while I enjoyed my victory.


Happy Birthday, Mom!
