Living With Your Grown-up Children on Mother’s Day…

Mewsette has to lean WAY down for Mimi to clean her up around the ears.

Well, I did enjoy having children until I moved here and saw the light—with a little help from my human mom, of course—but they always went away when I was done with them. Now it appears I’m stuck living with them for the rest of our lives. Sometimes they are so needy…

Of course, at other times, children are a comfort, and I couldn’t imagine my life without these four. Perhaps I now understand why humans tend to keep their children around for such a long time, and why they keep coming back.

Remember, you’re never too big for a little touch-up from your mom, but you can also use a little help from your children.

Happy Mother’s Day to all who are mothers!
