This is another episode of previously on Amara and comes from September of 2008. She was almost 4 and ½.
Grampy and I are always joking about Twursula “holding the bed down” because that cat sleeps more than any other cat and she sleeps very hard. Only 2 thing that can interrupt Twursula’s sleeping, the trash guys and the sound of a lawn mower any where in the neighborhood.
On this particular morning Amara and I were sitting on the bed petting Twursula while she was sleeping. I made a joke about “Twursula doing her job”. Amara wanted to know what Twursula’s job was and I told her — “holding down our bed”.
At first Amara didn’t get it so I explained to her that sometimes the bed tries to get up and take off and it is Twursula’s job to hold it down and not let it fly away. She thought about this for a few minutes and then put her head back and started laughing.
“Peanut Butter does that for me sometimes Grandma!”
“Yes, the other day my bed tried to take off and fly out the window and Peanut Butter just jumped on it and held it down!”
She has the greatest imagination! She is really into pretending! And besides, she “gets” Grandma and is almost as silly as I am.
