The more things change…

Misu in a sandal

December 2007. T and I were watching TV as our new kitten Misu scampered around our feet, doing all the things that silly young things do. At one point, she was out of our field of vision and we heard frantic thumping, followed by a resigned whine. After a minute, I went over to investigate and found this sorry sight. The look on her face was one of, “Sigh. Life is hard.” Being the loving parent I am, I immediately grabbed my camera and snapped a photo before freeing her. This photo remains on my phone to this day because it is so much fun to share.

July 2015. T and I were again watching TV as our new-ish toddler scampered around our feet, doing all the things that silly young things do. (Including chasing a now much more sedentary Misu, by the way.) At one point, most of him was hidden behind a coffee table so we could only see the top of his head. We heard frantic thumping, followed by a resigned whine. After a bit, I went over to investigate and found this sorry sight. The look on his face was one of, “Sigh. Life is hard.” Being the loving parent I am, I immediately grabbed my camera and snapped a photo before freeing him. It will remain on my phone, probably long after he is married, so I can share them both side by side. Also, I posted them to the internet.

I am a mean, mean mommy. 😀
