A Test of Wills

A Test of Wills

Every day I wake up really excited, looking forward to my breakfast of sweet potato.  Lately, I’ve been progressively waking up earlier in anticipation of my tasty breakfast…Momma seems cranky about that.  Dadz on the other hand doesn’t seem to notice, he sleeps through it…Momma seems cranky about that too.  I sleep on Momma and Dadz bed and in the morning, when I’m hoping to encourage someone to get up and feed me, I like to roll around, wiggle to and fro, and then come within inches of Momma’s face, staring at her until she opens her eyes. Hello! I say to her in my Mattie-like way. She always opens up one eye and peeks out at me. I’m all smiles, tail wagging…. Momma pulls the covers over her head in response. I’m not daunted.  I happily take my paw and gently pat her face, or at least what I think is her face…hard to truly tell because her face is all blanket covered.  Pat, pat, pat.  She pulls the covers down and stares at me.  Unphased, I’m all smiles and I stare back at her, all happy with my fluffy little tail wagging. “Mattie, go back to sleep,” she mumbles and rolls over.  Sometimes, in the morning, I think that’s my name…”Mattie, go back to sleep,” on any given morning my Momma mumbles that to me about 5 times. I think she’s hoping I’ll go back to sleep, but I can’t be sure. My best guess is that she needs more encouragement.  So I always walk to where Momma’s rolled over to on the big bed…I dig around...
