Growing Up

Abby: My Mom has been telling me for a long time that part of growing up is learning to share. Sharing can be one of the finer things in life, she says.

I didn't really believe her until recently. I mean, I like playing "Queen of the Cat Condo" as much as any other cat does. Sharing the bed with Stygia to comfort the people when they were not feeling well was okay. But... but sharing space with Mom like this, oh! It was wonderful:

Warm! Comfy! It's not so warm outside any more, so sharing Mom's lap was a great comfort to both her and me. She was right.

Sometimes sharing is hard, and sometimes is easy. And sometimes sharing is in the eye of the sharer. Mom says sharing her lap with three mancats is very, very hard!

Abby, If I can get my mom to sit still long enough WITHOUT THE COMPUTER IN HER LAP, I might share her lap with her..in which case, she doesn't get up until I do!

That's a mighty lesson you learned about sharing, Abby.
BTW, is there anything to share on the art project by your mom? Just curious!

That kind of sharing does seem delightful! I don't mind sharing with my mom but sharing with my sibs is so very much harder.

Isn't sharing a lap just the best thing ever? Of course, that's only when we want to share and not the other way around.
