Tag-teaming Daddy!!

My husband just got home from an SCA* meeting followed by the Cave Dwellers band practice he had.  When he began moving the top pillow he uncovered, ta-dah!, Star!!  So, of course, Star was moved.  Up came Thomas.  My husband glared at him.  "Oh no Thomas!!  You're not getting up here!"  You see, Thomas is notorious for getting in your space should you fail to be occupying it.  Naturally Dale scooped Thomas up to shift him out of the way as... you guessed it!!!  Star came sneaking back up onto his pillows.  Arrrrgggghhhh!

Dale picks up Star and puts him down at the end of my side of the bed as I watch, not saying a word.  Back and forth, back and forth.  Ending up with my husband's hands on his hips scowling down at them, "You two are tag-teaming me!!"  ::giggle::  Star & Thomas just looked up at him and then began shifting back towards the coveted pillow space again.  Alas & alack!!  It seems that dad was a wee bit too fast for them.  Thus my husband lays beside me, waiting for me to poke him and make him take his glasses off and actually go to sleep.

 "Now if we both do the song and dance,
we'll look so awesomely cute that he
has to leave us alone!"

 "Poohbears!  Time for Plan B!"

 "Ahem.  What happened is that dad fell asleep.
Then mom fell asleep too!"

"So we control the vertical.
We control the horizontal...
ummm,  what I mean is that we
 finished up the post for today!  Star?
The screen is blurry!  Get me a pair of mom's glasses!"

"Mom & dad both need one of these...
but what to get them?  T-shirt?  Coffee mug?"

*In this case, SCA stands for the Society for Creative Anachronism.


  1. Oh to have a video camera! I'm laughing, imagining the Keystone Kat Kops routine!

  2. Ha! Yes, a video would be fun to see. Even with only the three in my house, of course they snuggle up just where I want to lie down. ;-)

  3. You guys are so funny. Love to see a video. Have a great day.

  4. oh yes that would have made a MOL video!

  5. MOL=you sweet, silly boys!...It probably smells like your Daddy and you guys just wanted to be near him=he's lucky just of the two of you teamed up!!...Happy day handsome friends...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukk

  6. If I can get Dale's video camera working I need to make a number of videos. The Tag-Teaming-Daddy, because they do this all the time! Da Boys as they each roll on the driveway, because they do such a good job of it!! And the Changing of the Cat Guard! I'm sure I'd find more think to make videos of as well!! ::grin::

  7. That is so funny that they both wanted that spot and kept heading back to it! I have had that happen with one cat returning to the same place, but never two at the same time!

  8. Oh we get it all the time!! Our bed is quite popular and Da Boys will stake out a spot and then they'll play "Who will get there first!". It's fun to watch a head peek ovvvver the side of the bed to see if it's already occupied or a cat to come leaping! onto the bed and then stop short because someone is already there. heh heh heh
