Before I came to live here about 8 months ago, my mom used to think making the bed was a chore.
She is really glad I am hear now, because I make it a fun game!
I play “jump on the bed” when she is pulling up the bedspread or sheet or blanket, so I get a fun “ride,” and she gets a little extra upper body strengthening workout.
When she is changing the sheets, I jump on the mattress so she can fluff the sheet over me and I have to wiggle my way out.
I love to try to bite the pillows while she is trying to stuff them into fresh pillowcases.
And when it is all done, it’s a BLASSSST to grab my donut, get a really fast running start from the living room, and jump up on the bed and skid across it to the other side and jump off. This fluffs things up a bit more comfortable than having the bed covers being all flat and tucked in. That’s NOT comfortable!
It’s great fun, and there is nothing like playtime FIRST thing in the morning, before Mom has her coffee or has time to get dressed or brush her teeth. Morning is PLAY time! Well – after MY breakfast of course. But then… it is all about playtime.
Isn’t my mom lucky to have me to turn a mundane chore like making the bed into a really fun game?
She’s not so sure, but you get it – right?
