Nap Time For Kitty

As the kids sat around undecided and blaize… A summer project was needed ever so badly today… My crew wavered and together finally exclaimed… They wanted a video and to make it spectacular this time… Anything less than U Tube quality would be a crime… So the kids ask for a poem about their favorite fare, They wanted it full of a large quantity of action and flair. And the topic they wanted, that warmed their hearts… Were the antics of Dandylion the cat of our house. So cat chasing and spying became a spectacular game… As they watched the kitty pounce upon his little rag mouse. Then he slid and he jumped as he ran through the house. He attacked the dogs tails as he snuck up behind… And he climbed to the window to count birds passing by… Then he tried to jump on the counter as I made everyone’s lunch. He had to eat first… there was no other way, than first… Then later I put the baby down for a nap… And surprise, surprise! I found the Kitty next to baby with 4 paws to the sky. The video, music, and poetry would eventually come to be… With the older kids stringing it together for me. It was finally good for a lot of laughs… As the kids all got copies for dear Mom and Dad… But now let me instruct and suggest as all videos must: Though many a one was happily surprised and beset… No Animals were hurt in the making of “Nap Time for Kitty”... Of that, you can bet...
