Cat Burglar

The other day, my daughter ran into my room wearing a long black cape and her brother’s skeleton halloween mask.

She said, “I’m a cat burglar!”

Then she grabbed the fluffy sleeping cat off of my bed, tucked him under her arm, and ran out of the room.

  1. Oh and just as a reminder, I blog because I’m an author and one of my fellow authors wrote a wonderful article about some of us. Check it out if you have time.

  2. I believe she also made an appearance during Easter dinner, when she announced she was the hamburglar and ran off with the main course.

    that is such a cute story. Any photos?

  4. She didn’t fancy the new bear then?

  5. I was thinking of using a Sopranos reference, but I don’t think it would be appropriate here. Maybe next time she’ll put a dorsal fin on her back, ‘swim’ up to you, hand you some money, and tell you she’s a loan shark.

  6. That’s a great story. Children take things so literally sometimes.

    Of course, the cat was really just waiting for help with its escape plans.
