Here Goes Secret Santa Paws…
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
This is my third year participating in a Secret Santa Paws event. I luvluvluv’d doing the last two years and snoopervising the shopping and wrapping. But as you can see, I decided to let The Kid Sage (TKS) get some experience this year.
Mind you, I most definitely did not absent myself totally from the process; rather I participated at a distance.
Well, at least until TKS and I had a few little ‘close calls’. Mom L calls it ‘learning to play’ for me, but I call it ‘TKS being a nuisance’.
It is very important to wrap each item AND add a bow or ribbon of some kind. I myself do not care much for playing with the ribbon, but TKS, well, she gets all crazypants trying to get it out of Mom L’s hands.
So first, we had to make sure the box was just the right size. I helped TKS size it up as she is new at this.
I then invited her to inspect the box to allow her to see how skilled I am at calculating the proper dimensions for maximum fit of all our items.
At least she pays some attention to my teaching and coaching. Before I turned her loose on the task at hand, I did one final inspection of all the material to be used.
Then I left her to get the wrapping and whatnot taken care of.
As for those ‘close calls’ TKS and I had; well, let’s just say once or twice it just might maybe possibly have been a teeny little bit of play practice on my part. I am not sure about that, but it is something I have been contemplating; it just seems easier to hiss and swat but what the heck, maybe I’ll give it a try one day. (hover over photo to view captions)
Hope you had as much fun shopping and wrapping and packing up whatever you sent off to friends and family this year.
