I live in the moment. I don’t think about yesterday or worry about tomorrow.
Food – Mom thinks about buying it and fixing it. I eat it.
Shelter – Mom thinks about paying for it and keeping it repaired and comfortable. I live in it.
Attention – Mom hopes I will sit with her and ask to be petted. I get petted when I want it.
Water – Mom, well I don’t know Mom’s relationship with water. I knock my bowl around if it is empty and Mom fills it. I run when a bath is imminent.
Sleep – Mom schedules her sleep for certain night hours. I sleep whenever I want.
It’s good to be me.
I am Lexi.
