Lion Sleeps Tonight

I’ve been busy today!

I started by pulling out all my onesies out of my suitcase and trying to dress my monkeys in them. I convinced Mommy to help me. Then I had her play the Lullaby mobile so they would go to sleep like good monkeys.

Then we did art with tempera paints. This was my second time – and I was so good the first time that I lulled Mommy into complacency. So this time I got to paint my fingers and toes and mouth and pants and table and walls and floors, plus I rubbed my eyes a lot after I painted my fingers. But we got some cool paintings on paper, too. I’ll post pictures of them another time after the camera battery is charged up.

While Mommy was making lunch, I got into the fridge and took bites out of apples and put the apples back in the fridge. I also put some plastic dishes in (they’re better chilled) and some dental floss.

Then I said “bah” and threw the lemons on the floor to see if they would bounce.

Then I took the flour out of the pantry and very carefully measured it with a teaspoon onto the floor. When I had the right amount, I stepped in it and made white footprints everywhere.

Of course, I helped clean up. I love using the little broom and dustpan and spreading dirt around, just like Mommy and Ms. Cathrine do.

Then I had to spoonfeed Mommy my lunch, otherwise how would I ever get done with my food?

I did NOT take my naps. Neither of them.

Then I had to treat my dolly for a black eye with an icee Mommy gave me for my pinched finger.

Then I tried to put pompoms in my nose.

For supper, I decided to try extensions and put spaghetti noodles in my hair.

But now we are all very tired. And since I have no photos of today, I thought I’d embed one of my favorite YouTube videos here. Nothing special about it, but it fits the Africa theme of my blog and makes us smile. So without further ado, may I present Hippo, singing “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.”

That’s all, folks. Have a blessed and restful day. This lion cub’s gonna get to sleep now . . .
