Tattle Tale Tuesday

In case you haven't figured it out yet, mom has three speeds.

On, Sleep and Overdrive.

There is no "Off". (Auntie has been looking for mom's off switch for decades). Sleep comes close, though. Unlike me. Who knows how to relax, take it easy, lay low, etc...

I mean seriously, look at me? Aren't I being a good example of how to relax?

You think I could teach mom? Nope, doesn't work. I tried. Trust me. But you know what they say, "It's never too late to teach an old bean new tricks." So I keep on trying. Maybe one day she'll get it. Just don't hold your breath.

I think you'll have to teach by example and work harder at the nap thing. MORE NAPS FOR YOU!!!!

Karen Jo said...

You are certainly giving your Mom good examples of how to relax. Maybe someday she will catch on.

You look so relaxed and sleepy. Give it time and maybe your Mom will start following your good example.

Hi Roxy! I'm like you - I have no problem relaxing. I could relax all day. I guess maybe I have two speeds - off and 1/2 on. Hahaha.

Good luck teaching your mom how to relax. Anything is possible, but I think you really have your worked cut out for you.

I think you just need to keep showing her until she gets it!!

Hi Roxy,

Our Mom is the same way, so we can sympathize. We think that if you keep at it, eventually she'll catch on. We keep hope that our Mom will slow down a bit and enjoy life like us munchkins do.

You are so very cute when you are relaxing!

Chihuahua kisses,

Hi Roxy!
Once you train your mom to relax, do you think you could let me know how to do it? My Owner Girl could sure use some intense relaxation!
