Mornings around here mean filled food bowls, topped off water fountains, and a head count. Maxx (1), Ruby (2), and Tessa (3) are always in the bedroom. Miss Newton (4) always wants into the bedroom. Zuzu (5) is always hogging mom’s computer chair. Olivia (6) is always curled up on the couch bed, when she’s not on the dining room table inspecting the decor. And Viola (7), Quint (8), and Pia (9) are always snoozing under the kitchen table on the kitchen chairs. They think they are so smart. And they are right!
