A Birthday Surprise from Allegra and Ruby

birthday-cats

Hi everyone, it’s Allegra and Ruby! Guess what! Today is Mom’s birthday. Even though Mom had one of her very long and informative posts about some very important topic scheduled for today, we decided that her birthday is more important. So we rescheduled her important post for next week, and instead, we’re surprising her for her birthday!

Ruby: Look Allegra, I got Mom forget-me-nots. They’re her favorite flowers!

Allegra: That’s very thoughtful of you, little one. I got her her favorite cake.

Ruby: Is it tuna cake?

Allegra: No silly. It’s strawberry cake with lots of whipped cream.

Ruby: Oooh, I like cream. But it would be even better with tuna! And what’s up with one candle on the cake? I know Mom is older than one!

Allegra: Ruby! It’s not polite to talk about Mom’s age!

Ruby: How about we snuggle with Mom all day long, and sit on the keyboard to keep her away from the computer so she can’t get any work done?

Allegra: Now that’s more like it, Ruby.

Ruby: And then maybe she’ll be so happy, she’ll give us tuna?

Allegra: Sighs. Please join us in wishing our Mom a happy birthday. She’s the best!

Ruby: We love you, Mom!
