Boy’s Best Friend

I know dogs are considered man’s best friend, but we only have cats here and Maggie is definitely doing her best to fill the role for Simeon.

He was having trouble sleeping last night.  I’m somewhat inclined to say night terrors, but I thought he outgrew it and I have no idea what the trigger may have been.   Maybe just a nightmare?

At one point, he asked for a lullabye to go back to sleep – “Me and My Teddy Bear” a song my mom used to sing to me when I was little….

Me and my teddy bear
we have no worries and we have no cares.
Me and my teddy bear
we play and play all day.

Every night he’s with me
when I climb up the stairs
and by my bed he listens
until I’ve said my prayers

Me and my teddy bear
we have no worries and we have no cares.
Me and my teddy bear
we play and play all day.

At some point I added my own lyrics for a new verse/song

Me and my kitty cat
I love her and she loves me back.
Me and my kitty cat
I love her so very much.

Every night she’s with me
when I climb into bed
and on my pillow she sleeps
right beside my head

Me and my kitty cat
I love her and she loves me back.
Me and my kitty cat
I love her so very much.

As I was singing the last verse, I noticed Maggie had climbed onto bed.  When I stood up, she continued up to Simeon’s pillow and sat watching him.

A little later, I heard Simeon again.  Headed upstairs and found Maggie at the foot of his bed curled up in her spot.  I got Simeon to go to the bathroom and as I was covering him up, he asked to pet Maggie.  I picked her up and put her next to him.  He pet her a couple times and then laid his arm over her.  She was purring and settling in as I left.
