Z = zip, zinger, zapped…

April2016

Have you noticed how fast April Z2016ipped by?

I have.
Seems we just started the
2016 A to Z Challenge
but here it is April 30th
the last day of the month!

This is the sixth year I have participated
in the A to Z Challenge.
Every year has been challenging
but also fun and rewarding.
I have had fun writing my posts
and reading the posts of others.
Every year gets better with more
bloggers joining in with wonderful
diversity of subjects and themes.
Truly the month of April Z2016ips by!

This year as in the past some letters were easier than others.
Sometimes the ones I thought I would Z2016ip through
were Z2016ingers that had my brain Z2016apped.
But I persevered and have completed the Challenge.

The A to Z Challenge 
letter today is
v4p

Hello Everyone,
I have exciting news for you!

I have been
VICTORIOUS
handsome
When Mama adopted me she told me I would have a big brother, Teddy.
She also told me that it would take him awhile to get used to having a sibling.
She said for some becoming a big brother was difficult and little brothers had to be patient.
I have been patient!  Very patient!

I was beginning to think Teddy would never accept that Mama adopted me.
But it seems even the stubbornest of cats eventually come around to the facts of life.

Teddy has agreed to share Mama’s bed.
And he understands that not all the toys are just for him.
Okay, the banana is his, but the rest we share.

We play tag. It’s great fun.
First Teddy chases me then I chase him.
Sometimes we wrestle.
Wrestling is fun too except when Teddy forgets it’s a game
we play for fun not to beat each other up.

Teddy is learning how to be a good big brother
and that makes me a successful little brother.
