She sits on my Mom and acts like she owns her too.
I am the warm body that lies against her legs every night.
I am the one by her side when nothing else is going right.
I am there to help her clean up the pine cones in the yard.
I am there to lick her scratched knees and bumped elbows.
I am there when she is digging in the garden or painting in the kitchen -
and I NEVER step in her paint or get my nose in her glue.
I am the superior child and she is a dirty no goodnik.
Except when she is willing to swat paper or socks from the top of the chest of drawers,
down to me.
