P1140253

My morning routine is pretty standard: up at 4, feed the kitty-kids, write until 6:30-ish, P1140256then head to the day-job. As I fixed breakfast for Alex, Bennett, and Chloe one day, I had to ask myself: who’s really at the top of the food chain in the Alexander household?  I mean, amidst the painful, starving mewls of my three (*snort*), I’m stressing ’cause I’m not moving fast enough for them.  What is wrong with this picture?

The question gnawed at me as they ate.  While I’m at work at the Male Observation Lab, what exactly did these three do with their time?

I’ve made it a point to really pay attention to their routine, even dug through some photos in search of evidence.  I figured that it couldn’t vary much from day to day, right?

After some observation, I think I’ve pretty much figured out what they do while I’m away at the day-job.  *Sigh*  And here’s the evidence:

Nap time.

Camoflaged!

Bennett blends right in.  🙂

Can't a girl nap without interruption?  Go.  Away.  Now.

Man, has it been an exhausting day!

Cat nip time!  (Alex guards his stash by laying right on top of it.)

Oh, what a life!  Play and sleep and cat nip and food and more sleep.  Does it get much better than that?

I know who’s in charge at my house.  Do you know who’s in charge at yours?
