In which Melly helps

A friend and coworker of mine is expecting a baby next month, so I've been doing a lot of knitting of tiny hats and shopping for tiny things. (It's so hard to resist the wee shoes!) Her baby shower was on Saturday, so I had some presents to wrap; Melly decided to assist.  The presents came from Amazon in a perfectly cat-sized box, and Melly was kind enough to sit in the box to make sure it didn't blow away. Which can happen on kitchen tables. 

"Look at me, I'm helping."

"I'm also very much not on the kitchen table."

"Because I'm in a box, obviously."

"This is getting boring. There isn't room to lay down."

When she was done with the box, Melly generously shed all over the wrapping paper, thus ensuring that every piece of tape on the wrapped presents was garnished with several black cat hairs.

LOL! We think Melly did a terrific job supervising the entire procedure. And of course the furred-up wrapping paper just adds to the decorative effect of the package.

We LURVE Amazon boxes! Melly, you are SO not on the table...that's a stupid human rule, anyway!

Our Mommy wraps stuff in the garage. It's mean.

Well done, Melly!

I have been keeping Amazon boxes around for 9 as well. He makes sure they don't blow away, too.
