Snuggles on Sunday - MOTHERS!

Tama-Chan: Actually, it isn't Mother's day here in France until June 7th, but we thought we would join in the celebrations by many of our friends elsewhere and introduce you to our mothers. We are all three very fortunate in that we are still in touch with our mothers!

So, let me start with my own Mama whose name is Bassano del Grappa:



She lives over at Uncle U's, along with her own mother, Viña del Mar, who is in fact little Sei-Chan's mother. We had lots of photos of Viña on the blog when she and Sei-Chan lived in our back room for a couple of months. Here is a favourite mother and daughter shot:



Now Tommy's Mama, Minnie, lives in Normandy, not far from the coast. She has promised to come and visit us one day soon. Here is a photo of her taken on the day #1 first met Tommy:



Of course, we now all consider #1 to be our Mummy, and we show her we love her in different ways. As you know, I am very shy, so I am not very demonstrative but, when she is not paying attention, I love to get close to her. Tommy is always with her. Every time she moves, he moves too. She says it took her a while to get used to having a constant shadow with her! As for Sei-Chan, she is an absolute Mummy's Girl. She has been with #1 since she was four weeks old, even though Viña was also with her until she was 12 weeks old, so the two are very tight. This is the scene most mornings:



The crook of #1's arm is definitely the place to be for that little girl!

Since we no longer live with our mothers, we form snuggly bonds with each other. Little Sei-Chan is still very young and focused on playing but I think that she and I are going to make quite a pair!



Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone!

  1. Awwww, warm fuzzies! I see where you got your good looks from, TC!

    Mummy always wakes up in the morning to find me positioned just like Sei-Chan in that shot with #1. She says it makes for a lovely start to the day.
