Three Little Kittens

I still have one of my beloved melamine plates from my childhood set. 

Kitties Plate

Whenever I look at it, I fill with cheer.  It reminds me of my favorite Little Golden Book as a child, “The Wait-for-Me Kitten”.

It is about a good little kitten who is always late.   She gets blamed for all the mischief her brothers would get into.  In the end though, Mrs. Dog rewards the little kitten by baking her a tuna fish pie which she shares with the other kittens.  My co-workers would probably get a kick knowing that this was my favorite book, since I am often just a few minutes late. 

I am smiling.
