Look at me! I knows how to read acause Mommy spend so much time showin me letters and makin the letter sounds for me! Well, okay. I still doesn’t know how to read, but I knows how to look at pick-shures! Whatchu get for Chris-mas, mah friends?
Hullo friends. Did you knows that every year, I get a speshul inside-tree in mah house? It are for the Chris-mas! I always helps mah parents dec-o-rate it so it look the most byoo-tee-ful. I shows you how to make a tree at your house!
First you gotta pick the best tree of all the trees at the tree shop. Mommy and Daddy and Grandma Grandpa do this part acause I not allowed to go the tree shop. But I sit by the tree and inspeck it when it get home!
Then your tree is made! After it all made, we sits on the couch and we looks at it. It so twink-lee! Mommy puts the yule log on the TV, which are mah fav-o-rite show. It jus like we has a fireplace, asept that I can’t burns mah toes. I hope you all gots nice trees this year mah friends!
Do you know it are the sol-stiss? This mean it are winter! Winter mah fav-o-rite acause I love snows. But also, sol-stiss a good time to think bout your bee-hayv-yours and de-cide to be good.
Mommy tells me this. She tell me, long long long time ago, I were a little wolf, and I live in the woods with her, and she something called a droo-id prees-tiss. And in the woods, we spend time with the nature and we helps the other animals and our friends and we know helpful magics. So Mommy say this year, for sol-stiss, we gonna pree-tend it just like that. (Acept it raining, so we does it inside instead of in the woods which are mah fav-o-rite place.) For Sol-stiss, we gonna make in-ten-shun.
In-ten-shun just like a promise you makes, but like, a extra promise, not to jus your Mommy and Daddy, but to Yoo-nee-vurse. Mommy help me think of a real good one. We decides that I make mah in-ten-shun that I gonna be so good and that I not gonna guard mah fav-o-rite things anymore. So we waits until mid-night, and Mommy help me write it on a paper, and then she burn the paper up with a candle (I not allowed to do that part, acause fire not for Lucys). I sit verruh far away from candle and watch, and I knows that even though we doesn’t know magics anymore like long time ago, Mommy and I do somethin speshul together for Sol-stiss. It like when we wish on the shooty star last week: I knows the in-ten-shun I make gonna be truth all the year.
Mah friends. Tonight I sees somethin verruh speshul. Mommy and Daddy takes me outside verruh late in the night for to see a meety-shower. It were cold, and mah nose were all chilly, but guess what? I sees mah verruh first shooty star! It go all across the sky, verruh fast, and verruh shiny!
Yes-ter-day, Mommy say, “Lucy I need you to be Chris-mas star! I need you to be mah speshul model!”
Mommy says this not the model pose she need. She say it are time for Chris-mas cards, so I gotta be Chris-mas star again like I were last year and year before.
Bein Chris-mas star are hard. I has to look jus right and sit verruh still and not chew all the things that I wants to chew. I has to not stomp on the Baby Jesus even though I does that all the time by accident. It are usually acause I tryin to pat him on the head. I jus got stompy paws, that all.
Finally, Mommy say I do the pose jus right. She and Daddy make a pick-shure of me and they gonna sends it to all their friends. Mommy say I such a good model, and I get three duck treat. Duck treat are my fav-o-rite. Maybe, Diary, I can bes a model again!
Dear Diary, lately, I been so sleepy.
Dear Diary, I gotta be honest: I think it Mommy’s fault that I sleeps so much. I think she has too many soft comfy things around for mes to snuggle on!
But last night, I re-lize Mommy right: I gots a problem. Last night I so comfy in mah bed that I doesn’t even hear Daddy when he say, “Lucy you gotta go the potty afore bed?” And then in the middle of the night, I wakes up when everyone else sleepin, and I has to go so bad, but I doesn’t want to wakes them, so I jus makes a pee in the hallway. And then I feels guilty, so I sits by mah pee until Mommy sees it. And then I are sad.
So start right now, Diary, I gonna starts to be less sleepy. I gonna be wide awake and plays with everyone and chews mah bone and runs about.
Except maybe I wait until tomorrows. Tonight I jus gon go sleeps one more time, and to-morrow, I wake up and has all mah nice notes from Miss Ronna and Miss Linda and Auntie Katherine and Grandma, and then, I will stays awake for hours. But tonights, I gonna sleeps. Night night everyones!
I know I hate Nanny-Ree-Moo acause it takes Mommy away from me, but I likes it a little better acause I gets a new tee-shirt for me!
See mah shirt? Mah friend Joo-dah make it for me! It say all the things mah Mommy and her friends write bouts in Nanny-Ree-Moo. So I guess, Nanny-Ree-Moo not all that bad, if it give a Lucy a shirt. Thanks mah friend Joo-dah!
Hullo friends! You know what today is? It are the first December! That mean it Chris-mas month!
Every day, Mommy and I moves the little bear to his next place. He look all over, lookin for Chris-mas. Today on December 1, he look in the sleigh. Chris-mas not there, so he gotta keep lookin! I puts the little bear up with mah nose and helps him find all the places Chris-mas might be!
Every day we moves the little bear until he finds Chris-mas! And this how we know how many days until it are present time! I doesn’t even cheats and tells the bear where Chris-mas live (even though I know acause Mommy and I do the call-en-dur every year).
