BUT I THOUGHT WAS MOMMY'S BABY
From the mouth of Bex to the keyboard of Mom-Mom
by Janet Goldenberg
The arrival of a new baby can bring many changes to a family. All this change can be hard for older siblings or in this case, pets to handle. Bex was used to getting all of mommy and daddy's attention before the baby's arrival. When the new baby enters the picture, his sense of security is jeopardized. All the attention seems to go to the new baby. This results in feelings of jealousy and anger and to the illogical fear of being replaced and castaway.
As the days go by, Bex feels loved again and even looks at the baby with interest.
Stuck in my mind with tons of reprints is a children's story that I always wanted to tell. I got sidetracked with BUT I THOUGHT I WAS MOMMY'S BABY about the arrival of a new baby and a cat who is adjusting to the change in the house. FELINE FRACTALS FANTASY finds the two cats, Bex and Phil in fractal form with funny cat quotes. Ever since I dressed cats in doll clothes when I was little, cats have been my inspiration for most of my stories. In A CAT ABROAD ON THE STREETS OF HEIDELBERG Phil tells his incredible tale of getting stuck in a suitcase and then ending up in Heidelberg, Germany. I found cows delightful and put them into print in UDDERLY RIDICULOUS, look for them later. HEPPENHEIM AND BENSHEIM AN DER BERGSTRASSE is A PHOTO TOUR that can be found on Blurb as well.
