Day two of the Quote Challenge and getting closer to the reason for the babygate.

 On our second day of the quote challenge , we chose a quote from the writer May Sarton. We value this quote since we feel that we live in a society that places far too great an emphasis on youth, and in doing so, we , as adults, can often downplay the experience and wisdom of our years.  

" Do not deprive me of my age. I have earned it."

            ~ May Sarton ~

 Levon, " Well you've heard about the babygate but did you know there is a large, box-like structure of wire that has also been set up especially for my enjoyment?!"

 Levon, " I'm lying on it! The top is piled high with blankets making my experience quite comfortable. I can see all around me which is also very nice!"

 Levon, " In fact, once I jumped on it, I  soon began to feel sleepy and it wasn't long before Malou joined me."

Malou and Levon fast asleep on top of the wire structure set up especially for them! Or not?!

 Drop by on Sunday to see what is behind this blanket and to see why a babygate was set up in the first place.

Have a Fabulous Friday!
See you Sunday for Sunday Selfies.
