Mad Mad Maddie and her Mellow Mantra

She is tough. She is mean. She is apt to punch you in the nose, or merely growl in your direction. She is Madeline, aka Mad Mad Maddie, and she has received a very stern warning. Santa Claus is watching her. She saw the man just yesterday and he has made it abundantly clear that he knows what is going on around here. So she has been given two mantras to repeate over and over...

1. I am a kind and gentle spirit and I will do no harm to anyone.

2. I am a vessel of non-violence, and I have no spirit of anger in my heart.

These two simple phrases are vexing her.

She always tags at the end of them, "because Santa is watching me" which is fine because if it makes her stop giving her sisters a reason to cry.
