Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week


My brother was walking up to the camp and noticed one of our boys walking along the side of the road enjoying the deep drifts of snow. Out of nowhere, Princess Leia shot up and tackled our boy. They both disappeared into a snowdrift. Sometimes, she really reminds me of Hobbs the stuffed tiger.

Since I took a break from blogging over Christmas, I have accumulated quite a list of items that Princess Leia has eaten. The boys have really had to defend their gingerbread houses…and various and sundry items.

On Christmas Day she ate

The tendon treat from her stocking

The tooth-cleaning alligator treat from her stocking

Her Bone from her stocking

3 scones off the dinning room table


The little purple bow that I got for her hair–I yanked it out of her mouth, but she was really trying to get it down.

Over break she also ate:

The top off of a loaf of blueberry bread

About a third of a tin of shortbread cookies

Some candy off the side of one of the boy’s gingerbread houses

A few of the walls from the gingerbread houses

The power cord for the boys new video game thingy

The Hunky Hubby’s new blue-tooth headphones

And the Hunky Hubby’s shopping list for camp

She also got up on her hind legs and attempted to drag down her Christmas stocking after we put it back up and attempted to trade a bone for Sweet Boy#2’s pile of almonds. She put the bone on a mattress in the boys’ room and then ran out to the living room to snork down the whole pile of almonds.

To finish out our Christmas adventures. Sweet Boy#3 accidentally stabbed himself in the eye with a pointy candy cane requiring eye drops and TLC and absolutely no laughing whatsoever from his parents.



I promise you a crazed animal, a concussion, and a kiss in every single book...you're welcome!
