Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

Well, Princess Leia taught us a new trick this week. She was riding in the car with her head out the window. When she pulled her head back inside, I rolled the window up. Later, she decided that she wanted to sniff the breeze again. Our pup shoved her nose into the corner of the window and repeatedly poked at the window with her snout. I rolled the window down and she was happy. She just taught her people a new trick!

But all was not fun and games with our big puppy. I had to borrow Choco’s car when one of the boys unexpectedly got on the bus and Scruff was in town with our car. Leia jumped in the back seat, like normal, to go and get her boy from the bus. I heard a tearing noise and quickly pulled over. Leia had braced a paper in her paws and was working hard to tear it up. I saved the paper. It was Choco’s vehicle registration with the new tabs taped on the top. They required some repair work before I gave them back, but thankfully the important document was not beyond hope.

The winner this week . . .

I have a ‘no food’ rule for the boys’ bedroom. Nonetheless, when I was tucking Sweet Boy#3 into bed the other night, we couldn’t help but notice that his pillow was covered in ketchup. How strange? Where had it come from? No one had any idea. I followed the dribbles and saw that they originated in Sweet Boy#2’s upper bunk. Apparently, he had stashed a ketchup packet beneath his mattress at some point, the packet shifted, he climbed into bed, stepped upon the illegal packet, it burst and sprayed ketchup down the bed and onto Sweet Boy#3’s pillow. Mystery solved! The ‘no food’ rule, obviously still necessary.


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