The Good, The Bad


Thanksgiving selfie we texted to Mr. M.

Right now, it's 9:20 on Thanksgiving night. I'm sitting here with a mug of sea salt caramel hot chocolate, while I listen to my sweet baby's breathing through the monitor. There's football on. Mr. M is away, yes, but working a job he loves. And Maile and I get to celebrate a whole other Thanksgiving {Hurrah!} on Saturday, with friends.

Also ...

Both floors of the house look like Taz the Tasmanian Devil cycloned through them. My laundry pile from Saturday remains largely undone. And our darling Chester has decided that throwing back to his puppy days, and chewing again, sounds fun. His latest victim? Maile's Mickey plush, who shall be known henceforth as Nearly Noseless Mickey (Nearly noseless? How can you be nearly noseless?) Maile keeps saying to me, "Mimi! Ouch! Mimi? Ouch!" This mother better fix Mimi's ouch, stat.

But hey. I didn't overstuff myself at our neighbors' Thanksgiving celebration. So, I'm gonna chalk this day up as a win.

    1. Hehe. You are so right! Maile doesn't have any older siblings to tempt with reverting to infant ways, so one of our pooches has volunteered. Thanks for stopping by! Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Thank you so much, Anna!

      And yes ... It's amazing hot chocolate. Super rich, and I think I still prefer my "go-to" Ghirardelli, but it's fun to change things up sometimes. :)
