Pup Takes Over

Like most parents, I'd forgotten what it's like when Baby Takes Over. Our house is strewn with toys, misplaced shoes, and chewed pieces of cardboard. Our newly mulched side yard has big holes in it where Puppy has dug frantically. Our eyes are red-rimmed from lack of sleep, and we have tiny puncture wounds in our hands and feet. Everything smells vaguely of Puppy. We're settling into a kind of routine, though. After Paul goes to work and O goes to school, Puppy showers with me (she likes that a lot, being a lab) and then runs with her sisters around the entire lawn. After that, she can sometimes be persuaded to nap for an hour or two so I can get some work done.
