The puppy has taken over our lives.  Don't let his little innocent face fool you.  He is a master manipulator, hell bent on eating anything and everything that will easily lodge in his throat, an adept sock/underwear thief, who, when in stealth mode, can poop in ten seconds when in the house (even though it is a process that takes 30 minutes when in the yard).  Ahh, life with a new baby, I had forgotten what it was like.

Summer Survival - the bickering

Oh the bickering, whining, picking, and boredom.  Entertaining the kids during summer break sometimes feels like it should be a full time job.  My kids are in bickering mode which leads to a lot of tattling and whining.  I am so ready to just put them all in their rooms and tell them they have to read quietly the rest of the summer.... I can only dream LOL!  I wonder what other mom's are doing to keep their kids preoccupied during the summer.
