A crumby day

Why, WHY did I serve blueberry muffins for breakfast and then make friggin' cupcakes for my 3-year old's birthday party? I should have my head examined. I know damned well that muffins and cupcakes are two of the messiest foods around; the crumbs are driving me insane. Also, there's frosting in my hair. Also, I had all 5 kids this morning. Also, the 3-year old freaked out when I wouldn't allow him to have a birthday cupcake at 8:05am. Mean AJWP--"I don't like you," he told me, all teary and angry. I'm finding it hard to have much sympathy.

But oh! the love. I feel it deeply for my Clary B., who set to work cleaning up crumbs like it was her job. This time last year, she was more work than 3 kids put together. This year, she's my right-hand gal. I never was a dog person before Clara, but now we're a team.

Clara deserves a rest after all that cleaning.

She's the sweetest, sweetest thing ever. Lennie her a little extra for me.

Oh, and by the way, you HAVE clearly lost your mind.

Shit no! I would have melted into a puddle on the kitchen floor if I'd served couscous with all those crumby foods.

Ah, AJWP, enjoy Clary's cleaning of crumbs for now. I swear, as they get older, they decide it isn't worth it for crumbs. And for Jazzy, the novelty wore off on Cheerios, too.

Clary is too cute all curled up. We have one of those dogs that has turned from terror to terrific--isn't it wonderful what love, time, maturity, and work can do?

Canada, no! Please say it isn't so. Clara's better than a vacuum, and I treasure her hoovering abilities. And sster, it really is amazing. Clara was nutty a year ago, but she's getting to be so dependable and calm(ish). I love it!
