The Saturday Morning Post

One Saturday morning on a pretty typical day for us I happened to notice that RJ was following me around with a clipboard drawing things. I didn't think much of it until later when she brought it to me. She handed me a stack of about 4 pages nicely stapled together. 
As she handed it to me she said "Mommy this is a newspaper about our day. I want you to send it out to everyone. Could you write what the pictures are so everyone knows?"
And this is what came out.
Please note that Luna is our middle dog. She had just landed on the losing side of a Cheerio skirmish with our biggest dog that ended in her getting 2 staples in her leg the day before. She was skittish around the kids before the incident and now....

Now generally Mommy doesn't shower in her high heels but I do love that she thinks I'm fancy.

You can tell he's naked because you can see his belly button.

The funniest part of this is that it wasn't even a particularly stressful morning. And that's when it hit me. This is what my life is. For better or worse. At least until we're out of the "3s".



  1. Tell Riley, "Thank you for her newspaper" Loved it.

  2. I love reading about this family❤️. It makes my day happier!

  3. This is sooooooooo cute!!! I love how you can tell he's naked because of his belly button! LOL. (and of course he'd cry about his legos being in the bath tub, after he threw them in. i mean, c'mon. obviously)

    1. Yeah the whole cause and effect thing escapes him...

  4. Thanks for reading guys!!! Maybe she'll follow in her Mama's footsteps to be a "real" writer.....or at least play at being one lol!!
