Of Avery and Mommy…
Did you ever hear the phrase “The risk is worth the reward”?
Saturday morning I got up at 6am with every intention of going to the grocery store…the one with the Starbucks in it…to get my shopping done for dinner. I was making a crockpot meal…hence the early morning trip. As I am tying my shoes I hear the very distinct sound of Avery coming out of her room and going into mine…looking for me. When she doesn’t find me (because I am trying to be stealth-like getting out of the house) she bellows from the top of the stairs MOMMY. Caught – red handed. Damn.
So I have to take her with me. And she wants to walk, not ride in the cart. So I use bribery. And it works. If she rides in the cart and doesn’t complain – she can get a donut from the bakery.
Which leads to my new catch-phrase “The mess is worth the reward” b/c she was AWESOME! Do I feel guilty? HELL NO.
Later I was having her color while I was trying to clean before company came.
Meet my new kitten, Avery.
Believe it or not – those are supposed to be whiskers.
How much longer before you think I end up on the Funny Farm?
