Where Did It Go?

It occurred to me this weekend that Christmas is the ultimate parenting analogy.  There’s all the excitement, the bustling about and the anticipation.  And then the big day comes and no matter what you think, you’re never quite prepared.  You wake up at an ungodly hour, you’re tired, your hair is a mess, and there’s a rush and a lot of noise and excitement and hustle bustle and then…


The stockings were hung...



the house is empty and quiet and you wonder how it all went by so fast.

    Where is Harley’s stocking?

      The slobbering beast actually did get a stocking, filled with oversized orange tennis balls, a squeaky toy, and a very fragrant bone. We had to take it down because apparently it still smells like the bone a week after christmas and he keeps pulling it down to ‘check’ it!
