Lest You Think I Exaggerate...

it's 10pm,
in merlotmom's house,
not a creature is stirring,
not even a mouse...

...who the hell am I kidding?!

And while I was absorbed in posting this, Peanut was quietly resting at my feet absorbed in a project of her very own...chewing on a dirty tampon. (I'm sparing you a video of it - you can thank me later.)

I wish I could say this was unusual... anyone wanna join me in a glass of wine?

It looks like wild kingdom!

Thank goodness you showed a close up of the item that the dogs were playing with because I thought it was a dirty diaper.

OMG, the dog and the tampon! One of my favorite stories. Before we purchased a step-on covered bathroom garbage we would hear things like...

"hey, is that a mouse the dog is swatting around?"

AMomTwoBoys said...

I do! I do! But can we wait til tonight? Cause even I don't want a glass of wine at 7:51 in the morning.

We had a black lab years ago that would break into the diaper genie if we forgot to close the bedroom door. Tampons and pads....been there, done that, too. Blech.

Yes on the glass of wine...is it time?

I second Connie's comment - I too thought it was a dirty diaper!

Hope your day is peaceful...

Manic Mommy said...

Yup. Been there. WTF? Just got back from my sister's, where her yellow lab was licking up a used tissue. Blech.

And we thought parenthood was gross.

I'm out of wine - but I've got gin!

I liked watching the dogs and kid playing. Right now I have the dog and cat chasing each other around our living room. It's all fun till the cat gets pissed.

Dogs and kids and late nights...when does a mom get a break?

dkuroiwa said...

yeah...i thought it was a diaper too...thanks for sparing us the tampon picture, I mean, who hasn't already had a small child or animal drag one out of the trash of their own!?!?! :-d
Wine? but of course I'd like to join you...but, the hub and i started drinking rum and cokes about 10 minutes ago...I'll wine with you tomorrow! okay? okay.

...and when you say "dirty tampon", you mean because it had dirt on it, right?

Forget wine. I recommend mainlining Valium. I'm a bit late, but it can't hurt.

Wifey said...

Wow. Looks like my house. Thank God I'm not alone. Smiles.

Magpie said...

Hey, it's a stuffed animal, that's not so bad! I thought it was a dirty diaper.
