When school takes away your older siblings and leaves you with nobody but the dog a nap is definitely in order.
I think it has the potential to be a long year for Ollie:
Yesterday he came home from the store with new shoes and walked into the house calling out "Diezel! Gibby! See what I got!" The only "guys" to come running were the two gal dogs and they were thrilled to find a new pair of shoes to chew on.
Today I finished up on the computer and turned around to find 3 cheese sticks on the table, each in a different spot. When I asked Ollie who the cheese sticks were for he said, "Senna, Diezel and Gibby." Sadly it was only morning so I put the cheese sticks back into the refrigerator only to find them placed back on the table two more times within that hour.
I'm not too worried though, soon he'll start his music class and possibly a play group that meets on Fridays. Not to mention I plan to get off my rear-end soon to paint the living room, I'm sure he'll be tons of help. Plus, he has the added benefit of being the only child here to lick the beater after I'm done mixing any possible combination of ingredients for a horribly good (for you) baked something or other. You can't beat that!
