Anyone in my family can attest that I am head over heels for our puppy Tikkanen aka Poopsie Hopsalot aka Grandmas Slippers (that's the sound he makes when he walks) but he is a for real World Champion rug muncher.
I know it sounds gratuitous but he really does love munching rugs.
You know how people go to work and talk about work stuff with work people? For stay at home moms it's hard to relate for a few reasons. Our hours are different (we work all of the hours) and our daily business doesn't always interest others. My husband works at a bank and he tries to care about my job as a SAHM but we just don't speak the same work language anymore. So I'm thinking about putting our updates in his vernacular. For example...
Him: How is today going?
Me: I'm long nonsense. And short gratitude. Analysts are saying feed them but I'm hedging with a few shares of Tic Tacs to buy me an hour. Overall the market is looking bull(shit)ish. How is everything with you?
We played kids Apples to Apples on Sunday and for once it brought out the best in our family. We discussed the difference between literal and ironic. We figured out who among us would choose "poop" when given the adjective "funny" while they had options like "clowns" and "funniness" (I am a straight up literal player and Lulu won all of my cards bc she played me like a fiddle.) I think the highlight was when Maisy was choosing for the word "sad" and she passed on Raggedy Ann because "She's just a ginger trying to make her way in the world."
