A few days ago, we got a step stool for the bathroom so Mazzy can reach the sink and she is over the moon excited about it. Now I have to add "getting Mazzy to stop brushing her teeth" as one more thing to power struggle over. Does it ever end?

Also. First thing, the next morning, I went into the kitchen to get Mazzy some milk and came back to my bedroom to find this:


Yes, somehow Mazzy deduced that if she took the step stool from the bathroom into our bedroom, she would have a better chance of being eaten by our television. I think this is all part of her master plan to beam herself into Sesame Street so she can attend Abby's Flying Fairy School. 

Today I've got a "Day in the Life" photo slideshow up on Babble. Unfortunately, "Mazzy On a Step Stool" was cut in favor of "Mazzy Eating a Slice of Bread On My Duvet". Are you intrigued????

The full title of my Babble post is "Day in the Life of a Freelancing Mom" and it's about how getting laid off after coming back from maternity leave ended up being the best thing that ever happened to me.

But before I send you away, I want to tell you one more thing…

I don't think I have ever been so proud.

Alright. Now you can go. 

Have a good weekend!
