My kids have gotten a little lazy and I am trying to reign it in. Now, I have a new motivation.
One child, who shall not be named, left a 24 count box of crayons in the floor of his closet and while I was out of the house, Puzzle the Puppy decided to eat them all.
It may be a surprise to some but crayons do not digest. I spent the rest of the afternoon on clean up duty, and Puzzle spent the afternoon with such a tummy ache that she could not even get comfortable to take a nap. Once, I even caught her reclining with her leg propped up under her to keep the pressure off her stomach. Hopefully, appropriate lessons have been learned by all.
