I am NOT saying a word....

about the white top and the good-almost-brand-new-worn-only-twice shorts.....



Since she took the initiative and went out there on her own to wash and blow dry Oreo (I found her washing him - she walked him outside, tied him up and proceeded to rinse him with no adult help).

I believe this is known as picking your battles but.....DANG is it hard to keep my mouth shut.

Oh well.....at least clothes will wash.

I like the name Oreo! Very fitting.

Yes Kris, it's definitely called picking and choosing our battles. She is so determined, how can you say anything, but "good job" and leave it at that. It always amazes me to read that she walked Orea....now if it was a dog I'd understand. Walking a cow...just seems different somehow.

The first thing I thought of when I read the first sentence was "pick your battles, pick your battles." Even though sometimes it's a killer to bite your tongue.

She does look cute though!
Have a great day.

She's just too cute, Kris! The outfit is adorable...especially with the rubber boots! :) Maybe too adorable for washing her Oreo, but I must confess I'm smiling. You're a good mom and that's why we can share and laugh here on your space!

Sunshine days!
