The Princess Reigns

Let me set the stage for you on last night's adventure. . . We're coming up on my bedtime when I notice the calendar says it's time for the princess to receive her flea and tick medicine. Okay, no biggie. I get it out of it's little box, grab a treat and some peanut butter and begin creating a concoction to hide the medicine. I give it to her then turn around to clean up assuming she ate it. You know that saying about "assuming"? Yea, well let's just say I shouldn't have assumed.

I look in the den and see a mound of PB stuck to the carpet. Lovely. The princess had eaten the entire treat and licked the PB around the medicine, then spit the medicine back out. No one said she wasn't smart. I tried putting more PB on it and giving it to her. She rolled it around in her mouth before spitting it out. I found David outside talking to a neighbor and told him I was done with her antics and it was his turn. He tried the commanding dad role and told her to eat it. She spit it right back out on the ground. He then tried shoving it down her throat, which she promptly spit back out.

By this point I'm laughing out loud. How is this four-legged creature besting two college graduates?? David is fuming at this point and stomping around the kitchen trying to get more PB to wrap it in before he hides it in her food. She eats ALL the way around the medicine, licks the PB, and still leaves it there. Y'all, I'm almost on the ground I'm laughing so hard. 

I give up and head upstairs for bed, and the princess follows me. David comes up to say goodnight, still in a tizzy. After laying down beside me for a few minutes he decides he's going to try wrapping it in leftover chicken. As you can guess, Daisy loved her chicken snack, but still didn't eat her medicine. She then decides she's probably pushed David's buttons enough and goes to hide in her "house". This is the same "house" that she refuses to go in on a near-daily basis when I leave for work in the morning. I guess she realized she was nearing the end of her luck!

So, who won the battle? Well, the medicine is on a paper towel on the kitchen counter and there are two humans hanging their heads this morning. I guess it's safe to say the princess still reigns;-)

5 on Friday [05.02]

Happy Friday!


 While Mother Nature may have hit us with some nasty stuff for a while, it has been beautiful these past two weeks! So thankful for this gorgeous weather and all the outside time it brings!

People keep asking me if I've had any crazy sort of cravings and the answer is: not really. At the beginning I could really only stomach sushi (not the raw kind!) then I loved strawberry applesauce (but, who doesn't?) and there hasn't really been anything else to stand out. It more comes that I have to have something right then and there and then the craving passes (hello, cream soda and orange creamsicles). Any other pregos have cravings?

 We have ants. I shudder even thinking about them again. We noticed them Wednesday evening while cooking supper and I went into immediate attack mode. We managed to kill all the ones we saw (thanks, Lysol spray!) and I got ant traps yesterday for any lingerers. Bleck!
 Um, how is it May already?? Not that I'm complaining because that's one month closer to baby, but still. Holy cow, this year has absolutely flown by!

Hellooooooo, fellow Starbucks fiends! Half-priced frappuccinos are back at Starbucks from 3pm-5pm until May 10. You're welcome.
