Temperatures have been in the 90s here in Pittsburgh lately, so Sadie and I took a dip in our neighbor’s pool yesterday.
We have been very blessed with wonderful neighbors. They help us with Malcolm when we go out of town, let us go swimming in their pool, and have become cherished friends to us over the past six years.
Swimming with Sadie totally had me missing swimming on the swim team. I swam competitively from middle school through a bit of college, was a lifeguard, and taught swim lessons. It’s funny, though, that I don’t feel like I can teach Sadie to swim and would rather sign her up for lessons?!
Have I ever mentioned that Niva has a major sweet tooth? She has consumed sticks of butter, bags of chocolate chips, dozens of cookies, and last night she had a new first…
Yup, she ate a box of brownie mix in the middle of the night. That was a fun time at 2:00 am with Jimmy, cleaning up brownie mix and watching Niva have a major case of the zoomies from all the sugar.
Today will be spent mopping the floors and deep cleaning the puke off our couch. And wishing I had those brownies, because man do they look good!
Just the other day I had to laugh because we had cookies cooling in our bedroom with the door shut because we can’t cool them in our kitchen. Nowhere (including on top of the refrigerator) is safe from our Cookie Monster husky!
While I was at the grocery store buying the aforementioned brownie mix, Jimmy was home with Sadie when she woke up from a late nap. I checked on her on our baby monitor and found the scene below.
I think Sadie thought that was the coolest way to wake up from a nap 🙂
