It’s finally begun!! Mr. LLW’s 4 day marathon of cleaning up the funkiness that is our front lot. Calm yourselves, fellow tree lovers, we’re not cutting down anything that isn’t dead. But there are like 30 downed trees out there – not to mention God knows what other nastiness. Between the danger of falling objects and my horrific reaction to any plant that begins with the word “poison” my original plans to run gleefully around our property every morning shouting “all this is mine!!” were quickly dashed – I’m sure the neighbors are devastated – and replaced with the sad fact that I still haven’t set foot in like half of our yard.
After running around with Mr. and Baby LLW to make final arrangements for the Bobcat and wood chipper deliveries – and to get Mr. LLW a cute little outfit at REI that would protect him from God knows what is living in this nasty old wood pile
I got Baby LLW settled in for a nap and tucked into my own personal woodsy adventure: s’mores ingredients, a skewer and a lighter. Yes, my friends, I was really roughing it.
15 minutes later I noticed that Baby LLW had started to fuss a little in his crib. I figured I’d give him a few minutes to fall back to sleep before checking in on him.
5 minutes after that the fussing had started to escalate. I polished off my s’more and tiptoed toward his room to see what was going on and…wait…what is that smell?
I switch on the light and…wait…WHY IS HE STANDING THERE NAKED?? WHAT’S THAT IN HIS HAIR?? And SERIOUSLY – WHAT IS THAT SMELL???
Guess who learned to take off his diaper and fingerpaint all in one day?
I’m seriously traumatized. Mr. LLW picked the right day to spend outdoors.
Pray we make it through the night without another incident.
Updates to come on our progress outside!!
