The Mystery Of Sherlock's Missing Mom

My April Fool's resolution is to have a consistent schedule with blog posts. I don't know that April Fools resolutions are any less likely to happen than New Years resolutions so why not?

In the meantime here is little highlight reel to catch you up on my life this week. Cause lord knows you need that.

First Reid was almost murdered because of auto correct while we were discussing our upcoming move to Madrid:
He quickly assured me it was auto correct and I quickly assured him I never wanted to hear "big" and "SG" used together again. Now that I think about it I should have put a ban on the use of "walkies" too.

Speaking of death... Our pup Sherlock has come up with a very subtle way of letting us know he thinks he needs more food. He "dies" by his food bowl. It's pretty heartbreaking the poor neglected little thing. As you can see from his large pot belly we are clearly not feeding him enough.
Speaking of neglect... I have been very engrossed in a cool easter craft project (which I will do a post about) but apparently all this concentration on crafting has made me a bad mommy. Yesterday I looked up to discover this:
And less than 1 minute after untangling him from the miles of bakers twine he walked out on the balcony and came prancing back in carrying my new lantern in his mouth!
I'm sure my stopping instantly to photograph these naughty escapades taught him a lesson.

And finally here is a sneak peek of the Easter craft project that has been the cause my very poor parenting:
I made these eggs using inkjet water slide decal paper. In my next post I will put up photos of all the eggs I've made as well as a step by step DIY tutorial I'm working on so you can make some too! Please keep your fingers crossed that poor neglected little Sherlock will survive til then!
