The Wild Child came home from her Hawaiian vacation today and is settling back into living at home again. In fact, we had a bit of a mother/daughter bonding experience this evening. She brought me souvenirs from Hawaii . . .
And I took her to the grocery store to buy non-diet foods (something we don't have much of in this house!). Of course, I told her to make sure she keeps her snacks away from her dad, because he'll cheat every chance he gets! I think she's hidden cookies, crackers, and granola in her room. The other benefit? Maybe that darn mouse will be lured out of hiding and she can catch it!
(By the way, Sunday morning I stopped in the kitchen when I heard a rustling behind the china hutch and Hubby joined me but neither of us could see that mouse--still, at least now we know he's around! We hadn't heard or seen any sign of him for about a week.)
