We've got personality...personality....


Dear Nick,

You are too freaking adorable. I could watch you on the puppycam all day long if I didn't have an actual job to do.

But do me a favor, please? Stop chewing on your brother's head.

And also, if you could find a way to sleep without displaying your junk to the world, that would be lovely. Modesty is highly underrated.

Love,
Your Hooman Mom

I finally got my application faux pas worked out and just spent the last hour filling out an online personality evaluation.

It's amazing how many times and how many different ways they can ask you if stealing is wrong. Or if you like people. Or if you can accept being told what to do with no recourse.

What I probably *should* say? Hello, I really would like this job. I'm a team player that never hesitates to pitch in whenever and wherever needed, I work quickly and enjoy repetitive tasks.

What I *want* to say? Yo, Holmes. Give me this damn job, preferably at what I'm already making and if possible, close to the building with the Starbucks in it. Oh, and I don't really like to work all that hard, so if you can keep it easy on the workload, m'kay?

Oh Builder MaMa....

Based on your note to Nick and Janet's assessment of his personality, I'm afraid he may have more than a little bit of his Great Grandpa in him. Tighten your seatbelt and keep your hands and feet inside the vehicle at all times....

Big Nick is adorable and BIG! JF wasn't nearly as big at that age (I don't think). He was 11 lbs. and change at 13 weeks (when we got him).

We love your new puppy. It's be fun to watch him grow and read about his antics.

He is a character. His favorite game the last couple of days seems to be "I am the man with the big stick." He likes to find the biggest stick in the yard and walk around and tease the others with it. He will be missed greatly here.
