"Mommy, I'm being a big girl and doing my chores without you even asking! Do you need anything else done?"

"Can I have my allowance now?"

Oh Jean...THAT IS ADORABLE! Libby use to do the very same thing. I love how helpful our girls are ;)

You left a question about the snowballs in the fur. Libby has ALWAYS been a lover of snow and when she was just a wee lass she would get the biggest snowballs in her fur. To get rid of them we would do several things. First we would gently break them up and then try to dry her off with a warm towel (just out of the dryer). If they were just too big into the sink she went for a lovely "spa treatment". Some how she just didn't really enjoy her "spa treatments" Ha! Libby's favorite way to get rid of those sticky snowballs was to race through the house at full force, leaving a trail behind her. Those where the days! Now, she is just getting to old and while she enjoys the snow she doesn't love to play in it as much. Hope that helps.

So sweet. The Bug has not tried that so far, but she is usually at my feet when I am filling the dishwasher hoping I may drop some bit of something... And there is not getting the snowballs off of her. She takes off when she gets in the door and runs and scoots before we can catch her.
