I dunno. She can’t get enough of them. If the cat doesn’t finish her treats, Alice will sneak behind and eat them for her. Whenever she grabs the bag, she expects to get them as her snack. I don’t give them to her. I know the packaging is colorful and has “Seuss” on them (Seuss is out cat) but I do not intentionally feed my child soft salmon kitty treats.
Of course, now we’re dealing with the fact that Seuss is older. She’s 16 and has a tumor in her face. The vet says that she probably has anywhere from a couple of weeks to a couple of months left. We’re enjoying the time that we have. But I think it’s going to be hardest when Alice is wandering around the house looking for Seuss after Seuss is no longer there. Seuss didn’t really like Alice at first. Now that they’ve finally developed a friendly relationship, I have to think about what we’re going to do shortly when Seuss is gone.
We’ve decided that we won’t get a new pet right away. We’ll wait until Alice can pick her own pet and help with some of the responsibilities, like playing with the pet and feeding the pet. Maybe we’ll get an interim fish. Or a hermit crab. I’ve always wanted a hermit crab.
I dunno. I’m rambly today.

I have the best husband. (I'm sure your significant other is fabulous too, but this isn't about your anniversary, it's about mine.) Wayne took Alice and me out to a mini donut shop in Maine for breakfast called Wicked Mini Donuts and they were seriously wicked...read more
A lot of people have asked me if Wayne and I are financially okay after reading this comic on GeekMom. They're very concerned friends and family members and I love them all so much (I love YOU all so much). The short answer is, yes. We'll be okay. We're paying...read more
Alice has 8 teeth. She’s currently cutting another 3 or 4. Naps are short. Bedtime is a minefield of tears and laughter. All day long it’s the same song; pained and tired whining of a little girl who only wants to play with Mum’s hot coffee and very important iPad,...read more
I am gifted with comic ideas every day. Most of the time, I am able to write them down in detail. This lets me revisit the idea weeks, or even months into the future long after the moment has passed. And other times, when I’m half asleep and need to go to bed, I do...read more
I’ve never loved my job in the way that I love this one. My first job was at a game store. I played, recommended, and sold board and card games for 10 years. I was good at it too. By the time I left, I was training new employees and running a small business as if it...read more
