a day in the life of Marley.

When I wake up I like to play in my bed for a little while before I demand my milk. This way mama and papa get to sleep a bit longer. I'm just a good son like that, ya know. Once I'm up and fed, I usually potter about and help mama do her chores.

Chores get boring pretty quickly though, so while she bakes, I like to play in my Jolly Jumper. When I get sick of that I like to adventure off to partake in top-secret mischievous things. Mum usually catches me before I can accomplish my missions, but because I'm so tenacious, I keep on trying.

After my morning nap we have some morning tea. Mum eats pretty much everything she just baked, while I settle for much healthier things like my favourite organic apple rice crackers which are really expensive apparently. But I don't even know what that means, so I just eat them anyway.

In the afternoon mama usually takes me for a walk. Today the weather was unpredictable so we just played outside instead, even though the silly lawnmower man hasn't mown our lawns in like forever. I ate some flowers while mum wasn't looking, but don't tell her okay promise.

In the evening we have dinner, then I have a splash in the bath. I like to feed myself so I usually get little finger foods. Mum eats a pile of healthy things, which I don't understand because earlier today she ate all that baking. Weird.

Then once I've had my bottle and brushed my teeth, we read a story. My favourite are those silly Dr Suess ones - that guy is hilarious! Then mama tucks me in, gives me a big kiss and I fall asleep to dream big dreams. It's just like that Suess man says in my book:
"Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one"

Mama's note: This little guy is 8 months old today! Yay!

This is the best blog post ever!! My favorite is how "mom" eats baking in the afternoon, and healthy in the evenings. "wierd!" So adorable - made me laugh out loud.
