like mamas who stuff lollipops in their purse before church, we know all the right bribes to make pablo stay quiet. our go-to incentive is a little treat filled with peanut butter. perfect for those nights when we want to watch modern family, work on homework, or just hang out without a pup on our laps, begging to play.
the only problem is, he looks so darn cute afterward. so cute that i turn off the television, shut the laptop and invite him into my arms.
and shows get missed. homework piles up and alone time isn't so alone anymore. but one look into those chestnut brown eyes and suddenly it doesn't quite matter as much as it used to.
