A Puzzling Dream

10 Mar

I’m always seeing families on TV who claim they love to do puzzles together.  I would like to say that about our family.

“Oh, after a quiet family dinner we like to sit by the fire and do a puzzle together.”

I understand the G.W. Bush family rents puzzles to do together of an evening.  I saw it on Oprah.  You know, because puzzles are very expensive.

Well, guess what?  MY KIDS LIKE TO DO PUZZLES, TOO!

Trail of...puzzle pieces?

I think this is what might save me from that special room in hell for parents whose children watch every episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  Five times.

But one puzzle is enough, as you can see by the fact that William collapsed with exhaustion upon his completed masterpiece, leaving puzzle #2 forlornly in pieces.

I pity the fool who touches my puzzle!

Just to make sure his puzzle is safe during his nap, William gets Blue Puppy and a few cars to park themselves next to him.  You know, the muscle.

Perhaps the Bush family would like to rent the other one?  It’s not being used…

Just Like a Junior Associate…

I remember those nights as an assistant account executive, when I’d be nearly falling asleep at my computer in my cubicle, running on a dinner of buttered microwave popcorn.

You shouldn't sleep at your computer.

Mostly, I tried to make sure I remembered my pants, of course.  And I never stayed there all night.   Ten points to people who can find Blue Puppy in this picture.  Poor puppy.

...it's not ergonomically sound.

Also, of course, I always try to remember not to fall asleep on my farm animal puzzles, no matter how comfy they may seem.

But it’s good that William is such a hard worker, right?
