My brother just returned from a long trip abroad, which means his dog, Yoshi, has gone back home. Yoshi really missed Kyle while he was gone, but he and Schuyler have become a tight little pair. After Yoshi left, Schuyler sat by the front door for a while, waiting for him to come back, which was so sad. She snapped out of it when I showed her that she no longer had to fight for toys – everything was hers again! Still, I’ll occasionally catch her looking at me like, “Um, where’s Yoshi?”

(And I know you’re going to tell me to get another dog, but considering how often my brother has to travel it already feels like we have two!)

Ham Fans

My friend’s daughter is a huge Hamilton the Musical fan, so I got her a bunch of cool Hamilton things for her birthday.

~I want this Hamilton historical coloring book for myself. So nerdy, so fun.
~I also want to put this Hamilton pin on a jacket.
~Annie really wants this poster for her new “Broadway” bedroom.

On Your TV

We were invited to a sneak peek of a new movie theater for kids last week (it has a giant playground inside the auditorium), and Annabel and I ended up being interviewed by a news station about it. I was NOT expecting that to happen, and I’m just glad I actually took the time to brush my hair before we left, LOL. I also wrote about it here. I have to say that I think the theater has a lot of potential – potential to be fun, and potential to be a DISASTER. We enjoyed ourselves, but I can see movies in that theater either being a great experience or an awful one, with absolutely no middle ground.

Happy Sunday, everyone!
