Madison wanted to remind everyone to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. She is having trouble understanding why she can’t play chase and wrestle with Bailie right now. In place of the wild games, she has taken to enjoying simple things.
Ever since she was a tiny puppy, Madison has enjoyed ripping small branches off the trees and bushes in the backyard. It seems to be fun for her to run around with them and sometimes, just gnaw on them.
Thankfully, she doesn’t eat them. It seems to make her feel happy chewing the as they are soft being just ripped off a living tree.
Madison has no control over many things in her life, like the situation with Bailie right now. A stick, however, is something she is able to control, and it is a lot of fun for her. I think it relieves her stress from not understanding what is going on with Bailie.
This stick does seem to comfort her somehow! Do you also enjoy the simple pleasures in life such as ripping a stick off a tree and chewing on it? My mom has so much stress right now between work and Bailie, she says she might actually be considering chewing on sticks!
