Sloth on a Shelf – Day 5

Sergio informed me that HE would be the one to put the star on the tree and no other. Because the STAR would light the way for Santa to find us. I assured him that with ALL the lights we now had throughout the house, there wasn’t a chance Santa could miss us. I dare say that if I opened … Read More

Sloth on a Shelf – Day 4

Apparently I do not have enough lights strewn through the house. I caught my little sloth scamp, Sergio, in the stairwell trying to untangle a huge strand of lights … 328 feet of lights to be exact. And while I say he was trying to untangle them, I think the only thing he was doing was tying himself up with … Read More

Sloth on a Shelf – Day 3

When I came downstairs this morning, I was greeted by the sight of Sergio standing at attention on my day job desk … all dressed up in his elf regalia. When I blinked twice … or maybe three times, he said, “Sergio, the sloth-elf ready to work.” I reminded him that as today was Saturday, I would not be working … Read More

Sloth on a Shelf – Day 2

Here we go, folks… Sergio saw an elf ornament in an ad so he ran outside and climbed up into the tree. He does enjoy hanging out in that tree. He even wanted to go out and climb it when it was raining… Anyway, Sergio told me he wants to help Luna adjust to being around people better. And he … Read More

Sloth on a Shelf – Day 1

As the holiday season rolls into December, all sorts of traditions come to light, whether based on religion or not. I love the holiday time … all the decorations and lights give me an extra spring in my step and joy in my heart. I celebrate Christmas, am a believer in the spirit of Santa Claus and the magic of … Read More

Riding the Rail

These days I never know what Sergio is going to get up to. Imagine my surprise when I hear him yelling, “Wheeeee!” and I hurry out on the landing to find him sliding down the banister in slow motion, as only a pygmy three-toed sloth can, while Luna anxiously rocked on the landing waiting for him to arrive. Once he … Read More

Turkey Sloth?

Being someone who loves to decorate, Thanksgiving has always been the little snack between Halloween and Christmas as holidays go. And I truly enjoy the reflective nature of this holiday. I’ll be candid — I’m not celebrating the Pilgrims and Indians sitting down in harmony celebrating survival of a rough winter. Instead I choose to celebrate this as an annual … Read More

Hanging Around

Sergio is on a quest to calm Luna down about his ability to climb trees. For the past couple days they’ve been hanging from the porch rail to give Luna a chance to get used to clinging to a wooden object. Today Sergio decided he should show Luna how safe it was for him to cling to the tree just … Read More

First Steps

Luna started having meltdowns and I was clueless as to what the problem was until Sergio helped out. Apparently she has developed a fear that because Sergio can climb trees and she’s afraid of heights that she won’t be able to go on any adventures with him. As usual when it comes to Luna, it is Sergio to the rescue. … Read More

The Idea Whisperer

When I brought Sergio upstairs to my writing office the day he arrived, he immediately claimed the spot on the corner of my laptop as his place. From the moment he has been there, he has been whispering ideas to me. Let’s just say I will not be lacking for story fodder for The Adventures of Sergio and Luna. His … Read More

The Unintentional Selfie

I need to carry my phone with me when I leave the room. Sergio gets curious about everything and today I noticed my phone had been moved after going to the kitchen to get some more tea. Sure enough, what do I find? A close up of Sergio. 😀 I asked him about it and he said he was trying … Read More

Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

With Halloween upon us in a few short days, Sergio has become quite agitated about not having been to the pumpkin patch. He has been consuming Halloween lore and has decided that his holiday will be incomplete without the chance to commune with the great fruit of the season and getting to know everything he can about pumpkins. Sooooo … … Read More
