Of Child Labor, The Law, And Livy

Olivia turned 4 months old yesterday, which means that both Mom & Dad believe it's high-time she get up off her diapered bumm, go out and get a job. Enough hanging at the pool; enough looking all cute and hanging out with her friends. Enough already. Go get a job! She could feel it coming so wasn't all that surprised. Dad is a member of the Harford County Sheriff's Department in Maryland. He has an in; Livy took it.

The uniforms are a bit too big, so while they're being altered, they out-fitted her with the easily-recognizable-from-the-rear-view-mirror-oh-damn-I'm-so-gonna-get-a-speeding-ticket, Stetson. Livy loves it. You can tell she thinks she looks good. Stylin'! (Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, err, hat.)

And, talk about pimp my ride! Sweet!! A cup holder for a ginormous cuppa milk. It's important to stay hydrated while you're working the beat. Note to self: make sure you know where all the good spots are for a quick and safe diaper change...

Officer Olivia's ride even comes with her very own laptop right there. All the better to easily read her favorite blog, Your Mother Knows...but only on her break. She's not one to squander county resources. Or if she's pulled you over, she can check your records to see if you are a lover of Sponge Bob as she is, then she might let you off with a warning. Maybe...

She's having a bit of an issue that the GPS system in this new-fangled cruiser of hers, requires her to still use archaic forms of mapping. What the heck is up with that? Helloooo! It's 2009 for heaven's sake! And if that weren't enough, now the perp in the back seat seems to have become a bit grabby which she'll have to put a stop to immediately, "Sit back, shut up, and don't make me come back there and put the cuffs back on you, Ma'am."

It's hard having a job at only 4 months, but hey, if anyone in the Gonzalez house can do it successfully, it's Livy. She's already warned Georgie, her dog, "Watch out, I heard them talking. You're probably next! I think the K-9 squad is hiring."

Still, at the end of a long hard day dealing with the bad guys and keeping the world safe, there's absolutely nothing better than...

...Changing into comfy clothes and spending some quality time on the sofa just sitting back and being all admired and stuff.

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly aka Great Aunt Holly

Livvy can come arrest me ANY TIME as long as she shares the cell with me, and so long as my jailbird suit looks like her awesome red jammies (with FEET).

Thanks for the heads up - if you see a silver Subaru with VT plates speeding through Marlyand, know that there will be a Spongebob strapped in the passenger seat.
