happily ever after: Baby

Wednesday, September 17, 2008


It's come to my attention and begun to convict me that I baby my kids too much. I mean poor Dave I think has grounds to leave the nest early as I am clearly 'exasperating my children'. I'm starting to literally smother my whole family, so I've decided I need a new baby. And since we aren't on the same page with adopting yet, well, I think it's time to get a new puppy. I know, I said it, it's true, it's time. Because I want something I can baby talk to, I want something that WANTS to snuggle with me all the time, I want something that, well, is cuter and cuddlier than, say....this....

No I don't mean that we'd get rid of Winston. Precious hyper Winston. Cat nugget eating Winston. Rodent, bird, large bug eating Winston. How could we part with this guy????

Yes, because Dave would surely be mad at me for life, more than he is for wanting to squeeze his buns all the time.

This cutie-patootie, assures me that he will always be my baby, but I'm starting to have my doubts. Plus, I'm afraid I'm warping him for life. My grandmother's voice is haunting me, with her little lectures to me to stop calling him 'Baby'...she did that when he was two years old....what would she think of me now???? I mean the kid is 10 1/2 and has armpit hair and a mother that is constantly squeezing him. It's not good folks, I'm tellin' ya, it's not good.

So I've found these little treasures from the local shelter. I'm taking votes, please let me know which one looks like it could be my next baby.

This is Q-Tip, she's a Maltese, which I've always wanted. She only has that army crew cut because she was all matted down when they found her, which means that someday soon she'll look normal. One can only hope.

This is Sophie, she's a Shih-Tzu, (notice, Marcie, I spelled it correctly and didn't cuss) anyway, she's cute and would be a perfect cousin to my sister's dog of the same color and breed except that her teeth aren't protruding from her lower jaw. Not that I'm saying anything against my canine nephew, he's adorable.

This here would be Dunkin, he's a Lhapsa-Alpso, (I totally DIDN'T spell that one right). What's best about him is how darn cute his face is and that this is his sister....

and her name is....Doughnut. Get it? Dunkin Doughnut, as in my FAVORITE eating establishment EVER!? I think it's a sign. No, I'm not thinking about getting both, I just think they are too precious.

So cast your votes, soon, preferably before Sweetie gets home tomorrow. That would be great! Thanks!!
