I have much to blab blog about but no time at the moment. Maybe I can get some good writing (*snort*) done this weekend.

Katie’s play is tonight and we’re all excited. She doesn’t have a ton of lines, but plenty for her very first play.

Sookie continues to pull me in as I kick and scream, “I don’t want a dog!” I keep thinking of how I can’t do this and I can’t do that. But my perspective is starting to change a bit. Beside the fact she’s the most adorable creature and a pretty good girl are the perks I’m getting.

I got a Bissel hand held steam cleaner (I think you can figure that one out) and a long-desired food processor (I’ve been having to make her food while she’s taking the medicine for the parasite). I also see hardwood floors beyond just the entryway in my future.

I noticed yesterday at preschool that the kids act just like she does. So I figure her “human” years to be somewhere between two and three. I kept finding myself clapping at the kids like I do her when she’s doing something she’s not supposed to do.

So I’ll leave you with more Sookie pictures. I’m pretty sure the novelty will eventually wear off and I’ll find something else to post. But here she is for now.

This is her ignoring me because she’s curled up in a chair she knows she’s not supposed to be in. Like if she doesn’t look at me I won’t see her or something.

And here’s a nice portrait:

And a head shot:

    Oh, I could eat her up. Her ears look deliciously soft and fun!!We have realized that training Addie is much like behavior modification for autistic kids. There’s even a book written about the connection-I can’t remember the title, but you get the idea. Many of the principles are VERY similar.PS-cleaning runny bottom and pee is not much more fun on hard wood floors . . .

    Aw I am thinking about getting a puppy for Baby J and I since the hubby took the dogs… only thing is… the last handvac is almost worn out from the last time we got a puppy so I might need to get a new one! LOL That is the only part I don’t like potty training. I am totally inept at house training dogs… however kids I seem to have no problem with so that is good! LOL

    Being a puppy momma is a lot of work and the joy is no different than being a baby momma…love your snapshot moments!!How was the play? How did Katie enjoy it?

    ‘Sookie continues to pull me in as I kick and scream, “I don’t want a dog!”‘You and I are in the same boat! I have been saying no to a dog for quite some time. Now Chester and I are best friends. I told Little Bit how proud I was of her for being so responsible in all areas of late and that I thought it was b/c of getting a dog. I told her that if I had known that was all it was going to take I would’ve agreed to a dog a lot sooner. Then she said something I thought very insightful: “But Mommy, if we had gotten a dog sooner, we wouldn’t have gotten Chester!” Okay, I’m in my place now. 😉

  16. Tanya on April 6, 2008 at 12:02 am

    If you do change your mind about her, I think she is really cute and I really like puppies.;)

    I’m not holding my breath for the novelty to wear off! LOL! They have a way of simply growing into a bigger and more delicious “disease” of your heart! And with that face … you do not stand a chance, my dear!!
