I encouraged this dream myself.
I’ve been talking to Tony about wanting to get a puppy a lot for the past, like, month. Yesterday when we were walking around the mall, I was telling him that the humane society has adorable puppies to adopt.
Yesterday at work, I was talking to my co-worker about babies. We said that we don’t want to rush into having them, but we feel like we’re going to be too old before we start popping them out.
Tony and I adopted a puppy. He was light tan with a dark brown ring around his left eye. He fit comfortably in my hands when I cupped them together. Our puppy was tiny and adorable and I loved him to death!
All of a sudden, Tony and I had a baby. I was so happy but overwhelmed that I now had a baby human and a baby dog to tend to and care for.
Tony and I were at the grocery store with our baby and our puppy. I was pushing the shopping cart with one hand and holding the puppy with the other, all while the baby was lying in the baby seat of the cart.
Tony wandered off to get what I thought to be unnecessary groceries.
The puppy jumped out of my arm and ran around to the other aisle. Leaving the baby alone in the shopping cart, I ran after the puppy. I realized that I left the baby alone but figured he would be fine for a few minutes (yeah, I’m a great dream-mommy).
I found the puppy. He was playing with other shoppers. I crouched down to pet him with the others.
Tony came walking toward me. My initial thought was that he was going to be incredibly angry that I left our baby by himself in the other aisle. Surprisingly, he didn’t seem to mind either.
Moral of the story: Puppys are a better choice for Meg and Tony right now. I’m sure all will agree.
