So I'm a big sister again...


Last week my mother called to tell me I have a new little sister. Yup, my mother who has never been fond of animals, got a dog. A little white, hair ball with feet. It must be some empty nest, pre menopausal thing she is going through. For years she complained about my dog...now I gotta little bitch to compete with, my mom has a new baby!

JC was called upon to name her, because my mom couldn't think of a name for her ahead of time...mind you my sister didn't have a name for weeks! She was "baby" for quite some time until they finally named her Mary Beth. Seriously, my mom can't make decisions. You should see her order food, she treats it as a HUGE, major life altering occasion sometimes. Anyways, that's a whole story in itself. After weeks of looking at dogs, she finally got one, but no name. I threw out Sophia to JC and he told her Sophie. Finally, with three heads together...Here is my new "sister" Sophia Maria.


So before JC and I went to go meet her today, we stopped to get some "welcome baby"gifts. Miss Sophie got a ring chew toy, a pearl necklace collar, a pink and pearl collar, a purse chew toy, a dress and finally a fitting item to be one of the girls in our family. Her very own plush wine bottle toy!


Like the good big sister that I am, I had to play with her and dress her up purse and all. Too bad there weren't any puppy heels to match! Poor Sophia, we need a girl in the family. Until then, we get to dress up the new sister.

Lil' Miss Sophia Maria

How cute..looks like a snowball. Would you believe, I have a grand-daughter dog named Sophia? Great name...She is an italian greyhound and spends a lot of time at my house. When my son mentions Mimi or Grampa, she goes crazy and runs to the door, thinking she's coming over to run with our Doxie dogs. Sophia has her own basket of toys for when she comes over...she loves her furry Barbie purse that squeeks...

Can you believe mom got a dog? Who is this woman? You are totally right about her being a decision-phobe too, that's why she always orders what we do. If she wasn't our mother it might be annoying. She comes to stay with us in 2 weeks, should I be nervous...?

Yep be nervous...

No, not really. She just left my house a little bit ago. Gotta love it when mom comes, something gets cleaned.

I should have her come over tomorrow too!

Dishes might get done!
