Back to the beginning

Tomorrow we are going to meet our new puppy, name TBD. Or at least that’s the plan. That means just one more day of a puppy-free life. There’s a lot that’s nice about living puppy-free. For example, generally speaking, no one in our home just randomly throws up on the carpet. Also, no one has to be carried outside to pee in sub-zero temperatures at midnight. No one needs to be walked and no one barks at the mailman. But, there’s a lot that I’ve missed in the months we’ve been puppy-free. I’ve missed snuggling with a fur ball, I’ve missed watching Molly play with a dog and I’ve missed being greeted with four paws and a wagging tail. It’s going to be a lot of work, and there’s no way we’re going to get lucky enough to have another Gracie in our lives, but I think it’ll be really great and I’m so excited.

    You’re correct, it won’t be Gracie, but you’ll be amazed at how quickly your new baby will become an equally treasured member of the family with her own unique characteristics that will make her every bit as wonderful as Gracie.

    That being said, the puppy shit ( and I do mean shit) gets old really fast. Chloe at 1 year, 5 months decided to try out one of my shoes this morning. There is a reason why she’s known as “Devil Dog” and lucky for her she is cute and loving and has stolen my heart.

    I met two new dogs yesterday – the sweetest 5 year old Golden Retriever and a nine month old I don’t know what. It made me kinda wish we were getting a 5 year old. That said, I always wondered what little puppy baby Gracie was like and I’m excited to now be able to experience knowing our family pup from when she was itty bitty.

This photo doesn’t wholly capture how annoying it was to put up with this medicine cabinet for four years. It infringed on the already tiny amount of space we had in our en-suite bath. So, on Friday, something amazing happened. #recessthatcabinet #brassisback #allthingsbrass #potterybarn #bathroomupgrade #happyinteriors

There was a day when she learned to #dab and she didn’t tell me. And she just pulled it out at some friends’ house one night, like it was the most natural thing. And while I couldn’t stop laughing, I realized I was witnessing another example of what will be only more big steps away from me and the life I thought the three of us had together. And I know that is beautiful and how it should be. But catching myself, watching that moment, finding it in a photograph? It takes my breath away at how fleeting and transient and amazing this all is. Molly, you are my #everything. I’m better because of you. Being your mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me. By far. And I lived in Italy! #parenting #whyivoteblue #fallinwisconsin #moments #passageoftime #itgoestoofast
