Missing My First Baby

Despite my protests, I became outnumbered by J and my parents. According to J, he does not have the energy to take care of me, the baby, and a dog. According to my parents, a dog will only bring added stress to our new life as parents.

As a result, Comang has been staying at my parents’ since Claire’s birth and will stay there for at least another few weeks. My sister is back in NY for the year, so Comang has a friend — my sister’s dog Dante — to keep him company. I know that he is probably happier there than in our cramped apartment with a new baby and J’s parents visiting daily (they do not like dogs much). But the fact remains that he was our first baby, and I really really miss him.

Seeing this photo in my Google Reader just now set me off:

I proceeded to go through pictures of Comang in my computer and had a good, long cry.

The other day I asked J if he missed Comang and he replied, “Eh…” I know that the indifferent response was more likely due to stress and fatigue than his actual affection for the dog, but I wanted to punch my husband all the same for seeming so heartless.

I really miss ya, buddy. Please don’t forget about me and I can’t wait to see you again.

  1. My Loki looks just like your Comang except without the nicely groomed hair. (my loki gets the cheap-o $20 hair cut in flushing). If you ever need a dog sitter, Loki & I are available! Please do let me know if there is any way I can help!

  2. I'm going to speak out, but even my mom couldn't pull our fur babes away from us. I hope you're able to bring him home soon!

    Like yours, my ILs dislike my cat..Jin would have had the same reaction if i asked him about Sebastian but like you said he is and always will be me first baby..I have been his Mommy for 11 years and i would bite off the hand of anyone who tried to take him away..lol..I say bring the dog home! It may help lift your spirits! When i was really stressed or tired a good snuggle with S always made me feel better!

  4. In all honesty, it wouldn't be "home" without our Memphis around. Having her there made things more normal in the weeks after Baby M was home. AND… it gave me someone to talk to about the things that were going on during the day. Whenever we're home and Memphis isn't there (like pre or post vacation), something just seems weird and odd.
    I'd fight for him to be home sooner than later.
