An Update on Comang

Four months ago, J and I made the difficult decision to give away Comang. If you can recall, I had found a very nice family to take him in and give him a loving home. I am happy to say that they have continued to send me updates and pictures, and still thank us profusely […]

Goodbye, Comang

This is one of the most difficult posts I have ever written… 🙁 After much consideration and thought, we have decided to give away Comang, our beloved shih-tzu. When I first became pregnant with Claire, I swore to myself that I would never become “one of those people” that give away their dogs after having […]

Sharing is Caring

My cousin told me that when her daughter first entered preschool, and her teachers were attempting to teach her the concept of “sharing is caring,” she began to use it for her own advantage. In other words, whenever she saw another child playing with a toy she liked, she would march on over, tell the […]

Sleeping Dog

I guess today is a doggy post day! I have to say that I completely sympathize with the dog’s owner…and I’m sure I will empathize even more after BebeDeux is born. (Comang feels the same way too. When Claire is being especially loud or obnoxious, he will let out a big sigh and go into our room […]

Business Trip

No, not for me. I wish I could go on a business trip. I was only sent on 1-2 trips per year when I worked, so I actually quite enjoyed them and would LOVE to go on any sort of trip right now. The business trip is for J, who will be shipped off to Silicon Valley […]

First Child Syndrome

Lately I have been losing my patience with Comang. So much so, that the thought of giving him away has entered my mind on more than a few occasions.  🙁 Our beloved shih-tzu has a classic case of first child syndrome. He is insanely jealous of the attention that Claire receives and is adding undue […]

Claire Learns to Wave Bye

J and I took Claire to visit some friends over the weekend, and when we were all saying our respective goodbyes, Claire started waving bye too! Immediately J and I looked at each other with raised eyebrows. We hadn’t been trying to teach her how to wave, so we thought it might just be some […]
