I have a cute photo and a less cute story, so you can hear one and then be rewarded with the other. Also, Dogs > Babies.
You ready for the sound that I have heard in the background every time I talked to my sister on the phone for the past 3 days?
He just Will. Not. Stop. Crying. My sister went to a new mother support group yesterday, all set to vent, but everyone else had actual problems so she felt embarrassed to bring up a perfectly healthy (no fever or anything) baby who just keeps crying for no reason.
But I can vent to you all! Do you know how irritating it is to try to talk to your sister about the cute thing your dog did today, or the movie you just watched, when there is this horrible baby crying sound in the background? So irritating! People talk about how hard it is to be a new mother, but what about the forgotten sufferers, the siblings of new mothers who have to shout over baby sounds to pass on small stories of their day?
In happier quieter news, yesterday Albie Dog dressed up as “Al-Bee” to test out his new Halloween costume.
And then Albie Dog went into his new house for the first time to hide because I made him wear a Halloween costume.
To sum up, my dog is cute, send helpful good thoughts to my nephew to make him happier, and helpful good thoughts to my sister so she doesn’t lose her mind.
