after i dropped the boys off at school this morning, i needed to run over to babies r us to get what will hopefully be the last big box of diapers for max for school. he was completely out, and i had a save $8 coupon for a box of 64 or greater. i got a box of 100. with a little luck, hopefully by the end of this box, he’ll be in pull-ups at the very least.
anyway, the babies r us is right next to a petsmart that happened to be having a dog adoption day. do you see where this is going? i won’t drag it out any longer—without further ado, i introduce the newest members of the allen family …
omg! i can’t believe what i just did. two pugs!! tripper and i have discussed when to get another dog—and we’d decided we’d get one when the boys asked. which they haven’t. but look at those faces! sure there is the whole max-is-terrified-of-dogs thing, but they are so small and so cute. and they’re surprisingly calm. and i thought, the best way to get over a fear of dogs is to get one, right? and then i thought each boy should have his own. and then i thought how much i miss having company during the day. and the next thing i knew, i was signing up, paying, and loading them up into the car. omg!
they are 5- and 6-years old, potty trained and from a family that was moving overseas that couldn’t take them along. their names right now are max and ruby, but since we already have a max, we’ll need to come up with something else. if we let the boys decide, they’ll end up being thomas and percy. so i think i should come up with the names and then introduce them as such when the boys get home.
