If you're current with reading my blog you know that last week I talked about family size. Evie's two and a half now so the question on many people's minds is "when are you having your next one?" Long story short, we thought back in May we were ready and fast forward to today, not so much. We decided to push the decision back six months or longer because obviously the time is not right.
So you'd think that would mean we're keeping our family size down to three for the time being. I wish I could say we're that smart. No, see...I'm a pushover.
A few years ago, Michael and I bought our first dog together. We had her for a couple of years, but when Evie was about a year old, we had to give her up because between a toddler, me in school and Michael working it was just too much. I put my foot down and said no more animals until we're done with babies and our kids are in school.
When we moved to Kansas, we decided to get Evie a "pet" as a gift for all the craziness we were throwing at her with the big move. We've had gerbils, a turtle and ferrets in past years and we knew none of those were coming into our house again.
We bought her a fish which Evie aptly named Baby Red Fish. Seeing as it's well, red. We got her this fish
so that we wouldn't buy her this
Guess how many pets Evie now owns? Ding ding ding. If you guessed two, you would be correct.
Sleeping in the corner of the living room underneath the Papasan chair at this exact moment is our seven week old Siberian husky female, Roxy. She's cute as could be and super cuddly. I'll try to remember those things when she sheds an entire fur coat all over my currently immaculate floors and tries to dig a hole out of my backyard.
I'm a pushover, what can I say? But at least she's cute.
