Bravo !!!! This is exactly what I needed: a mini dose of witty sarcasm on the daily struggles of mommy/wifehood. Recently my husband and I have been bombarded with the same thing over and over "so, when are you two going to have a baby?" I don't know. We have our hands tied with taking care of two little dogs: a yorkie with environmental allergies who has the Napoleon Complex, because of wich she now has a cast on after trying to scare the neighbor's [3x larger than her] dog; and a hyperactive maltese/yorkie mix that constantly wants to play. Oh yeah, the yorkie "Coco" is not allowed to jump for [2 months] so no stairs; fortunately we live in a townhouse with infinite stairs, lucky us....
What I'm trying to say is, that it's comforting to see others with your outlooks, struggles, dreams, morals, etc. Thank you for pointing in the right direction.
