That is what my son told his first grade classmates and his teacher during share time three years ago.
Let’s take a moment to let that soak in.
It was a proud day at our house. Share time often is.
Okay, movin’ along…
Unfortunately, he was right.
No, they were not the illegal kind of drugs, but rather pills a doctor had given me to help me relax during a visit for a procedure.
I am a wimp.
After the procedure, my husband and I went shopping nearby. We stumbled into a pet store (which I would never visit sober). And there, in a pen, was the most adorable puppy in the world. He was an english bulldog and he melted my heart.
Apparently, I HAD to have him. I do not really remember much of this visit… But what was my husband’s excuse? Well, I think he is the one who couldn’t resist him. Could you?
We paid an exorbitant amount of money for him. I was shocked at how much when I recovered later. You know I would have haggled. But he was worth every penny. And, um, they told me he was a miniature bulldog. You decide…
I swear he grew overnight. His name is Ollie. He is my sweetest baby. He slobbers. He snorts. He drools. He farts. He snores. He is the most well behaved of us all!
Who is the fur baby in your life? Hopefully, you remember when you got him/her!
