Maltese Madness!

This is what you’ll be seeing around my house in the future!   This isn’t our exact puppy, but what they look like at this age in general.   I finally succumbed, despite my selfish reservation of giving up some sleep for awhile-I’m very excited about my new baby.  His name is either Fenway or Murphy, we still haven’t decided.   B doesn’t know we are going to get him tomorrow-the night before she gets her spacers put in for her braces.  Maybe I’ll let her stay home all day Wednesday and bond with the puppy.  🙂  And with Mommy.  This weekend the kids did their own thing mostly, after church and brunch and I had all this alone time.  Hubby was working the office upstairs.  So I cooked, and cooked and cleaned…and realized, since I can’t have more human children, a little tiny puppy will be just the new buddy I need!  I always had three jobs and so much going on as a single mommy, that I’ve really started to feel “bored” as a new wife, even with a daughter, a stepson full time and all the house work.  I know it’s a shock.  We all hope for this, but then it’s so weird when it happens.  This is a change for me, I’ve always had big dogs, but that’s probably why I have a horrible back problem.  This puppy will remain pretty small-he’s a toy breed.  Also hypoallergenic, which will be good since Stepson is allergic to so much and has such respiratory issues.  Hubby is not a dog person like B and I are, but he is excited too!  More to come!  

B is still not falling asleep early like her old self, but I’m convinced it’s not anything bothering her, which some of you also thought it must be (as did I in the beginning, it made perfect sense).  I’m counting it as a phase and if it doesn’t settle back in soon, I’m going to take her to get it checked out.  Other than that, she’s great. And wonderful…and soooo cute.  I miss all that alone time with her, and I’m trying to find ways to get more of it.  Stepson is a more demanding child, and I think I’m getting resentful to hubby for not seeing how amazing B is.  Sometimes, I think he actually resents how good she is.
