PSF - My "Babies"

This week has moved unusually slow for some reason. We had alot of fun and did alot of baking, but it feels like Friday should've come days ago... :) WARNING: This is gross, so stop reading now if you get grossed out by things easily!! Yesterday I had to take my dogs to the vet for baths, annual exams and grooming. Daisy (my older dog) does not travel well; she gets very nervous and usually shakes so hard that she can't stand....and on occasion, she gets so nervous that she poops. To be prepared for that, I laid a big towel down and tucked it into to the back of the seat (but the back rest was still visible). So, I got them in the car and we went about our way.......Eddie did fine, just drooled alot (i think he gets car sick); but Daisy, well let's just say it wasn't pretty. About halfway there I started to smell something........... that's right, she had a big poop, that luckily made it on the towel. Unfortunately, she still had it all over her butt, so when she sat against the back rest it smooshed all into my nice leather seats. Oh wait-- it gets "better". When we got to the vet and I had to get them out without making more of mess, they both stepped right.in.the.pile. Y-U-C-K!!! Needles to say, I had a nasty mess to clean up and had to leave all my windows open all day to make sure there was no leftover stinky smell. I swear, if it's not one mess, it's another that I am cleaning up!! (Are you still there....?)

Onto a much lighter and "cleaner" subject :); it's Photostory Friday. You should go over and check out all the stories...and even do one yourself!!!

These are my babies....and I really can call them my babies because well, Joseph is my youngest (baby) boy and Angie is my youngest (baby) child. So there---they can't make me stop calling them that!! They are so close and love each other sooo much. Angie copies everything Joseph says or does....and I mean everything. She follows him everywhere, plays with his toys, plays the same games he does and says all the things he says (or tries to anyway). Sometimes, if I'm trying to get her to do something, I just ask Joseph to come do it or to tell her how "good" it would be and then she'll come do it!! Of course, these sweet angels to have their moments, but for the most part they are so good to each other.
Last night, I was baking muffins and they both started calling for me, "Mommy, come here quick...look at this...get your camera". I turned around to see them cuddled up (the picture above), loving on each other!! Oh and BTW, that is pizza all over the faces..I promise, they aren;t normally that "messy".
Happy Friday.... I'm going to see The Black Crowes tonight....yippeee!!

Poor dogs! You should crate them in the car!

One of my cats foams (a lot) at the mouth when he's in the car. When we first got him I took him to the vet because I just KNEW he had rabies. The vet got a kick out of that one and didn't charge me.

Your kids will always be your babies...its our right to call them that because we are the mom!

Oh! Reason #498 why I have leather seats in my car... easier clean up!

as usual, the kidlets are adorable!

Aww they are sweet.
I feel you for the poop. Luckily our dog only does this once AT the vets though. She likes the car ride until we get to that road in which there is nowhere else we are obviously going but the vets. Then she lays down hoping we've forgotten about her. Poor things.

Very cute! And the dog story is hilarious -- especially when it is happening to someone else!

They're lovely kiddies... I still call my youngest my "baby", too. Have fun at Black Crowes!
