We are picking up Bert TONIGHT! We just couldn't wait :)
Me and Banana went to the pet store last night to pick up some things for Bert. In some crazy way, she was acting kind of quiet, like she had such fun playing with Bert and where did he go? (I tell myself this is what she is thinking so the worry-wart part of me doesn't think that she's sad that she won't be our only pup anymore!! Haha, moving on...!!)
As I was driving there and feeling so excited to pick out new things (a boy collar! what fun!), I passed Target, the mecca of pregnant women who also have a toddler in their cart, or families of 8 where the parents are 2 years older than me. And, with glee, I thought to myself, I am going to the pet store! Not Target!
And it dawned on me that I had never seen an obviously pregnant woman in the pet store in the many times I've gone there. Because really, who sends their pregnant wife to the pet store with their dog to pick up a 50lb bag of dog food or a new collar or some treats? Of course pregnant women love their pets, but I think they delegate that errand to their husbands. At least in my area they do.
So, add that revelation to the excitement I was already feeling for getting Bert and to the love in my heart when I look at Banana, and I practically floated into the pet store. Banana was sure to distract all the puppies from their training in the aisles, which she loved, but I know their owners did not appreciate!! Among all Bert's new things, I got them both new name tags and Banana an actual kong treat instead of those silly apples I'm always putting in there ;-)
And it was great that the total wasn't quite as much as I thought it'd be! And then I turned with Banana and our cart to head out the door, and guess who is walking in?
A PREGNANT LADY!!!
