I'm a Mom!!!

My husband and I have always had the motto, "No Children, No Pets, No Indoor Plants", so it was with great surprise that I found myself contemplating motherhood and that my husband agreed. And so, at the advanced age of 60, I unexpectedly became a first-time mom. No, I'm not the recipient of some advanced medical techniques - I adopted. Her name is Megan and she's a beautiful little 5-year-old girl with a cheerful disposition and gorgeous brown eyes. She's energetic, loving, cuddly, and reasonably obedient, and my husband and I have fallen totally in love with her. Our hearts just melt when she jumps on our laps or gets wiggly all over with excitement.

As you can see, she's a Miniature Schnauzer and I inherited her when my dad and his wife went into assisted living. We fell in love with each other during the months I was in Arizona, so the stress of losing her original family and moving to a new location wasn't too hard for her. After spending her whole life in the hot desert, I was worried about her reaction to snow and cold, but she doesn't seem to mind a bit. She plunged right into the snow without any hesitation at all and isn't too eager to come in from the cold.

This new addition to our lives is proving to be lots of fun, but I promise not to tell too many stories or inundate you with cute photos.

Congratulations and enjoy the little sweetie. I have had miniature schnauzers most of my life and my buddy, Celine, is now seventeen. I am afraid she will be my last as I too am in my sixties.
