My small secret revealed

After a week of Bev pestering me about a baby shower, let me set the record straight.  No, my big news isn't that I am pregnant.  And ha ha, Bev.

And just to prove it, here's the big news:  my blog post about not wanting to be pregnant ever again has been published by the incredibly awesome Offbeat Families (which you should really peruse around for an entire day)!

You can't see it, but I appreciate that my post is nestled between ads for maternity clothing

Ta Da.

Now you may go back to Googling photos of dogs with reading glasses.

This one looks like my dog Charlie, only drunker.

This one isn't wearing glasses, but that would've made it funnier.

  1. I love dogs. And I'm tired of cat pictures LOL.

    What a great article and title-- one I can easily relate to. I'm getting to the age where I'm starting to give my kids time limits on giving me grandkids. "You get ten years!" No pressure there.

  2. We tell our kids that they have to wait until they're 30 before they can marry or have children.

  3. That DOES look like a drunk Charlie! Oh my goodness!

    CONGRATU-FREAKIN-LATIONS on getting that piece published!!! I love it so much and I'm so glad it's found a home!

    1. Thank you, lady friend. They've published one of my posts before (last year - about my son's attention deficit on the soccer field - which is epic, btw), and I love them.

      Doesn't that dog look like my terror? It made me giggle. Also, I may play with GIMP (which is now slowing down my laptop even more) and put some half glasses on that German Shepherd. His face wants them.

  4. Congratulations! Im gonna go home and put glasses on my dog.

    1. My husband thinks I have a problem because I think half glasses are hilarious. Seriously, I cannot look at someone - let alone a dog - in half glasses or looking down their nose with a pair of readers and not burst into maniacal snorts.

      If you put glasses on your dog, please send me a photo!

  5. oh, so now you're famous amy. gotcha! you will be clinking glasses with margaret and david soon and i'll be standing in the shadows - holding your pea coat.
    ps i'm pleased for you only in a way a bff can be. xxx
    pss i mean that.

    1. I hardly think Offbeat Families equates with The New Yorker, but I'll enjoy your fantasy, Ms. 7,000 followers. Thank you for holding my pea coat, btw. Just don't put it on. It'll make you look preggers.

      PS- Thank you, virtual bff.


Comments for me? Thanks a bunch!
