Mommies In The Making


Olive, at Insert Metaphor, is welcoming a super cute, furry member to their family this week and wrote a post about something called NBNP—No Baby,New Pet. Back in September, we got hit with NBNP and bought our cat, Harlow. After our IVF cycle did not work at the end if November, I got hit with the NBNP bug again and  started immediately looking at adoptable dogs. A few days after Christmas we went to the Humane Society and left with a 11-week old Shepherd mix. My dad, asked me a few days later why we got her. All I could say is, “Well, if I can’t have a baby, then I will have a puppy.” Yep, was making all kinds of sense at that time.

Meet Carlie.
