The stork will be bringing a very special someone this year! And not to me… I am not ready to be a mom again… yet! The stork will be stopping by my friend’s house and I want to prep Princess A because she is not very gentle right now. When I was pregnant our dog trainer had me carry around a doll so Freckles would get used to me paying attention to something other than him. I decided to try this with Princess A and also use the doll to teach her that babies need to be handled with special care. Princess A did very well with her 1st training session! Then it was time for her nap. I got her ready and when it was time to sing her a lullaby Freckles was not in his usual spot. I went looking for him and this is what I found. Freckles had taken the doll to his bed and somehow taken the doll’s clothes off… weird! I put Princess A down for nap and then went to figure out what was up with Freckles and I found this…Freckles sleeping with the doll! I inspected the doll’s clothes and Freckles had bitten through the clothes in order to take the outfit off. I don’t know if Freckles was jealous of the doll, jealous of Princess A for getting a new toy or what. Luckily Freckles can’t fly in a plane so he will never be around the stork’s delivery!
I guess it’s not a major deal that Freckles ruined the doll’s clothes. It gives Princess A and I a chance to brush up on our swaddling skills!
