Whip 'Em Out

During Breastfeeding Awareness Month I was learning to breastfeed Emmelia, barely sleeping, and preparing to go back to school. Needless to say, I missed it. But, I found this great PSA this week and I thought I'd share, even if it is after-the-fact. Have a giggle, enjoy, and support breastfeeding moms!

Life is Crazy

I regret that I haven't been able to post anything recently. But, as you can see from the photos below, life is crazy. William is now 16 months-old and Emmelia is eight weeks. We have our hands full, to say the least. Can you complete a doctoral program while raising two small children and being married to a minister? I guess we'll find out!

Seeking Families for our Pets

We need to find good homes for a few of our pets. Our lifestyle, which now includes two part-time jobs (with full-time workloads) and two small children, no longer provides the money, time, or energy to provide the kind of care that they need. We love these animals dearly, but we can't take care of them anymore. So, I present them to you, my readers, hoping that maybe you or someone you know will be interested in providing a good home for them.

Jonah is a four year-old small gray cat with a big personality. He's our little Napoleon, standing up for himself and putting everyone in their place (below him, of course). He's very affectionate and particularly fond of ladies. (He's been a momma's boy from day one.)

Elijah is a five year-old large orange tabby cat. He's very laid back and easy going. He's shy with strangers at first, but loving and social once he knows you're a friend. He and Jonah are buddies, but we think they will adjust if they end up going to separate homes.

Cooper is a beautiful, four year-old, faun boxer. He's truly a joyful pet, loving, eager to please, and great with kids. Like most boxers, who are known for exuberance and clowning, he needs firm, consistent direction (and responds very well to it). We are the most brokenhearted about parting with Cooper, but he really needs a family that can provide lots of attention, play time, and intentional exercise.

All of our pets have been kept up-to-date on their vaccinations (we have some of the records) and regularly groomed (until recently).

If you or someone you know are interested in providing a good, safe, loving home to one of these animals, please let me know. We live in Dayton, OH and would be happy to absorb some travel expenses to be sure they are in a good family.
