Zzzzzzzz....boring post alert

Things are looking up in my stinky house. We have been spraying the carpet down every night with this...
I am fairly confident that our carpet no longer stinks, but I am very confident that my dog still stinks. She was sprayed in the face. It is incredibly hard to saturate her head, without getting the chemicals into her eyes, nose, and mouth. So, she still stinks - BAD. But things are improving.

In other news, I took Porgie to a special Halloween story time at our local library last night. Not good. The child was a demon. She ran around like a maniac during the entire story. Then, she happily rolled on the floor kicking her legs during the craft. And finally, she started pulling books off of the shelves. So, after a mere 30 minutes at the library, we had to leave. I really thought she would be well behaved this year, but I was wrong. Apparently, she only likes to listen to books at HOME. And it didn't help that all of the other kids were school-aged. The other children were so well-behaved, I felt ashamed of my wild child. However, she was extremely adorable in her little costume.

Porgie enjoying a good book at HOME...

Izzy has officially turned into a big kid. We were taking our nightly walk around our block on Sunday, and I was asking Porgie to identify sounds that Halloween creatures make (cat, ghost, monster, etc.). I asked her, "What does a Ghost say?" and before she could answer, Izzy said, "Boo!" It was extremely adorable. I guess this means my little guy is going to be talking soon. So bittersweet.

Izzy laughing hysterically...

Ahhhh...that's some good stuff you got there. But have you tried tomato juice on the dog? It's supposed to neutralize it.

amanda said...

no he did not say boo!! honey i love it!!

thank goodness for the little things :)

Jiff said...

Yeah, I was gonna say tomato juice for the dog. If it gets near his/her eyes, he/she can just lick it out. lol.

Awww...your kiddos are too cute.

Check out all those adorable little teeth! I love it!

Mama Kalila said...

So sweet.. well not the skunk smell or the acting up during the story (but don't feel bad about that... she's still young, it happens).

Allison R said...

Tomato juice definitely works. And, it only stings if it gets in the eyes - won't cause blindness.

Mama Smurf said...

OMG that picture of Izzy is priceless! LOVE it!

That is the most adorable pic of Izzy ever. I could so use that as MY desktop. Sooo awesome.

Dana said...

Absolutly do tomato juice mulitple times!! Or I would bring him to the groomer - it may be worth spending a couple of bucks to have a professional attack the situation!!

I am reliving the time our dog got sprayed in the face. I remember it well. She smelled for-ever. And my house stunk too.

Izzy is adorable. I love that smile :)

Rachel said...

I know that child that can turn into a demon. I hate when those kind of nice plans get screwy. I adore the pics as usual. We use natures miracle as well. Plus i love candles and anything that makes the house smell good.

PS. Nature's Miracle is to SWEAR by. I buy the doggie stuff and use it for EVERYTHING we stain in the carpets.

Nellie said...

Izzy laughing! That is so cute... what a face he makes :)

Sad when they're all the sudden one day not a baby anymore.

not that you asked any advise or anything, but you should consider putting little porgie in a preschool program or play group. im sure she was not really being a demon, or she was just showing off for halloween!
