I have officially turned into a Mom. I’ve only had Chip for 3 weeks, but I’ve been rocking stains on my clothes and have been showering significantly less than I should be. You always hear stories about new moms who let themselves go the first few months after having their babies. The difference between me and those moms (besides the obvious fact that I have a puppy and not an actual baby) is that I’m not on maternity leave, but have been going to work in this grotesque state for the past 21 days.
Besides my sleep deprivation, pee stained wardrobe and messy hair buns this mommy syndrom has moved past my physical appearance. Instead of going to the gym or making it to my hair appointment (which I’ve reschedule 3 times now) I’ve been spending my days oogling over puppy photos. I’ve basically been forcing my friends and coworkers to stop work in order enjoy photo after photo of Chip. When I’m not on my computer scanning through the album I’ve created of him on Facebook then I’m on the subway perusing the photos on my phone! To make matters worse, I’ve been making excuses to stay in with my little pup, cozying up on the couch and watching more Lifetime and TLC than one twenty-five year old should be viewing.I’ve officially jumped off the deep end with love for my Dog. I’ve turned into someone that I used to make fun of, but I couldn’t be more happy.
