Right now they ARE my babies!

With Halloween coming up this weekend, I ordered costumes online for my two dogs.

When they got here, I put them on my dogs and, using treats for bribery, took some photos of them.

I posted a photo of the two of them on my facebook page. An aunt (who while she may not know the specific details, knows we've had "trouble" ttc) commented: "You have too much time on your hands!"

Really? Is that what you are going to tell my sister when she posts pictures of her two year old in his costume? Is that what you will tell the parents who bring their kids in their fifty dollar costumes trick or treating to your door?

Oh, and for the record? If we finally DO get pregnant and have babies, I probably will STILL take pictures of my dogs in costume at Halloween. Maybe I'll even buy a matching one for the kid.

I remember people saying that when I posted pictures of my dogs' nails I had painted. It hurt.

I'll bet you still will dress up your dogs. They are your babies, and they still will be, even when your human baby comes.

There is nothing wrong with dressing up your dogs!!! I want to see the pic though! I bet they look adorable :) Forget what your Aunt said, she obviously doesn't get it!
