January 3, 2016: Daddy and I haven’t given up on our ‘Let’s Convince Mommy We Should Get a Puppy Club.’ We just had to take a break. Now that Finley’s here, we are actively recruiting new members. I started the process early and bought a stuffed puppy at the cottage for Finley before she was born. I’m slowly introducing her to the puppy and showing her how cute puppies are…I didn’t think it would be this hard to convince her, but she’s turning out to be a hard nut to crack. I mean, really, who doesn’t like puppies?
