Turn A Little To The Left…Click

by Sherry Riter in Bella {a dog's story}  

The lovely clickity clacketing of my keyboard was barely able to keep up with my thoughts as I typed, but all of a sudden…

“Mo-om!?” Alyssa calls out from the direction of her bedroom. Of course, my name was two syllables. I love how Alyssa makes “Mom” two syllables.

I stopped typing and called back, “Ye-es!?” as I make a one syllable word into two syllables too.

“Grab the camera and come here!” she answered back.

Well, I never have to be coaxed to pick up the camera, so I grabbed it and ran down the hallway towards her bedroom. As I approached, I could hear the water running in the tub. When I walked around the corner into her bathroom, I immediately realized why she wanted me to take pictures.

Poor Bella. She doesn’t like getting a bath and she was shaking her head and wiggling like crazy.

Alyssa gave Bella a bath and then wrapped her in a towel. It’s just a towel to Alyssa and Bella, but that is one of the baby towels I used when Alyssa was born. Yeah, time does fly.

Those doggies really don’t like getting wet. They need to be wrapped up, warmed up and fluffed up. Blessings, Debby

Adorable story. It makes me tear up when my daughter wraps her baby dolls in her blanket. Can’t imagine if she did this!
