Morning walkies.

Not a long ago, we posted about our last morning walky with mom.
Since then, mom was back to work for the first time in almost two years.
She was happy despite of her crazy schedule.
Meanwhile, dad had to deal with so many unexpected things and that was very difficult.
Poor dad...........
Dad and mom had many many discussions
and they made a very tough decision.
***************************
Today was mom's the first day as a stay-home mom.... again.
(Wait, she does't stay home all the time, can we still call her stay home mom??)
Me, Momo being happy during our walky with mom and dad
this morning.
We let them to get coffee before going to the park.
It was a very warm and sticky morning.
I Pinot needed to jump to the water.
"Sissy, come!"
"Enjoy!!"
"My best buddy needs some refreshment, too!"
:) I couldn't stop smiling this morning. :)
"BOO!!"
Can you see my happy face??

Yep, that is a tough decision. But we're sure you both support your mom and dad's decision. Enjoy your walkies.

That looks like a great morning at the lake. Nice way to cool off. Glad to hear that your mom can stay home with you guys and your brother. Now you can have more great walks together.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

A tough decision indeed. I stayed home for three years with my kids, went back to work for two, and am back home again after making the same decision. I, too, had a very happy Cavalier on his walkie this morning!!

Yeah, I wish my mom made the same win-win decision, I have told her to stay home but has she ever listened?
It's so nice to see both of you smiling, happiness overload, I love it!
Cheers!
PeeS: My mom is looking for the little prince photo in this post today.

It must have been a very difficult decision to make. Everything will turn out for the best, I'm sure. Looks like Momo and Pinot totally approve!
BTW, did you know that Rouky's dad, Philippe, is in love with Momo? Every time she is in a picture, he goes gaga! :-)

Sure it was not an easy decision!
But sure is pawesome to have your mom at home all the time, right??
I can see you had a happy walkie!
Kisses and hugs

Tough decisions indeed, but I think your parents will be able to work it out...they are great parents! *grins*

Your walkies are so cool! I think I need to go out on more walkies too...I'm feeling bored! LOL!

Hope you have a great week ahead!

Love My Cavaliers said...

Being a stay at home Mum was an easy decision for me. It was something I always wanted to do when children and puppies came along. I didn't know if it would be possible but I feel so blessed that I am able to be here 100% for children and puppies. While it is difficult to give up that extra income especially when we need it in difficult economic times, staying home with your little boy will be the BEST difficult decision you ever made. Just enjoy it and the time you can spend one to one (or should I say one to three with Momo and Pinot as well) that you can have in the first five years of your little boys life. Plenty of time for working later when he is at school. Marley and Jasper and their Mummy.

What lovely dogs you have and great pictures. I've been known to photograph a few dogs at various intervals on my blog. Just linked into your page as a result of your recent comment on "country living in the city". It was worth it.

Having your family with you all the time is Heaven! You are very fortunate and we feel exactly the same way!

Love ya lots

Aiko macht sich Gedanken said...

Hello Momo and hello Pinot,
sorry - I´m late but I hope not tooooo late.
My thoughts are the same as I could read in one of the other comments. The life is so short - and the little boy will be so fast a big boy - unbelievable fast - and staying with him is one of the adorable gifts of a women` life - and she had such a cute boy and also so funny two doggiefriends.
After a few years your mum can hopefully start going back to work.
Stay strong and have much fun - life is so wonderful and beeing mum is every day a little lesson of life.
Wuff and LG also from my Frauchen

カナダは、涼しそうでいいなぁ・・・
夏休み、里帰りしませんか~?

Amber and Nala said...

Oh hi Momo & Pinot...thanks for visiting my blog! I LOVE your names...what clever humans you must have. Guess what? I have a cousin that is a King Charles Cavalier...ok, technically, he's not my cousin but kind of. He's actually deaf and didn't used to like me very much but now he seems ok with me. :) Anyway, looks like you had fun in the water.

Kisses,
Nala

Cinnamon said...

Whatever the decision your humans made is, it is so nice to have walks together with them, isn't it? And I think it is nice for them too.

How are you guys doing? Looks like you are having fun on your walkies and what a pretty place to walk!

Yes tough decision but we have no doubt that your mom made the right one for your family : )

Looking forward to seeing you in October.

Hi MoMo & Pinot,

Long time no woof!

I'm sorry to hear about your Mom's job - and the tough decisions! But I'm sure they thought things through and made the best decision for the situation. Anyway, I'm sure you're glad to have her home with you again - and of course, your morning walks back again!

By the way, in case you hadn't seen it - I saw this really cool video on another blog and I thought of you as it's in Japanese so your Mom should be able to understand what they're saying (Hsin-Yi had to guess!) and it might cheer her up a bit! :-)
