You would think that after 6 months, the obsession would end. But it hasn't. In fact today made it clear to me that Mia and Rosie are bonded together in a way that most kids and dogs are not. I was upstairs mopping the floors when I heard Kail shriek, "Mom, come look at Mia!". This happens often and it's usually accompanied by something like: Mia and the dog in the sink with bubbles and handsoap or Mia and the dog in a big pile of dirt or Mia and the dog in a puddle of water. You get the idea. She's that kind of a girl. But today was a new one. Today Mia decided to be like Rosie. A little too much. I ran downstairs and found Mia cheeks stuffed full and hands digging in to Rosie's dog treats. Yeah, she wasn't licking them, or sniffing them, she was eating them like they were chocolate chip cookies (which she is also obsessed with). I asked her to spit them out and explained that they were so yucky. She just looked at me and said, "no they're not, they're yummy." (Which may in fact be the case as I had succumbed to buying Trader's Joe's all natural dog treats. Pretty sure she found the peanut butter flavor.) Whatever. Gross. Really gross.
