meandmyinsanity Aden got a lot of blogger love today at #bonconfaz. First by @lollyjaneblog and then by @whippycake as shown here. It was a great event and I think we both felt the love. I was honored to rub shoulders with so many talented and inspiring women! Thanks for the invite #boncom! 16h

meandmyinsanity Meet Daisy! #chihuahua We are dog-sitting/test-driving her as a potential addition to our family (Shh....don't tell the kids!). I am the least of a dog-person in our family and guess who she likes best? Me, of course. She was my little shadow today. She'd better start showing some love to BSB or she won't last here. Any Chihuahua lovers out there have any tips for us? She's been really shy from some previous mid-treatment. #dogsofinstagram 2d
  •   rachelandlucky Chihuahuas are sweet, loveable and very loyal. 2d
  •   meandmyinsanity @kalen615 you have advice for us, right? We couldn't get her to eat until just barely. 2d
  •   kalen615 Lack of appetite and shyness are both pretty common when a dog Comes into a new home. She sees you as the least threatening I'm guessing because you probably aren't invading her space or pushing for a lot of interaction. It would be good for the first little while to have the others keep a few treats (chopped up hot dogs usually work) with them to gently coax her over and then praise her as she eats from their hands. Is she ok with being held and handled? It'll probably be hard especially for the little ones but it'll be really important for them to give her space and allow her to approach them on her own terms. Also I've known a lot of rescue dogs who are really shy around men that they don't know and it could take a little while for her to warm up. Remember to praise and reward and use positive reinforcement as much as possible to show her that she is safe and secure and she should start to come out of her shell before too long :) I'm happy to give more input but I'll probably send via FB message since this is soooo long already! 2d
  •   thriftydecorchick They are the best! Ours is a chiarat -- rat terrier mix and he would do anything for us. My advice is if you keep her, make sure to have a lot of people over constantly and get her out to dog parks, etc. so she can interact with other dogs. Ours is still territorial when he meets new people and other dogs. Not sure of it's a terrier or chihuahua thing but we're working on it all the time, years later. We love him with all our hearts!!! 2d
  •   dorothyfinn We had a similar situation with a chihuahua. He liked me the best and I liked him the least. He wasn't nice to the kids and they are typically one person dogs when they are coming in older. He obviously didn't stay. Good luck to you!! 1d

meandmyinsanity I was challenged by @bpmama1979 to share my favorite scripture. While I'm not sure I have just one, this verse in Timothy (2 Tim 1:7) has been important in my life. In fact, we may never have gotten married if we hadn't found it! It is also very applicable now as our family faces new challenges and opportunities. I am trying to meet each one with faith instead of fear.
#sharegoodness I challenge @srosenhan @kira.epically @kameronbybee to share their #favoritescripture

meandmyinsanity I think I may have an addiction to pretty wrapping paper. These came from #homegoods. Loved their stationary section. 7d

meandmyinsanity #ootd #momstyle best fashion accessory = baby. Did a mini photo-shoot in the street. After a car went by my 4 year-old tells me "I'm glad you didn't get dead."

meandmyinsanity How awesome is this light fixture made out of blow dryers at the Phoenix #drybar? Nearly as awesome as the feeling of being pampered for a bit when you are a new mom and personal grooming has dropped way down on the priority list. Huge thank you to @bpmama1979 for such a thoughtful and needed #babygift! #groupon #beachhair #rhonnadesigns #rhonnamagic #thankyou 1w

meandmyinsanity Tut tut. Looks like rain. Yesterday was the wettest day on record for Phoenix. Today I drove through a section of freeway that was a lake yesterday. We had a "rain day" off of school because many of the roads in our area were dangerously flooded. We are grateful for the rain but concerned for our friends and neighbors that have experienced flood damage in one of the 100 year event storms we've had this year. Pray that any subsequent storms will be gentle. #monsoon #arizona #crazy 1w

meandmyinsanity Who knew that being a #scienceteacher = being a zookeeper? I'm significantly more excited about these mini #africansulcatatortoises than I am about all of the #snakes (he's up to 4 now!) Thanks to @kameronbybee for the heads up and a big thanks to #ZahariasElementary for supporting the #sciencedepartment at #heritageacademylaveen! #socute #sotiny #babytortoises 2w
  •   kameronbybee You got THREE of them?!! So cute! Maybe our guy needs a play date? 2w
  •   meandmyinsanity @kameronbybee Yes! Crazy right? Hopefully the students that were traumatized by the feeding of the snakes will be happier about these adorable vegetarians. I'm glad these guys are together. Seems like it would be lonely to be alone. Let me know if yours needs friends. 2w
  •   jknobby I love tortoises!!! So cute!! 2w
  •   onedramama Aww! We are up to two tortoises here now, but these guys make me want more!! 2w
