8.1.12 MommyLag

01 Aug

Welcome Home Mom Attack

Lulu won’t let anyone near me! “My Mommy!” she growls.

My understanding is that both the humans and the animals were losing their minds by the 5th day I was gone.  The animals were being so annoying they just wanted someone, anyone, to pay attention to them.  I heard that Sofie actually started hitting Louise in the head to get her to play.  While I was gone my daughter took some pictures, so I will have to see them to understand some of the antics.  I did Skype with Muffin and Nine but they were not very talkative; the dogs were at daycare, so I missed them on the call.  The report was that the dogs actually did sleep until like 8 AM which never happens when I am home (very interesting).  Like JetLag (which takes a major toll on your circadian rhythm especially when you were 14 hours ahead and now you have to come back), MommyLag is similar.  It takes time for everything to return to ‘normal.’ Right now both humans and animals want to be near me a lot more than usual. Sofie won’t let me out of her sight.  Lulu wants to crawl inside me and keeps one paw on me at all times.  I’ve read that JetLag takes one day for every hour you need to readjust, I wonder how much time it takes for MommyLag?  I am sure the humans will be back to taking me for granted way before the furballs do.  Nice to be home.

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    Definitely no disguising their joy to have their momma back home! Hope you don’t have to go back to work right away. Sounds like your “lag” is going to be with you for a while.

    Mom never leaves me for more than a few hours, and I still want to climb inside her and live there. I think the girls are being very reserved, all things considered. They showed great courage the whole time, so now they need to lick your face off. Go, girls!

    Love and licks,

      They were strong, weren’t they. And they are licking my face off, for sure.

    Sampson usually plasters himself against me for a day or so after I come back, but I’ve never actually been gone too long! You are probably being smothered. They were breaking my heart when you were gone. 🙂

      It is so cute. But Lulu is getting a little tooooo possessive. That’s a new one.
