My Day

This is a perfect photo to describe my day (work related anyway). There was a lot of this going on with me today related to work. Sometimes I love my job -- sometimes, I really don't like it. Today was one of those days.
And Ellie's new nickname? Drama mama. The above photo represents what we've been seeing a lot of lately. I'm hopeful it's a short "phase". Her favorite thing to do is to get on the floor, put her booty in the air, lay her head on her hands and just sob. It's so pitiful that it's almost funny. Everything hurts her feelings, but mostly it's when she wants you to pick her up and you don't. This is not quite the pose, but she's getting ready to be there. The prostrate pose is followed by sitting back on her legs and bouncing up and down while crying. Oh, the drama of it all. I'll try to catch it on video. I want to use it to show her one day.

I am so glad to see that we aren't the only ones with this issue! Yes, I know exactly what you mean about the hurt feelings -- Bethany is doing the same thing lately. It seems that just about anything will hurt her feelings and she'll pout and cry and just wail! Tell Ellie she apparently has company in the drama department (including Bethany and, from what I read, Anara, too!). She's still adorable, though; give her a hug from us!

I am very familiar with this show!! I seem to fall for it the majority of the time ;)

It really ticks her off when I step over her and go about my business and laugh! She very quickly decides that the drama is not beneficial...
