Say What, Sweetie? 10 Things You Don't Know About Dachshund Mommy

    DM: Quick reminder, Sweetie is my mother and Nola's grandma.

Hello Blogville! Welcome to another fabulous edition of Say What, Sweetie? Did ya miss me? :)
This post is an especially extra-special one because....I'm going to spill the beans on Dachshund Mommy (insert diabolical laugh here!)! This will be the first of "Sweetie's Top Ten" lists! For your reading pleasure, this post is:

Sweetie's Top Ten: Things You Don't Know About Dachshund Mommy (here after referred to as DM)!

1. Today is DM's birthday! That's right! That makes her...well. I won't get into just how old because that makes me...well...moving on!

2. DM is a biter. Oh yes. Her only school experience was at a sweet little co-op pre-school. One day, when I arrived to pick her up, I had to go see the director because DM, my little angel, was in trouble for biting a boy! All because he wouldn't get off the monkey bars....

3. Nola, our precious little diva, was supposed to be MY dog! Yep. Mine. That's ok though, if she hadn't chosen DM, we never would have gotten my Augustine (Minion #1).

4. DM cannot paint her nails. She paints her fingers. I don't know where she gets that from! Really, I swear, I don't. (Sugar paints them for her!)

5. DM is the eldest of 6 kids! Yes, we do have tv....BOL!

6. As mentioned above, DM never attended school. We've always homeschooled, or unschooled really.

7. DM's first word was "ball". She was just barely 5 months old. I'll let you determine what that first word says about her...and her mother! BOL!

8. DM has owned the following types of fur babies: a Dalmatian, 4 mastiffs ("English") and the wiener pack.

9. DM can "curl" her tongue but cannot cross her eyes...or play "patty cake"!

10. DM's favorite yogurt is lemon flavored!

She wouldn't let me post all the "good" (read: embarrassing, mortifying, GOOD) stuff from her childhood! BOL!
I hope you enjoyed learning a bit more about our DM. She's a great person and we wish her a wonderful year and many, many more to come!
Next time on Say What, Sweetie, I will shamelessly plug my own blogs! Hope everyone has a pawsome day! We close with a very loud: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DM!!!!

Warmest Wishes,


  1. Love posts from Sweetie! There were tons of things I didn't know it about DM. Leave it to a mom to spill the beans. I didn't know you had a blog, Sweetie. Can't wait to hear all about it.

    May all your wishes come true.
    Oh and lots of good cake too.

  26. Well sh*t girlfriend, if we had know it was your birthday we would have baked you a nice cake and sent it in the mail to ya! Happy, Happy Birthday Dachshund Mommy. We send you great BIG wet kisses on your special day.

    We loved the 10 thing's game. Number 7 was our favorite. Mommy thought at first the word was BAIL as in get out of jail bail. What a silly knucklehead she is. We had to correct her.

    Much love,
    Lily Belle & Muffin

  27. BTWs this was a great post... we didn't know you were homeschooled. :) Reed is homeschooled, has been except for a small stint between 4-6 when he went to private school. He prefers being homeschooled... :)
