One day my niece Alissa came running in all excited. She was smiling ear to ear.
She said, "Guess What? My Mom said we can get a dog when she dies!"
Excuse me. What?
Apparently the girls were bugging and bugging my sister for a dog and she finally said, " Girls, over my dead body you will get a dog." Alissa found the positive in that, I guess.
Needless to say, my sister and husband finally gave in an brought home a dog, Lucky.
So named because the girls were very Lucky to get a dog!
And... my sister is still with us :)
