No, you didn't jinx it. It would have happened anyways.

Kudos to your son for his responsibility.

I'm so sorry about Roxy. What a fine young man MVP is. I hope the surgery is a complete success and they can be out roaming again before long.

I am also so proud of your son...he is really growing up and figured this out on his own. Pets can really cost you. A lesson well learned.
Loved the older post about your nails too...I have never been able to justify getting mine done. But really, since I don't shoot up, why NOT?


Oh, so sorry.
but what a great lesson in responsibility, huh?


I'm sorry to hear about MVP's dog, it's really a bummer. I hope the surgery goes smoothly and is successful. I'd be very proud of my son for taking responsibility like MVP is, just shows you've raise him right!!


Every time I learn more about MVP, I am in great hopes that a few of mine will turn out like him.

*love* the addict remark. That is exactly how I justify my odd purchases!


wow - you've raised a responsible son!

My boys (and husband) are wanting a dog. One of the (many) reasons I am hesitant is the cost involved...like, what if it needs surgery?!?

I think I'll put the dog thing off for a while longer ;)


You have got to be so proud of him! Imagine, a college student not asking his parents for money?!

Aunt Becky

That kid is WAY better than I was at his age. Or, uh, now, really.


Gah, bummer! Poor dog, poor boy, hope all turns out well.


That son of yours is someone for you and your husband to be very proud of!

Green Girl in Wisconsin

Wow, that is expensive. And totally brings to mind our babysitter who spends all her earnings on...a HORSE.


Oh no! That is a bummer! Your awesome parenting shows in MVP's sense of responsibility!


Good for him and good luck with the surgery.
