The Teacher Stare

Those of you who've followed our blog for a long time know that Mom Paula was once a middle school math teacher and a college professor.  Mom Paula may be short and "sweet" but she had a mean teacher stare.  Even her nephews would say, "GaGa, please don't use that teacher stare on us." We think Truffle is tapping into her inner teacher with this stare.  Can't you just see her telling Mom Paula to get her stinky goodness in her bowl right now?

Even with the evil teacher stare, she is adorable.

Giveaways

We're very excited that we will be sponsoring several giveaways over the next few weeks.  Once Mom Paula can get some photographs of us with the products, we'll post, so be sure to check back regularly.

2016 Calendar

Don't forget to send in your photos or collages for inclusion in the 2016 calendar.  You can read the guidelines for the photos by clicking on the graphic on the sidebar or by visiting here.  The original deadline for submitting photos was today, but we've extended it to August 1, 2015.  Mom Paula hopes to begin working on it again after she gets back from a meeting in D.C. in a couple of weeks.

  14. Truffle knows how to turn on the stink eye! I think there is a whole course in college for teachers on giving the proper stare. I guess she takes after her mommy. :)

    1. When Mom Paula was a professor, she taught classroom management and one of the assignments for the students was to practice their teacher stare. Mom Paula then made each of them demonstrate it in the classroom.
