Big Weekend

It was a big weekend- Pee Wee made it into the evening prayers.  We are now officially thankful for Pee Wee.  Kind of a big deal. 


In all honestly- it is strange how much I love the little stinker in just a few months.  He just fills me with smiles and love.  Cheese alert!

Side note:  I have worked with babies my entire life- and I have loved some of them more than I ever though possible.  And now this dog.  I often wonder how I could possibly love my own real children more than those kids or this dog.  Anyone else feel that way?  Or I am just the crazy?

Well, I am off to corral some kiddos while their mothers get a chance at adult conversation for a few hours.  Cheers.  (Or more likely- Cheerios!)

I know what you mean about not knowing you could love a dog that much - and I'm told your love for your own children is absolutely unexplainable, so I figure I'll take the world's word for it?

Aw your pup is adorable! I want a dog so bad and I know I'll love it like a child, ha!

I know what you mean. I adore my students (most of them.) And I love my dogs.

How will I have enough love for my own children?

Once my kids were older, we started rescuing animals and they are like our kids now. Truly.

I just had a baby and my animals still are like my children to me. :)

My cat is 10.5 and sometimes I feel so overwhelmed with love for her I don't know what to do with myself. If you had told me six months ago I would love her more now than I did then I would have thought it was impossible, but it's true. I love her more and more everyday.

I know what you mean - I used to hate dogs and now I can't imagine my life without my little pup. They sure do wiggle their way into our hearts :)

Taryn, I know exactly what you mean! We had a dog, Obie, for about 3 years before Emma was born. I would cry just thinking about the day Obie would die. I loved him so fiercely I thought something was wrong with me. But then.... Emma was born. Obie took a backseat to all things Emma. I was astounded at how much I loved EMMA!!!! And amazingly, the love for your kids only multiplies and intensifies with each one you have. I remember wondering how on earth I could love a 2nd child as much as the first! (But it's possible! And a 3rd... and a 4th...) Fast forward a couple of years, and we actually had to give Obie away because he wasn't a huge fan of our kids. It broke my heart, but was easy in comparison to how much I loved my kids. It's a crazy thing!

Aww! Puppy dog, dogs (next to goats) are my favorite animals.

Relient K still stuck in your head? ;)

Sometimes I wonder that too. I'm obsessed with my dog.

Your puppy is ADORABLE.

Yes, I understand the doggy love--totally. The love for your child--whoa. It is totally amazing. I think I cried the first few days after Hazel was born just because I didn't know I could love someone that much.

I felt the same way about our dog before we had children. He was my baby. I think it is the mother in us, just wanting to mother something so bad. Trust me, when you have kids, things will change with the dog, but they will still always be your first baby.

Thanks for stopping by blog and leaving a comment about the laundry soap. I have a question for you and I'd love it if you could answer it back on my blog for my followers to read. How much of the grated laundry mixture do you use in a top loading washing maching (large load)?
