I have a lot of catching up to do but today we stopped by Quincy's store (aka The Storks Cradle), and while Ellie doted on Quincy (he's the dog), I watched as Maddie transformed before my eyes into a dog lover. She typically puts up with dogs. Smiles at them at best. Today was different - she was squealing with delight, scooting around to get right up in the pup's face. Giggling when he licked her cheeks.
I used to be a dog lover, but since having kids (and more than enough poop to go around), I can only see the negatives: hair everywhere, one more bladder to train, body to wash, mouth to feed and hush.
But today? I totally remembered why dogs are so much fun, and maybe even worth it. (One day.) I love seeing my kids so happy and full of love.
Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!
