A Puppy in a Baby Carriage
What kind of sick "jinx the uterus" game did you just start? I feel as though some "countdown to child birth" clock has been turned on. We are in panic mode now. Got to go to Italy...to Africa...to...oh gosh, there is no time!Ignoring that for now, raising a puppy seems to be perfect training for having a kid. If they are bad, just put them outside and let them play on the deck. And to solve the lack of sleep problem just put them in a cage, give them something to chew on, and tell them to stop whining. So much like how I was raised.Crap, our puppy just drug in a giant muddy root from outside...better go.
Interesting theory. And the crying all night & pooping all day is defintely something that babies & puppies have in common, so true!(But at least you KNOW where the babies' poop is!)
Okay Okay Anna. Maybe you will be the first to prove my theory wrong. I can only hope for your sake (and mine) that you are indeed an anomaly. BTW, Corinne doesn't like your dog. How do you feel about that?!?!
I think the puppy to child transition is a pretty good idea. Even better is the garden/house plant to puppy to child transition. Although nothing on this earth will prepare you for the deep devotion you will have for your own flesh and blood if you are so blessed to experience it... someday.... you have plenty of time.... enjoy your married-without-children days.... and your restful nights.... and your hot dates without a baby or puppy in tow... and your non-mini van car that seems practical until you have to put a car seat backward into it.... and did I mention restful nights?.
Ahem, cough, exCUSE me. Would you like to make some kind of amendment or exception to your little theory there, or shall I just get myself knocked up within the next 3 months (that would be 1.5 years) to prove you right. Come on, NOBODY wants that.
your third paragraph says it all... why would anyone want to take on a creature that whines all night and poops everywhere and cramps your weekends-away style unless it was something you created that looks just like you and will eventually call you by name? i can't imagine taking on a pet at our age, what a hassle. i know i know... my not being an animal person is a major character flaw. shane makes this clear to me whenever I push jim away from licking me.
