The ten best things about a new puppy

  1. All the Lego pieces, now defined as “choking hazards” finally get picked up from the floor.
  2. I get to hear my big boys’ “talking to a baby” voices.
  3. A puppy helps a house be a home.
  4. Naming a pet is a wonderful collaborative family decision.
  5. All 5 of us (1 mom, 3 boys, 1 male puppy) have been outside.  Together.  In February.
  6. Puppy breath, duh!
  7. House training is evolving into a family project.
  8. The boys find him even more mesmerizing than their PS 4.
  9. Having a baby in the house brings out the nurturing mommy in all of us.
  10. A new puppy reminds us that our hearts can always expand to make room for another.

    Congratulations! As your email popped up, I was talking to a co-worker that just adopted a black lab and was showing me photos. Happy times ahead for you and the boys with your new family addition. So happy for you all.

  4. Thank you everyone! It’s been a long time since we’ve had a puppy in the house – it’s like having a baby. There will be a post to follow that!
