I’m Better Than A Sweater

Little Man has had the kind of week where he just needed a lot of extra cuddles and love. He’s pretty much been glued to me, to the point that he even cried when I went to knitting on Tuesday. I can’t remember the last time when he cried when I left the house. So it’s been a lot of snuggles this week, reading books, doing puzzles, a lot of general togetherness.

Tonight during supper, as he slid his dining room chair as close to mine as possible, I commented, “You’ve really needed a lot of extra Mommy time this week, haven’t you?” He nodded and dove into his sandwich.

Later, when I was getting the boys ready for bed, Little Man  picked out his books and crawled into bed and said,  “You know why I need extra Mommy time this week?”

“Why’s that?” I replied.

“It’s because you’re so warm. And it’s really cold now.”

Must be all that wool I’m wearing.
The beagle, as I’m sure you’re all wondering, is coming to live with us!

She was a stray we found last weekend, who stayed with us until the vet’s office opened on Monday and we were able to find her people from her rabies tag info. She is the sweetest girl ever, and ironically, her family was in the process of looking for a new home for her as she escaped this weekend for her little neighborhood jaunt. They have another baby coming  and feel they can’t give her the attention she deserves.

I had hoped my parents would take her. My Mom said yes but my Dad is not quite sold on the idea. The Skeptic at first said “no way” when I brought up the idea of us keeping her if my parents couldn’t. But, he’s a softie, and when he came home from work today he told us all, “I have good news. Bailey the beagle has found a new home… with us!”

So we now have two dogs, two cats, and two kids. Wish us luck:-)
