No More Kids for Me!!!!

Well, it all starts on a beautiful Friday afternoon. I have the day off. What could possibly go wrong????? I am babysitting my friend’s daughter for the weekend so they can go to Palm Beach and enjoy their anniversary. Hey, no problem….I’ve done it before. The girls play great together. No Hassles, No worries. well turn it back to Wednesday when I get a text from this friend informing she, no wait it was her DH, bought a puppy….And right before they go away for the weekend!!!! Don’t get me wrong….He is the MOST adorable thing you would ever see and unbelievably very good at letting you know when he needs to go outside! BUT and that’s a big but, he does not sleep through the night….without barking and yelping to go outside to use the bathroom!!!!! I felt like I was with a newborn baby last night!!!! I didn’t get a good night’s sleep at all and trust me when I tell you that I need my sleep!!!!!! I felt like a new mom on her first night with the new baby…shocked in how she ACTUALLY does have to get up all night…ROTF!!! The poor thing….at least he did use the bathroom every time we walked ALL the way down the stairs and into the backyard! Or else I may have had a reason to get upset. LOL!!!! Well, we got up at 3am, 5am, 6am and then finally up for good at 7am…then the first little girl arose from bed and my DD (being well trained and all…LOL) did not crawl out of bed until 8:30 because her friend woke her =-) Needless to say I have been dragging ALL day and cannot wait until bed time….kinda…LOL 😉

    I had this same experience, except my friends dog wasn’t a puppy. He didn’t know how to sleep without his parents so he spent the whole night crying. We had him for a week! No more puppy sitting for us.
