Nice Try...


Celeste brought this card home from school the other day and it gave me a chuckle. The kids have been begging to have a family dog for a while now, and Celeste is obviously becoming more manipulative creative in her approach. But this momma will not budge on this one. I have enough messes to clean up around here as it is! And there is no way we're adding more to this craziness... at least not until all the kids are out of diapers! Sorry Sweetie, love me or not, we are NOT getting a dog anytime soon.

That's awesome! She gets major points for creativity.

I'm glad that you're posting again. It's good to see what is going on with you guys. Even Noah is enjoying seeing the pictures of Celeste!

Maybe Celeste could play with a neighbors dog. We never had a dog growing up either! We had an outside cat and then later when my mom thought we were old enough we had a guinea pig. I hated that pet! Mostly, i hated cleaning out his cage...eww! (That was our job because we begged and begged).

Amen! I've flat out told my kids that we will not be having any pets. They still ask from time to to time. But we tell them that Dad is alergic. And mom is overwhelmed.

I love it! Kids will try and wiggle into gettting their way. Stay strong! :)

You can't blame her for trying! We just found out today that we have to put our cat, Jasper, to sleep. We are worried about telling Anna since she prayed for a cat!

I tell my kids that after we are done having kids, and they are all potty-trained we'll discuss it. Because there is no way in heck I"m doing diapers and pooper scooping. And I'm not going to be one of those neighbors who lets their animal go in anybody's yard (I cleaned up a little present I noticed after I put Angel Baby on the ground! GRRRR!).

I'm with you on the "no dog" rule... but have you thought about having chickens? At least they earn their keep.
