Go buy yourself a puppy

Saturday night if anyone would have made a drop-by at the Bush residence they may have thought G had a secret baby.

Or just babysitting.

But a secret baby is much more Lifetime movie'ish, and interesting, right?

But yeah, we were totally babysitting.

Some friends of ours just had their second baby and needed a sitter for a few hours and of course we obliged. He's little, he's cute, and he's good. PLUS I get to see what life could have been like if we would have had just one more. 

And oh me, the kids were all over him! They absolutely loved it. 

I'm sure if we had our own they wouldn't remain this interested, but it was sweet to watch how much fun they had with him.

And not gonna lie, I had fun too.

It may have made me somewhat nostalgic for these years....

But I do believe my ovaries are slowly turning to dust.

Maybe it's time I get a puppy.

Or just think about how hard it is to be a parent

Or the teeny tiny fact that if I got pregnant RIGHT NOW, I would be 44 when it started kindergarten. (Not that there's anything wrong with that. You know who you are)

Okay G, back to reality.

And go buy yourself a puppy.

Oh my goodness! That cute little face! My eggies would be crying out "Use me! Use me!" :)Thankfully I watch one of my friends little ones and know just how it would feel to have FOUR. And just no. :)

Happy Monday! xoxox

Oh, my! I can totally relate!
We watched a less than two week old for a short time last week and I'm desperate for more baby time. I think because I know we are done at 4 I can enjoy these wee ones so much. I loved the newborn stage and still get teary recalling our own time with little ones (our youngest is 2). Just going to start watching other people's babies more, good idea!

Ha. I'm one of those "you know who you are peeps" and I do think about that a lot. But I wouldn't trade it. I think you know when you are done. Embrace those shriveled ovaries. :)

I'd tell you to get a puppy ... but I think you should have another one. 44YO kindergartner mother be damned. ;-)

Jaime Mac took the words out of my mouth.
Puppy, always a puppy :) Actually I go with nothing at all.

I'm telling you, I don't even get baby fever anymore. With one 14 and two little ones 3 and 1, I have my hands to full to even think of it!
