Raising Dogs and Toddlers

November 24, 2013  •  10 Comments

Before having a child, I thought that raising one would be pretty similar to raising a dog.  

Well, besides the fact that dogs shed way more, I was TOTALLY right.

Here's the photographic evidence...in list format:

 

1)  Their puppy dog eyes are killer...and they never hesitate to use them.

2)  Spontaneity is their middle name.

3)  They get hours of entertainment out of small things (that are typically free of cost).

4)  They have no proper-ness filters.

5)  They know how to relax in the sun after a day of work and play.

6)  Their 'not guilty' faces are sub-par.

7)  The 'big' bed is a highly coveted location.

8)  Sharing does not come easily.

9)  Curiosity wins out more often than not.

10)  They live for the creation of chaos...and then revel in it.

11)  They are tolerant of each other...

12)  They long to play outside.

13)  Table scraps and crumbs are no match for them.

14)  They are totally oblivious at times.

15)  They know how to make others happy.
