Puppies and a Party

So while texting a friend last night she so kindly reminded me that I have not been keeping up with that and to some extent its not my fault but seriously I can just be that lazy. Working 10 hour days by the time I get home I really just want to lay on the couch and do absolutely nothing until I go to sleep and get up to do it again the next day. That is however not an excuse, so this is me trying to keep up with it again. (Not gonna lie I will probably be confessing this often.)

Something big has happened in my life recently as well as the family I nanny. This past weekend we both inquired new dogs. My roomate and best friend went to a shelter with a friend here in Alpharetta and ended p sending me a picture of this little puppy and a few minutes later she was adopting it. Or should  I say we since we are doing this together and sharing all of the responsibilities. Milo is a 2 month old Terrier Mix and full of spunk and life and lots of cries in the middle of the night. We are in the midst of crate training him and teaching him to sleep in the kitchen through the night which has resulted in two very tired working girls and I am sure some neighbors who are not so happy. Other then that he is a great dog and goes to the bathroom outside 80% of the time which is nice and very playful. The day after we got little Milo the Furr family took a trip and got their 2nd dog Chester who is a 3 year old yellow colored dog. I am not really sure what kind of dog he is but he is much more active then their older dog Annie and so its been a process getting use to the house changing. The kids have to take Chester out every day for at least 30 minutes to play with him and he is not allowed in the front yard with the fear that he might run away. This is not an easy task as if he is outside and get in the van to go the garage door has a doggie door on the bottom and he is out and running around and I have to coerce him back into the back yard before we can go anywhere. Not a task I signed up for but I guess its all in a days work, we just leave a good 10 minutes early from now on.

Today was my first birthday party with the kids, and I am sure the longer I am with them I will be attending plenty more. The party was for a set of twins in WJ class who are completely adorable and have a bigger sister who is 8 and AG's best friend so all of the parents know each other and the mom has been super sweet with helping me get adjusted. The party was at a place called Catch Air which is kind of like a Monkey Joes or if you dont know what that is a big playroom with slides, inflatables, and anything a kid could want to play with. Its like a dream and the kids and I frequent there often. This was my first time meeting a lot of the other moms in WJ class so I was kind of excited to get to know names and faces so I dont look so distant when I swoop in to pick up the kids three days a week. After the kids played their heart out and I got to read a good chunk of The Help we headed into the party room for Chick Fil A (SCORE!) and cake. All in the all the kids had a great time and it was nice to converse with moms and realize that the kids I nanny are just like a lot of the other kids out there.

I guess thats it for now, tomorrow is Friday which makes me happy because my plans this weekend include catching up on sleep and cleaning my room (which everyone knows is a constant task that never gets completed).
