I made Pioneer Woman’s breakfast burritos, but without the tortilla this morning. And they loved them. I love all of your wonderful ideas. Thank you so much! I am going to try a bunch of them out, since I’d love for the kids to have a bunch of breakfast options.
If you know me well, outside of this blog, you know that I am passionate about dog rescue and that all three of my dogs are rescues. Having worked with weimaraner rescue and having a ton of friends who volunteer with rescues, I know that one of the most common reasons someone gives up their dog is because they’re having a baby.
Well, I’d like to urge those people not to, and here’s why…
We have 3 large, high energy dogs. When it comes to high energy dogs, weims are pretty high up on the list. Especially 2, 3 and 5 year old ones. A few weeks ago, when we came home, both kids were terrified of dogs. Screaming, clingy to us, needing to be picked up, terrified.
Now, my dogs are the kids’ best playmates. Seriously. So patient…
This is the one we call “Puppy”. 65lbs and very tall, still acts like a nutty puppy at 2 years old. No formal training whatsoever and little known kid experience. Laying there as they climb all over her and put blankets on her.
My dogs have been wonderfully intuitive with the kids. Patient beyond belief. I have to tell you, I really envy their patience when they can get put in a headlock all day by Ilya or when he tries to ride them like horses (Both of which he knows he should NOT do). Or how Nina came back so many times today, after getting up, not looking thrilled, but climbed up on the bed so she could turn into a blanket-wrapped babushka again.
