On this St. Paddy’s Day I’d like to give a shout out to another Saint I know.
Thank you St. Bandit for not knowing that you are a dog.
You are truly a kind dude. We weren’t sure how this was going to go. You were our fake baby before we were ready to have a real one. So many couples have that dog. A big baby dog.
Considering the first couple weeks after Ben came home you laid on the day bed all day pouting.
Looking like you were about to record a country album.
Sometimes even letting out long yawn sighs. Refusing to make eycontact with me. But alas, we have worn you down. Now you put up with a toddler and you like it. So for that, we salute you.
I even believe that now you think you are Smudgy’s Mom. See! Everyone does get more comfortable the second time around!!
Every kid needs a pet.
Yes, I lifted Bandit into the crib so that him and Ben could hang out. Anything that makes Ben entertained for a half hour without me chasing him is a win. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Thanks Bandit for being the best sport.
So don’t forget to hug your dog today!
