It’s funny how relationships work, when you’re in the throes of a bad one no one tells you “it shouldn’t be this much work”. Not to say that good relationships aren’t work, because they are, but when you are in a good relationship it’s a different kind of work.
Happy Two Year Anniversary eve Aidan 😀
Also known as realizing being a human mom will be, lets say, interesting.
Since we’ve adopted Finch I’ve realized I am the type of mom that is compulsive. I have been compulsively researching dog foods, dog toys, dog training, dog shampoo’s, etc.
Last Thursday Aidan and I adopted a dog from the ASPCA, kind of on a whim. First off, let me say I would never advocate for you to adopt a dog or any animal for that matter without planning for it, thinking about it, and researching it. Pets change your life and you can’t just return them if they don’t work out. That being said I always knew we would get a dog eventually and Aidan and I had talked about costs and lifestyle changes a bit, we even signed up to foster ASPCA dogs, but we had decided that we were okay with putting off full blown adoption for a bit, Aidan has never had a dog, and although he wanted one someday we hadn’t settled on when that would be.
