Private pooper

you’re liking my catchy blog title arent you? ha ha. although I am a private pooper, being pregnant taught me to get over myself so I am no longer. After all what privacy and/or dignity do you have left after you have a kid? lol

NO- my blog title is not about me. Its about Otter. He’s a private pooper. I have been walking him in the mornings and some evenings to get out of the house and have some (for real) alone time. I often take a cup of coffee with me and make sure I finish it before I come back. THat way I am fueled and ready ha ha. Back to Otter- he is such a great dog. I do not know how we are ever going to replace him. It makes me sad that dogs dont live as long as us. Especially when you have one like O-boy (what we call him sometimes) or Bo Bo (thats what Ana Claire calls him).

On our walks I have found a spot that he is sure to drop his load everytime. He has a couple places, but this is our place. Its in some thick brush and trees, high weeds and sticks. Well tonight, I wanted to see if i was correct in that Otter was a private pooper- so I stayed in open areas. Well friends, he refused to go until he couldnt bear it. I caved in a stopped near the bushes and tall tree in front of our door. In order to get the MOST private spot he pulled me deep into the bush as he was attempting to find the spot. It made me laugh as he nestled in and turned around to face outward…always in “watch dog” mode. ha ha. SO yes, Otter is a private pooper, and it made me smile today.

 

Since the kiddos have been sleeping, and even though Jason is home, I am feeling a little sad tonight. Not depressed, not crying sad, just like “reality hit me that life is happening” sad. I have been praying that God would help me to daily value each moment as if it was the last moment I had….I guess its working! Its so easy for me to understand now when you hear an elder person say, “you wake up and youre kids are grown and youre old”. At the same time its hard for me to imagine Ana being 5, Lexi being 2…..and this is in the mere future!  This kind of feeling makes me want to hold Ana or Lexi (or both) all night long even if it means I fall asleep in the recliner or rocking chair. I just dont want to let go of these memories so quickly….

I always seem to find a song that correlates with how I am feeling or what I am reading that day. Here is todays- its super good… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MggNFU0_4Fs The lyrics are below. Its a great song, way to Go Taylor Swift.

 

Ok thats it for today. Love to you all 🙂

 

Never Grow Up lyrics
Songwriters: Swift, Taylor;

Your little hands wrapped around my finger
And it’s so quiet in the world tonight
Your little eyelids flutter ’cause you’re dreaming
So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light

To you, everything’s funny
You got nothing to regret
I’d give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that

Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
It could stay this simple

I won’t let nobody hurt you
Won’t let no one break your heart
No, no one will desert you
Just try to never grow up, never grow up

You’re in the car on the way to the movies
And you’re mortified your mom’s dropping you off
At 14, there’s just so much you can’t do
And you can’t wait to move out someday and call your own shots

But don’t make her drop you off around the block
Remember that she’s getting older, too
And don’t lose the way that you dance around
In your PJs getting ready for school

Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
It could stay this simple

No one’s ever burned you
Nothing’s ever left you scarred
And even though you want to
Just try to never grow up

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room
Memorize what it sounded like when your dad gets home
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said
And all your little brother’s favorite songs

I just realized everything I have
Is someday gonna be gone

So here I am in my new apartment
In a big city, they just dropped me off
It’s so much colder than I thought it would be
So I tuck myself in and turn my night light on

Wish I’d never grown up
I wish I’d never grown up

Oh, I don’t wanna grow up, wish I’d never grown up
Could still be little
Oh, I don’t wanna grow up, wish I’d never grown up
It could still be simple

Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling, don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
It could stay this simple

Won’t let nobody hurt you
Won’t let no one break your heart
And even through to you want to
Please try to never grow up

Don’t you ever grow up
(Never grow up)
Just never grow up
