This past Wednesday our friends went out of town and needed someone to watch their puppy Basil. (See picture below, and yes, I stole this picture from our friend's blog) As you can tell, she really is a cute pup and we have had a really good time with her. However, she is A LOT OF WORK! Most of this is probably due to the fact that Nate is immobile and Lyla is a little sick and I'm just a little spread thin. AND the fact that Basil is in her puppy stage and is very active so it has been a change from my quiet, calm little home to a crazy one. I don't know how my friend does it. She must be super-mom and can probably do pretty much do anything!
Anyway, we're not planning on getting a puppy or anything but I've got to be honest, this is making me a LITTLE nervous for when we have a second child. I know puppies and babies are two completely different things but still, I think both require a lot of time and effort. I really don't know which would be more difficult! Nate and I aren't planning on having another baby any time soon but when we do, I hope I'll be able to handle it all (and have a non-injured husband, haha!).
Anyway, like I said, we really have enjoyed having Basil here and it has been fun to have a puppy to play with. So, overall, good experience and good birth control :)
