After a pretty normal and routine Friday, we went over to babysit the kids so Lisa and David could have a date night. We had a lot of fun with them and the puppy. If the puppy is awake then Ashby is playing with him. Brooks likes him OK, but doesn't want the puppy anywhere near his dinosaurs!
They were both really good and went to bed when it was time without any problems. Brooks had to read two books before bed and he chose two books about dinosaurs. He likes the books that tell the :truth" about dinosaurs, not any of those silly made up stories about dinosaurs doing things like playing sports. The kid knows everything - it is absolutely amazing. He was even explaining about the different periods and which things were still alive and which became extinct. It was a lot of fun being taught by a 4-year-old!
Ashby, on the other hand, just wanted to cuddle when she went to bed. So, I just lay beside her on the bed and we talked a little. She also said her prayer and thanked Heavenly Father for the puppy. Then she explained that she is remembering to thank Him for the puppy every time she says a prayer. So sweet!
