I feel the humans now – it’s hard being a good parent!
Mom says for me to hang in there and once Bashful gets his ‘baby phase’ behind him he will be better. I’m not sure that’s possible. And what if I’m doing this all wrong? What if he turns out like his dad, a rolling stone, or gets involved in a bad rock band?
Sometimes I feel like I never get enough rest. Having kids is hard! I feel like a zombie pig on same days and just go through the motions so I can finally get back in bed. It does get better, right?
I’ve been so tired lately that I even gave mom a hard time last night. I was being fussy with her and she understands. She sat me down and we talked about it. It’s all about love. I feel better after our talk and took a nap. Mom helped out with Bashful for a little bit and took him for a walk. He was a lot better afterwards too. I guess she wore him out because when they got back, he was out like a light and slept a solid 8 hours for a change. That was such a relief!
Bashful is doing better. He’s gotten accustomed to living at the Hotel Thompson. He’s practically house trained now and doesn’t have any accidents. He rolls around the house and plays with the purr things a lot. Sometimes he gets a little rough and I have to break things up. He got into the cereal the other night and ate an entire box of Fruity Pebbles. It was all over the floor. But this little hoover cleaned everything up before mom went into the kitchen. The hard part is trying to keep him on a schedule. And, dad has taught him Rock, Paper, Scissors. Shakes head, he always picks paper for some reason.
So my friends, help me out here. Any words of encouragement for raising Bashful to be the best “s t o n e” he can be? Thanks my friends – XOXO – Bacon
