Just to clarify!

A few things to clean up from yesterdays post. Yes I am up almost (mostly) each night to take the mighty apollo out for a quick walk. He is almost 4 now and in the past he would sleep all night right between mommy and daddies pillows. He is a small dog and we have a really high bed, hence he can't get off of the bed by himself. Let's say about 2 years ago the beans was born. We were up every night in the middle of the night, and hey if we were up he was up and if he was up why not go out. I suppose that over time he has just developed this habit. To further reinforce this trend, when the beans started to talk she quickly learned that mommy and daddy were not that responsive when she yelled from her crib in the middle of the night. She would yell mommy, daddy, MOMMY - APOLLO, pollo, pollo. She had figured out that if she woke him up he would cry at the end of the bed till we got up. I would take him out, and on my way back up I would grab her and bring her to bed with mommy and daddy, win. I think this is just a learned behavior, and once she gets over the night terrors and stops waking up, so will he. It has been a viscious cycle for about 6 months now.

As far as the knees I will get into that in more detail, yet I tore my right ACL in 2000 and my left in 2004. I was playing basketball for both, and it pretty much sucked.

Happy friday.

Awww. It's sweet that Beans has Apollo trained. Apollo is cute!
ACL injuries are bad. Did you have surgery?

We are a "no one in the bed but us" type of couple. Hopefully the beans grows past the night terrors and the dog starts sleeping through the night. I feel bad for the beans that she is waking up crying and stuff. What do you think is causing it?

Awh, your little family is so cute. I have a feeling that the Beans may be used to getting what she niece is the same way. It's so hard to say no to such a cute face.

Sucks about the injuries. I don't know much about ACL injuries, but apparently they're bad (Sarcastically Bitter said so and she's a nurse. So, she knows what she's talking about!)

Isn't it amazing how much children know? There does come a point when we realize that our house is no longer ours :) Have a great weekend pj.
