Last week we watched a neighbor's dog while they went on vacation (well it was a road trip to visit family in Montana so not a real vacation, but anyway). The dog stayed with us for 6 days. Our yard is fully fenced in and I love dogs. It's really nice to be able to have a dog for a week. The kids are thrilled. And by the end of the week they don't care about the dog as much. The excitement of having a dog has worn off. It's like renting a dog for a week and then being able to give it back!
Today I was preparing to mow the lawn. I cleaned up a few firework debris. And I scooped up all the dog poop. My 5 year was watching me. He was going to make sure that he didn't have to touch the poop. He asked me why I was "picking up" the dog poop. I explained how I wanted the yard to be clean. He then asked, "How are you going to clean up all of the pee?"
Honey, I think that's your job.
