Why is it so hard to say NO to your kids?

Well, I find it very hard to say NO to my kids when I know that it is something that means alot to them! So this post is about my oldest son, Andrew that is 15. Some weekends, Andrew goes to his Dad's house. Now I will not get on the subject of his dad because it is hard for me to say nice things there! :) But for Andrew's sake I always keep my mouth shut! Anyway, Andrew had a dog over at his dad's house and his dad called yesterday and said that Andrew would have to get rid of the dog because HE wanted to get one for HIMSELF! Now Andrew usually doesn't ask for alot but he got really upset about having to get rid of the dog because he is attached to it. So................Seeing him so upset, I told him he could bring the little dog home! So late last night his Dad brought out the dog.

So here is "Smokey" our latest addition to the family. He is really sweet and loveable. It is funny, he is 2 yrs old, and weighs 2lbs and 2oz. Very tiny little poodle.




Right now he is a little nervous since it is a different place but he will be fine in a few days. Donkey wants to play with him but I think he is afraid of Donkey. Here he only weighs a little over 2lbs and Donkey weighs 14lbs! But it makes me happy to see my son so HAPPY!!!
