As I’ve stated many times, my daughter is MUCH easier to watch than my son. Christopher is active and constantly moving. So he always wants to play football, or throw the baseball, or play basketball or jump on me or wrestle or tackle or any number of things that require me to cover my crotch. My daughter, on the other hand, is much nicer to play with!
Whether it’s getting my nails painted (toes only, please!) or getting my haircut or going to the doctor (I get lots of shots and earchecks), I don’t ever have to even move from the couch with Ava. As a matter of fact, the other day we played hide and seek and I didn’t move a muscle! She hid in the closet 3 times and I just waited for her to peek out and I would say “I see you!!” And that was the game!
Also with Ava, her best friend forever (BFF) is Barkley. No matter what torture she performs on our little Puff, he simply lies there and lets her curl his ears, hug him, kiss him and snuggle with him. He’s a great friend for her, considering there are no girls on our street for her to play with and daddy can only take so much makeup sessions and girl talk. He’s a great sport and she loves him dearly.
It’s great having a BFF. Even if he does lick his own butt and smells like…well…like a dog! LOL
