Someone told me that a dog is harder than having children. Her reasoning? Because you can take kids with you everywhere you go. Hmm. A dog is easier than having a baby. After having thought about it, I wonder, should I be offended? I am a stay at home mom, to kids, a baby and a toddler. I don't have a dog, I am not a stay at home dog-carer. And would a dog be harder? I haven't owned my own dog as an adult yet. But we did have one as I grew up and I am going to say that taking care of kids, much harder than a dog. Here are my reasons.
1. A child, you have to shepherd their heart. A dog, you have to train them to pee and poop outside and not chew things.
2. A child, you have to take with you everywhere you go. It is illegal to leave them home caged up.
3. I wipe poop off their butts, enough said.
4. I make milk for them and let them suck it out of me, do you do that for your puppy?
This is just a small list, I am sure there are others that I can't think of right now. As I reread this, I am thinking, I can't believe I am even defending myself that children are harder to take care of than dogs.
