I have a dog. And I have kids. I see few similarities between them.
1. My dog spent the entire morning locked in a bathroom.
2. My kids did not.
I wasn't able to be more cordial when you were clearly just trying to make (insane) small talk with me.
Perhaps because my littlest baby has been sick and fell asleep in my arms for the first time since she was tiny I was feeling a little punchy. Perhaps because we were only there because there was no toilet paper in our house and I had 3 kids bundled up with fevers and colds, I just couldn't cope with small talk.
Here she is, my sweet third HUMAN child. Nothing like a dog. Just saying.
