If Dogs/Babies Made The Rules:

I just pulled this from a friend's quote page. She doesn't say where she got it from but I thought that it was pretty cool. Hers talks only about dogs but the same could be said for babies. So here goes:

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
The Boy will often crawl up to the baby gate at the top of the stairs with a HUGE grin on his face to say hi to me or Musical Daddy as we walk in the door.

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.

Take naps.

Stretch before rising.

Run, romp, and play daily.

Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
One little squawk and I learn better than to eat something in front of him that he wants but can't have. Like mint chocolate chip ice cream. Although if he can't have it, I won't give it to him. Musical Daddy is a bit of a sucker in that regard.

On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
Or, get next to Mommy a lot and hit her up for milk.

When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
And laugh out loud, with big grins.

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.
That's certainly our boy! And I hope that he continues to eat the way that he does, because his habits are very healthy! We've never measured his meals.

Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you're not.

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
Baby hugs make EVERYTHING better.

Be always grateful for each new day.
