Humane Society Trip

Madeleine's Brownie troop had a stellar idea for a field trip Wednesday night: the girls went to the Humane Society. Listen, if you have kids old enough for independent field trips with different Scout groups and the like do not, I repeat, do not let them go to the Humane Society or anything similar. All I have been hearing for the past twenty-four hours is, "Mom, can we get a dog? What? No?! Well, whhhhhhy noooooooot!?!?!?!?!?!"

Heaven help me if they wear me down.

Do NOT let them wear you down. Unless you really want a fourth child. Who never will grow out of diapers. And will think long walks on a winter day are fun. Even if you have the flu. Do NOT let them wear you down.

We took Michael's Wolf Pack last fall and I know your pain!! My bad move was bringing "the crew" along as well! ARGG. Eventually, they did stop asking daily and now it's a once a week occurrance.

Good Luck!

Oops..."Occurrence" :)

My problem would be that I would be one chaperoning that trip and I would be asking my kids if I could get a dog and they'd remind me that we can't have anymore pets because daddy would kill us. :)
