And just like that, summer is gone. It was here one day and gone the next. Today has been a cold and rainy day. Just when it starts to let up, I think, “let’s go outside.” and then it starts back up again. But I do love it because the leaves are starting to change, and I’m starting to stock up on my favorite hot cocoa:)
Inside days mean finding a way to keep not just Rosie and Atticus preoccupied, but a big, non city dog too! Chauncey loves the cold, wet mud, but our apartment doesn’t. So David tries to find a few 20-30 minute windows when the rain lets up to take him on a walk. After that, it’s keeping not 2, but 3 kids (including Chauncey) from getting bored while stuck in-doors. Today we all just played around in the Rosie’s nursery with Chauncey and his new Trolls Pet Fans Collection toys which are exclusively available from Petco and inspired by the DreamWorks Animation Trolls movie.
A couple days ago Chauncey got a hold of, and destroyed the cutest little teddy bear in an alligator suit that we got earlier in the year when we went to Florida. We figured that was a sign that it was probably time to get him some new toys:) So we got him these. Chauncey’s three favorites are: Trolls Cooper Plush Large Dog Toy, Trolls Branch Plush with Rope Dog Toy and Trolls Guy Diamond Plush Medium Dog Toy!
Last Christmas we got him the Dr Seuss Grinch ones from Petco too and he loved them, because they look like stuffed animals, which he obviously loves, but have pretty much indestructible rope arms and legs! Definitely keeps him busy on inside days.
I’m sure we’ve all heard the expression “Happy wife, happy life.” But on a rainy day, “Happy kids and dog, happy life.” 🙂
