A dog and his girl, some crafts, cooking, and a whole lot of nonsense...

This message is not approved by Lucy. Nope. Not one bit.

Much to Lucy's surprise the other night, she went to climb in her bed (shes been doing that a lot on her own since we moved. I think the kids just wear her out, and when she's had enough, she goes to bed,) and there was a small child in there!

Jonah is the youngest of Stephen's nephews that live with us.

Jonah is a funny kid. He loves the dogs but isn't quite old enough to take on some of the responsibilities with helping with the dogs that his older siblings have...he tends to let go of the leash when they pull and was caught giving them extra scoops of kibbles one evening because "they were more hungry," which I can't really fault him with, because Oscar acts like he's starving 99% of the time, even when he's just eaten!)
Anyway...here's Jonah in the crate. It's not the first time and I'm sure it won't be the last!
I'm very proud of Lucy for maintaining herself and not getting bitchy or bitey! She's come a long way in the two years that I've had her! She used to be so nasty and possessive about her blankets or her babies...this time she just went in there, saw that a small child had occupied her space, and turned around and vacated the premises. So proud of my girl!

Although in all fairness, I kinda started out as a grumpy YOUNG firefighter/EMT...

Throwin' it WAAAY back!

I was 19 in this picture.
I was in college for my paramedic degree.
I ate, slept and breathed the fire department.
Not saying that there aren't times when I miss it...but in 13 years, my priorities have changed so much.
Fire and Rescue will always be my first love...but I'm so ready for this career change and to get back to school!
