At two, Punky is firmly in the toddler years. It was tricky, at first, parenting a toddler. The toddling is a game changer. But you adapt, move all the breakable a to an even higher location, block off the stairs, put the child thingies (yes, that IS the technical name) on the doorknobs and so on. The toddler gets steadier and less toddly. Life is good. Life is fun. Life is an adventure.
Then you do something crazy. Like have another baby. Or in my case, adopt a puppy. And life as you know it is over. A puppy is like having an infant. Getting up in the middle of the night (to let the dog out instead of feeding a baby. But let's face it, getting up in the middle of the night for any reason isn't fun). Having a puppy is like a toddler- most of the time you can't reason with them. Puppies chew a lot- like teething babies. They sleep a lot too, just not when you want them to!
But it's fun too. Watching your pup follow around your kid. Hearing the kid ask about the puppy. Knowing they'll be best buds if only you survive the next year.
You never know what you are going to come home to find. Like the picture below of a naked Princess baby and a play spoon hanging with the pot holders...
