: Kai pics - her first week home!
: Ali March 15, 2008, 12:39:41 AM
Kai has settled in great this week. We couldn't be more pleased with her and how she has fit in to the family. It's a lot of work with the puppy and all four kids, so I'm rehoming MY KIDS (ha ha) next week for spring break! My dad and step mom are taking the kids for almost the whole week so I get to be alone with my pups and, well, myself! An actual "vacation" for the stay at home mom! But, I digress...

This is about Kai, who is awesome. Tani has become very protective of her, and was very grouchy at the dog park today to any dog that came too close to Kai! She wasn't agressive, just vocal. It was kind of cute, but kind of not, because people thought she was one of those vicious dogs, y'know? But they had fun. Someone brought an enormous intact male pittie into the dog area, and when he started tearing it up with a boxer in a sort of almost unfriendly way, everyone forgot about Tani's "leave my sister alone" noises.

Kai is doing great with potty training, and responds really fast when I correct her for mouthing or jumping. She sleeps all night long in her crate without a peep, and she has gotten much, much better about playing rough with my 2 year old. Things are awesome!

I love the pictures and am glad that Kai is adjusting so well.
On a side note, can I ship my 13 year old to your Dad and step-mom for a week? I swear if she rolls her eyes at me ONE MORE TIME...

LOL! My daughter is 8, and it's starting already, but I still have the authority power with her. One grounding and she's a different kid - at least until it happens again! My hubby still has to work, unfortunately, but we will be able to actually spend time together and relax. I'll miss my kids, but I am sooo excited to have a break!
