“My little dog - a heartbeat at my feet.” ~Edith Wharton

The other night, after putting Quinn to bed, Matt and I were lounging in our usual spots in the living room …catching up on all of our favorite shows. Then, all of a sudden, we heard the most disturbing noise through Quinn’s monitor. For a second, my heart dropped!!! Was he choking? How in the world could he be making that noise? And…within moments, it hit us…it HAD to be Kia. … You see, she ALWAYS follows us into his room as we put on his jammies and sweetly lays on the floor while I read him stories and tuck him in. She’s done it since he was brand new! … But, this evening, Matt had put Quinn to bed and he wasn’t used to having to ask Kia to follow him out.

So, guess what…she stayed! She never whined or scratched at the door and Quinn never made any indication that she was there. Maybe they were both thrilled that she had FINALLY gotten away with staying behind. And, when we quietly opened Quinn’s door, we found our sweet boy and our sweet Kia all cuddled up together. We snapped a few pics before we carried her to her own bed! We debated letting her stay, but figured she would eventually disturb Q’s sleep…which would disturb ours! … But, for the hour (ish) that they got away with it, it sure was sweet! beginning of Jan 020beginning of Jan 021

So funny and sweet! We accidentally leave Max (our dog) in the kids rooms every once in a while but he always gives himself away trying to jump into their beds. He's a lab and their rooms are all upstairs...we'll hear a few loud thuds and figure out whose room he is in and thakfully it has always been before they're asleep!
