It has been a while since I shared a story with you. You have been learning so quickly that is difficult to keep up. Yesterday though, you just did something so dang cute that I have to share this memory! You ran up to Anna (our new puppy) as she was sleeping against the wall to look out the window. You proceeded to say “I am sorry Anna!”

Whether you meant it when you said you were sorry or not I have no idea. My guess is that you did mean it, you tell Anna you love her all the time. You give her giant bear hugs and kisses before bed. You want to play with her so badly that you get just a bit to rough and she ends up running away.

Sorry - The Rookie Dad

None of this is your fault, you are still learning how to play with Anna. We adopted her because you needed a play pal and I am confident she will become that for you. Until then I will continue to help you play with her so she knows that you won’t hurt her.

You have learned when to say “I am sorry” which is a trait that your mother and I appreciate. You are not acting out in a malicious way, you are just being a two and a half-year old.


I love you,

    Love this post and picture. I have bad news for you though: my son is 6 and we are still working on always being kind to our dogs. It is a lot better than when he was 2 and a half, but he still needs reminders!
