When we got our first dog I was home with 2 kids and the dog. Now I am working full-time with 4 kids, a dog AND a puppy. He really is cute and I know things will get easier but I am one tired puppy. Why didn’t anyone remind me that puppies don’t sleep through the night? He is up at 4:00 am raring to go! Then he has the nerve to fall asleep right before my alarm goes off at 6:30. The kids have been really good with Tucker and have helped out a lot but they have to get up for school, so it’s just me and the pup at 4:00 am. Big son stays up really late so he will hang out with Tucker between 11:00-2:00 but he seems to sleep at that time in general.
Still no job in site for big son and not one college application filled out. How do you make a child care about his future? Is there a trick? What did I do to foster such a lack of ambition? I can’t do this for him, he has to find his own way… He is 20 years old! It is so painful to watch him throw another year away. I think it may come to the point where we need to ask him to leave our home. It is to easy a life for him here, why try when every need is met? God please let him find himself soon.
