Who wants to grow up?

I like to play hide and seek with my dogs. I'll chase them down the hall trying to tickle them on their backs and grabbing at their tails. While there running down the hall, I'll switch back and run through the kitchen into the bathroom and hide in the shower. I then start to let out a little whistle.

Pound, Pound, Pound, Here come my dogs down the hall, slipping and scratching on the kitchen tile floor as they try to run as fast as they can slipping the whole way. At this point I stay really quite. They run into the bathroom and out the other end into the quest bedroom.

I peek at them out of the shower curtain. They have stopped with their body stiff, Tails sticking straight out, Their ears perked up waiting for me to whistle again.
Then I let out a little whistle and two little snouts come poking themselves into the shower. I then yell and they prance up and down, I pet them and scratch them behind the ear and say, Good boy!! You found me. I then do it all over again and find a new place to hide.

Sometimes they don't fall for my tricks and they catch me before I can hide and I yell out giggling and laughing as their tails are whiping with excitement, and their front paws dance up and down, Tongue's hanging out of their mouths. I was playing this little game the other morning, Laughing and giggling, yelling and screeching as they chase me around the house, When my neighbor knocked on my door.
I answered the door a little out of breath, "Sorry, Just playing with my dogs!" He laughs and says, "Some people never grow up."
If that could only be true!!

I play the same games with my dogs. So I totally understand. Anyone watching would probably think I am nuts!! I am so glad your pregnancy is going well. Each time you post I sigh relief that all is well. Hopefully now that you've made it past the "scary first trimester" it will be smooth sailing.

Love ya!! Can't wait to see this little one!
