The other day Baci started barking at one of the cats (as dogs often do). Then we heared Yago (at the top of his lungs):
BACI! BE! QUIET!! BACI!
Time to stop yelling at the dog.
The kid is watching every step (and misstep). Just the other day I saw him trying to open something with his teeth! (oops).
Luckily, he’s learning good habits from us too. He’s learning to spit out the toothpaste, he loves to help me put wet clothes into the dryer, put away the dishes. More and more he’s saying please or thank you without prodding. And every once-in-a-while, when we least expect it he’ll shout out “I LOVE you!”
Here’s to 27 more days without yelling at the dog and the road to other fine habits for the new year.
