Well, Sammie became the newest addition to our family. We all fell in love with her, but just like taking care of a baby, a puppy is LOTS of work and responsibility. We broke the news to Kaitlyn (our 4-year-old) who is fine with it, but Connor (who's 8) is absolutely devasted. I feel just awful about it and now I feel like someone ripped my heart out.
Parenting is tough. Sometimes we make decisions thinking it'll be good for our children, but instead it ends up being the wrong decision (or, in our case, bad timing). Thank God our Father doesn't always give us what we want because He knows what's best and doesn't want to hurt us.
Girls, any thoughts? I haven't felt this torn and indecisive in a long time.
