No, we don't have a dog...
...and *obviously* children are very different from dogs. But my family always had a dog when I was growing up, and I can't help but be amused by the similarities that present themselves at times.
"No Honey, don't eat the garbage!"
"Anne, I really think it's a bad idea for you to crawl under my chair like that..." *thwack* "WAHHHHHHHHHH!"
"If you're going to act like that on the couch, you're going to have to sit on the floor!"
"Uh oh, what's that smell? Oh God, what's that *on the floor*?!"
"Anne spit up, let me wipe...No, no, don't play in it!!"
"Anne, no, let me have that. No, NO, that can't go in your mouth..."
And my personal favorite:
"It's too quiet in here, what on earth are they up to?!"
