Hubby: "Can you put Nellie up?" (our 60lb Weim that we allow to snuggle in our bed each night before we go to sleep)
Me: "How do I keep getting stuck putting her up" (As I try to pull her legs out from under the covers, this dog never wants to leave the bed)
Hubby: "Because you have to get up to use the bathroom again anyway"
Me: "Fine, but you better not pass out in the next 2 seconds, bc she's gotten to where she won't budge at all, and I can't lift her out of the bed in my current state, She's so obstinate."
Hubby: "Well that makes 4 of us...(referring to our dog, me, himself, & our son)
Me: "Ha, so true"
Hubby: "Maybe this baby boy will be less obstinate, you know-calmer, easy going, not too opinionated or stubborn..."
Me: (Huge Laugh) "yeah right, its in our genetic make up...he will be born obstinate!"
