    Sounds like my house. Except, I’ve got teenagers, and the minute I get in the door, they start with the questions. In the meantime, I can hardly hear them because both of the dogs are so happy to see me, they can’t stop barking. It doesn’t get any better, sorry!

    So true. We let our kids eat in front of the t.v. just so we can have adult conversation because once dinner is over it’s all about the kids until bedtime.
