(Yep, yet another Parker post.)
Husband noticed that I have been very relaxed lately. He tells me he has not heard me screaming at the kids or getting angry at them recently.
Hmp. It’s just that the kids are off school and there are no tests and quizzes to stress over, I retort with an eye roll.
He thinks otherwise. It must be Parker, he says.
Well, he could be right. I mean, I’ve been preoccupied lately with this doggy. The kids and I bond together walking, grooming and just playing with our new baby. And doing these stuff seem to give an over-all feel-good vibe to me.
Pets seem to have that stress-relieving effect. In fact holistic health practitioners recommend pet therapy. Among the benefits include prolonged life, reduced stress-induced symptoms, and decreased need for medical care. For those who are lonely and longing for companionship, pet therapy may work better than going to free dating online sites! Because pets are non-judgmental, and give unconditional love.
What do you think?
I think I agree with husband. Parker is turning me into a gentler, more patient tiger mom. 😀
