Graham gets special privileges around here.
Each morning, the poet feeds the pups and lets them out while I snooze, mainly because he has always gotten up FAR earlier than I have, even when I had to squeeze IM training in before work.
After they have their breakfast and chew toy time, the girls hit their houses for a nap and Graham, because he is a spoiled baby, runs down the steps and jumps in bed with his mamas. And there we snuggle until I pry myself out of the bed to start the day.
It's one of the things I've missed the most about being in Colorado, and one of the things I am most thankful to have back. I've forgotten about how quickly he takes up the entire bed, stretching and kicking me in the kidneys until I move over. Or how he will suddenly sneeze violently, directly into my ear. Sometimes, if I don't have to be up early, I'll go get the girls and we'll all have a good pre-dawn session.
I'm so happy in Colorado already, I love it and I'm excited to complete this move, but life just hasn't been the same without my family.
But we're definitely going to need a bigger bed.
