It's Going to BEE Okay

Happy Sunday!
I'm having a quiet morning which is very relaxing, and well, to be honest, rare. Sometimes I feel like I'm running a doggie daycare. We have two 4-year-old Pit Bulls who are absolutely amazing. We also have a 6-month-old Great Dane. Since he has come into our lives, mornings have been chaos. It's better though. It used to be worse in the mornings. He's still a puppy. Still gets really excited when they are released from their wrap around, open top, corral in the mornings. He jumps everywhere, barks, just being his happy puppy self. He is quite huge already, and doesn't know his own strength, so he plays a little too rough with his older sisters, which causes more barking. BUT, all of our babies are sweet and loving, and I can't imagine my life without them. I will admit though, sometimes I think I'm going to pull my hair out. It will get better. This morning, they are all laying in the den napping. It's quiet, and I'm soaking it all in with a smile on my face.

Anyway, that's not why I wanted to post today.
