Bad influences

I am a bad influence on children and dogs. I don't even own any dogs. But it's true. When I see a happy puppy, I want to play with it, get it riled up and excited you know, not calm and sedate like many people like their dogs. I don't mind puppy kisses, and I kind of want to give them treats for no good reason other than the fact that they are dogs and therefore awesome. I inject chaos into the lives of dog owners.

And with our kids it's much the same. I like to rile them up, play with them until they are giggling and out of breath and absolutely fired up. I'm the person who taught them how to pillow fight. I taught them that beds were bouncy, that splashing is fun and we all know most kids don't need encouragement to splash in puddles.
