logan made a pet rock at school today. i am unable to even post a picture of it here because he is currently napping with his new little friend. as we drove home this afternoon i hear logan say, "mommy brady is not being my friend." i respond, "brady why aren't you logan's friend?" i hear a quiet quivering voice in the back seat respond, "because logan did not bring me a pet rock." sniff, sniff, sniff.........
i then suggest as any mother would, "brady can we find the perfect rock when we get home and make you a pet rock just like logan's?" he responds, " that would be nice mommy."
once home we find the perfect rock, some sharpies in our drawer, a piece of felt for blankie and an old small gift bag for our pet carrier.
i wish all of life's problems were solved this easily. for now i have two new pet's in my house and thank goodness they don't require water or food because we already have our fair share of those. more importantly i have two little boys with smiles on their faces. sometimes the simplest of things in life are just enough.
