Any ideas? Sam is still in the dark on this one. I'm priming the pump--or at least trying to. Last night we had this conversation:
Sam: "Mommy, can we keep Stay-Forever forever?"
Me: "Not forever, Honey. All pets die at some point."
Me: "Well, sometimes pets get sick, or they're just really old and they die."
Sam: (Big smile) "Well Stay-Forever is a NEW pet. He's not old. So he won't die."
Before he went to bed he placed Stay-Forever's jar on my dresser and said, "You can sleep with him tonight, Mommy. That way if you wake up you'll be able to see him."
And during his bedtime prayer he thanked God for his new pet.
You're killing me, Smalls.
