Well that was quick. Less than 24 hours after their emotional introduction, Sam has lost his first little pet.
Sam is handling it quite well...probably because he hasn't yet realized Stay Forever is dead. I'll tell him. I really will. I'm just working up the nerve.
He introduced his dead caterpillar to my parents today. He told them, "Stay Forever is really happy because I'm taking such good care of him." They played along.
Maybe I'll tell him tomorrow.
