and they wonder why we don’t have pets


Like most preschool boys, our boys love building microcosms in order to escape, even if only figuratively. Well, today, after realizing our home’s extended period of silence (Blythe was napping), I decided to go and peek in on Liam and Burke; this is what I discovered. Although at first glance I was caught off guard by their relaxed presence amongst an apparent tomb of death, Liam quickly clarified these were merely their “pets.”
