Life Cycle

Hey there-

Some of you might notice (but probably not) that in the "About Me" section of my blog there has been an update. The snake, Pluto, died a few weeks ago and two new kitties have joined the family. The kittens were a family gift for the Solstice and have been a wonderful addition.

The sad thing is that the kids get more upset about feeding their WebKinz animals on time than they did when Pluto died.

I think Arthur's reaction was; "Pluto's dead? Oh, can I go on the computer?"

What compassion. I have actually had to remind the boys that they have real live animals in the house that need to be fed and cared for.

So, lessons on the life cycle are alive and well here at our house. Here's hoping that the obsession with WebKinz dies quickly.

Thanks for checking in-



  1. Well, it's official, I am totally and completely addicted to your blog. Thank you so much for commenting on mine, I feel like I have found a long lost friend. I will be e-mailing you soon with some questions in hopes of some of your life experience.
    Thank you for sharing your life with us!

  2. I love this entry especially because I was there to witness Arthur caring for both his real and virtual pets! The kittens are sooo adorable. I have a photo I'll email you!

    Was at Outpost today and ran into Less, "You've got your glow back." Please blog about that soon! It's such a great story and concept - getting your glow back. His response was, "And she REALLY did!"

    Looking forward to reading next chapter so that I'm not stuck in Dark Days! :)
