With that in mind, this is a conversation that Lauren and I had not too long ago:
Lauren: "Mom, what is your favorite kind of animal?"
Alecia: "A Stuffed Animal."
Lauren: "Besides a stuffed animal, what is your other favorite kind of animal?:
Alecia: "A Crystal Animal."
Lauren: "Mom, besides a crystal or stuffed animal, what is your favorite kind of animal?"
Alecia: "A Photo of an Animal."
I know. I am lame, but after the past few weeks, I think I will have a new reply to her frequently asked question.
"Mom, can we have a pet?"
My new answer:
"Yes.....you can "have" the pet baby bunnies that live under our front porch!"
