On Funerals for Hamsters and Spring
My boys are very sensitive and a bit morbid at times I think (maybe that's just a boy thing.) J has started the "I don't want you to die Mommy" thing and asking about death and dying and God etc. that happens when kids turn four (at least in my experience.) So today, Choo Choo train is truly dead and we had to have a hamster funeral. I expected real tears, but there were none. Max was really sad and made up a little "burying the hamster" song to sing at the service, Jac joined in and it was very touching (except for the almost 12 yr old sister laughing in the background.) Then- "Let's go jump on the trampoline" could be heard.
Here is the grave they made for his furriness...
Spring is making it's entrance, and it is a beautiful day (even for a hamster funeral.)
