Having kids means you’re going to have times when your sides split with laughter over an unintentional turn if phrase.
Last week, my mother-in-law sent us a few Disney DVDs. Among them was “Lady And The Tramp”, and it came in handy when our dog died last Saturday. We all watched it as a family to help with our grief. Simon, our dog, had been a tramp before we adopted him.
Today, G found a picture of Lady in a Disney alphabet book that A was looking through. He couldn’t remember her name, so I started quizzing him to see if he could. The conversation went something like this:
G: Dad! There’s the dog from that movie!
Me: Oh yeah! What’s her name?
G: I don’t know.
Me: What’s the letter on the page say?
Me: So her name begins with an L sound. Do you remember her name? It’s in the name of the movie.
Me: What’s another name for a woman?
Me: Bwahahahahahahahaha! (Pause) the title was “Blank And The Tramp”.
It’s all about how quickly you recover.

I guess I should have read this post before commenting on the last one. So sorry about your loss. Our pets are our children. It’s never easy when we lose them but the innosence of a child definitely reminds us that healing is possible. God bless you all as you heal.
