We’ve had a house full of teenagers this weekend and the conversation turned to siblings and one 13 year old looked less than impressed at the idea of having a much younger sibling. The conversation that follows had me rolling on the floor at the honest love expressed
Me: “Let me ask you this – if your little brother was hit by a bus, would you be sad?”
Visiting child “…….yes.”
Me: “Hmmm……If your puppy was hit by a bus, would you be sad?”
Me: “You hesitated before you answered the first time…”
VC: “Well, my puppy is *adorable*”.
When I say honest love, I meant love for her new puppy, not for a slightly irritating toddler.
