In which The Four-Year-Old tells it like it is

The loss of a pet is tremendously sad. But even in the most heart-breaking moments, life with The Four-Year-Old forces you to make room for laughter.

Scene: The animal clinic, moments after Mulberry’s death. Mommyo is cradling Mulberry on her lap as The Four-Year-Old and her father enter the room.

Mommyo, wistfully: “Look, The Four-Year-Old, Mulberry’s totally at peace, totally calm…”

The Four-Year-Old, practically: “And totally dead.”

About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
