me: uh oh.
kid: Bumblebee got all dry. Inna shell.
me: ew?

note to preschools everywhere: maybe more robust pets are in order.
note to remaining turtle: watch your back.

Ha ha ha, oh no! This is sad but his discussion about it is cracking me up. I love that he gave you a hug. What a great kid.

Oh, so sweet and sad! He's precious.

Regarding more robust pets, I'll just say this: Clary B. was made to play the role of a fire droid in this morning's installment of Star Wars: The Backyard War. My 4-y.o. was all, "Nooooo! The fire droid is coming! We must defend from the enemy attacker!"

Poor child care pets.
