We received some sad news recently about a family pet. My husband’s parents were watching a family member’s pet dog when it escaped into traffic. It unfortunately died. When our kids heard the news they were upset about Scooby of course, but more by the fact that people they knew were upset. The kids made pictures to try give to Nana and Gramps to make them feel better. But my favourite part was my youngest’s plan
I’m going to go over and fix the dog, all by myself and Nana and Gramps will be happy again!
This whole episode also brought out a new ability in my son. He told me on the way to school that he can see from Earth to Heaven so he’ll be able to keep a watch on Scooby for everyone.
I love the way kids think. It’s too bad that as we age and grow in wisdom we also loose our sense of wonder.
