One of my favorite bloggers and new found e-mail friend, Helene, from I'm Living Proof That God Has a Sense of Humor, posted recently about how to deal with the death of a pet with kids. The post was amazing and had great tips, but had also made me appreciate the animals we have a little bit more. Your relationship and appreciation changes once you have kids since priorities change.
So head on over. You will be addicted to her blog with her humor and honesty with parenting and life.
