Responsible enough for a Fake Cat
When we got home from my parents' house on Sunday, Sophia had only one square left to fill in her resposibity chart in order to procure her kitty. Not unlike any other evening, a dilemma arose for her. I don't even remember what the issue was, but she had the choice between responding with calm disappointment or violent fury. Normally her response would be violent fury in her room, followed by calm disappointment in our presence. However, this particular evening, she chose to skip the first step and head straight to resignation. I know that doesn't sound like the biggest deal ever, but to the parent of a 3 1/2 year old, it's a VERY big deal. So in order to reward that particularly "responsible" choice, we filled in the square, celebrated and headed out to get Lulu the Kitty.
Their union was blissful. As of 24 hours later, they're still enamored. The cat has freaked us out a couple of times with the meowing and rolling around, but all in all, it's a great purchase.
Sophia took this picture to record her first night at home.
