poor poor Ruby

Yesterday morning, Harmony came downstairs. The look on her face was enough to tell me something was the matter. Her eyes welled with tears as she said, "Ruby died." I tried to make her feel better but I am not sure I did any good. Now, gecko's are not exactly rare around here. If she really wanted, she could have gone and caught 20 more. But she didn't. She wanted that one.

I am not the biggest animal person around. I admit it. But watching Harmony deal with this made me sad. Not because of the gecko but b/c Harm really cared about it. I also feel a tad guilty. Why? Because I kind of shrugged her off when she asked if we could go get some lizard food.

Being a Mom is never easy!!
