Please?? I will take the best care of it!

00262963What does she want?  A kitten?  Yet another puppy?  Maybe something more manageable like a hamster or parakeet?  Nope.  She wants a seal.  She says that they will sleep together in the same bed together and that she would love her and take care of her so very well that I wouldn’t have to worry about a thing.

My more practically minded son has a better grasp on size, food and poop, which I appreciate.  He even reminds her that they eat penguins—a collective favorite animal in my home.   But she will not be dissuaded.  As a last plea, she offers to make it an outside pet.

What do you think?  Should I get a seal?


  1. Tell Madi, that God intended that seals belong in the water. She does not have a large enough space to keep a seal and make it happy. Instead how about a book report, some real digging into the computer library on seals, their habitat, what they like, how long they live, do they have families, and it goes on and on.


Thanks for taking the time to talk with me!
