Waiting for the Bus
Miranda's bus brings her home at 3:30pm. This is the scene at my house as Baby and Daisy wait for her to come home. Isn't that sweet? They love her as much as she loves them. I think it is important for children to have pets. Pets teach us so much of the important things in life. They teach us to be gentle with things smaller than you. They teach responsibility, compassion, and they teach us to love, unconditionally.
Miranda and Anna have learned so much from this shaggy crew. Miranda does a great job of taking care of her cat. She cleans his litter box, and springs out of bed and makes sure he has food. She hugs and kisses him, and when I go grocery shopping, she lovingly picks out food he will like and treats. Anna will tell you SHE is Daisy's mom. That used to be me, but she feeds her and loves her as much as I do. Lately, Daisy has been MIA from 12:30-2:00. I went looking the other day. She lays on the floor next to Anna's bed as she naps. I guess they are taking an afternoon nap together.
I love these two critters like children. For the times they have been stepped on, carried around when they didn't want to be, lost fur, and been played with too hard, they have quickly forgiven the girls. That's what I am talking about. Loyalty and love. Bark when the bus is out front Daisy.
