A Day in the Life of a Tiger

This is Freeze. His real name is Freeze For Cats, but Big B calls him Freeze for short. This morning, Big B had the somewhat sneaky notion (that I didn't discourage) to tiger-nap Freeze and carry him to school in his backpack. We were almost to his kindergarten door when Big B realized Freeze never made it out of the house. Tears were shed at the thwarting of this brilliant master plan. I promised Big B that little b and Mama would take good care of Freeze, and that he would go wherever we went for the whole day.

And here is Freeze's day.

When little b and I picked up Big B, there Freeze was, safely buckled in his car seat. Big B smiled, then I saw a hint of sadness creep in as he remembered that things didn't go as he'd hoped...and then I handed him the camera. His face absolutely lit up at seeing our day from the perspective of his special friend. A happy reunion, indeed.

Awwww... What a sweet story, and a great chance for Big B to learn how to accept things as they are. Nice work mama.

Looks like Freeze had a great day. Glad you were able to sneak him into the park, since he missed school.
