Okay you all know this commercial right?
Well, we put our son to bed a few nights ago around 8:00 to watch Star Wars before bed and we sat down on the couch to watch our shows.
We heard his footsteps coming down the stairs. He whispers, "Mooommmmy...." I come around the corner and say, "Noah you need to get back in bed."
NOAH: "Mooommmmy...why do people hurt animals?" I go up the stairs to get closer.....he had a stream of tears flowing over his cheeks.
Me: "Honey, I don't know why. I guess some people just don't love animals like you and me."
NOAH: "I want to save all the animals like on tv."
Me: "I know you do and we can try. If we see a hurting animal we will help it, okay?"
NOAH: "It makes me sad. That lady sang and it made me cry about animals being hurt."
Me: "That commercial makes me cry too honey. I love you Noah. Now back to bed." I walked him back to bed and turned off the tv.
I laid there with him and cuddled for a couple minutes just holding him. He is such a sweety and I want him to stay like that forever!! I will never forget his face, the look in his eyes, and the genuine concern he had for those abused animals.
Damn you Sarah Mclaughlin....you get me everytime I watch that commercial! But you don't have my money YET!! tahehehehehhe
