You have to do what you have to do.

As a parent sometimes you have to tell little white lies so to speak. Baby E is just like her mama, she wears her little heart on her sleeve just as I do. My mother in law had a dog that baby E loved but we had to re-home her because to was too much for my mother in law to handle. My Bestie took snuggles and baby E knew this. In July of 2019 on our way back from a family trip, we received the worst news possible that my mother in law had passed away. Baby E took this very hard, as did the rest of us and to this day she is still struggling with the fact that her grandma who has had her since I went back to work after she was born until she was in school fulltime is gone. I would say it was about 6 months or so after my mother in law passed that I got a message from my bestie that snuggles passed away too. Revis and I could not bring ourselves to tell our child, who is still struggling with the fact that her grandmother is gone, but now her grandmothers dog passed too. So we left it alone, if she would bring it up, we would change the subject, if she asked for pictures, I would tell I would ask my bestie to send some but would always come up with a reason as to why pictures were not sent. And believe me, we we’re going to tell her that snuggles had passed because she kept asking about the dog, that is until her hamster Chubby Chubberson passed away and Revis had to bury it in the back yard. So, the other night I noticed a guy walking his dogs and one of them looked a lot like snuggles, so I stopped the car and asked the guy if I could take a picture of his dog, I could tell he had an odd look on his face, so I quickly explained why and he said sure. After I took the pictures I texted them to the besties asking her to send them back to me so that I can show baby E. She immediately resent them back to me asking that I show baby E and was sorry she couldn’t send them sooner. Baby E was over the moon. Revis and I know that eventually we will have to tell her that the dog passed away, but because of a guy walking his dog who looked a lot like snuggles, baby E is happy and that is all that matters right now. And one day we will tell her about the dog.
