Last week at Sparks we did a field trip. We visited a local vet clinic and learned important things like how to behave around dogs you don't know and why you need to groom your cat regularly. (We passed around a mat of cat hair the size of William Shatner's toupee. I went home having an allergy attack.) At the end of the presentation the girls had the opportunity to meet the office pet. This is where I had to be so, so, brave.
I tried so very hard to be brave because I don't want my girls to think it is OK to be scared just because I am. I wanted them to be brave and learn that in this, controlled situation, it is OK to be near this guy.
I think I made a tiny step forward in learning how to conquer my own fear.
I love how the girls are holding hands to help each other out. It is so very sweet.
