And the Rock Goes On....

The power of a 3 year olds imagination is unlimited. Want a pet? Find a pet...have a pet. Care for it, bath it, give it a new home and lots of water to drink. (because we all know rocks need to drink right?)

Hailey put so much determination into having a pet she invented her own...

Then she via her father she was able to give her pet a nice safe home
No Glass on this House

And then, after much begging and waiting, she was able to provide warmth and color for her beloved pet Rocky

Yes Mom, I sewed the rock a pillow - she asked me for 2 days!

and now Rocky has a pillow and a blanky (though Hailey and Riley are having blanky troubles)

Then it was off to paint the house, a must have for Hailey!


Rocky is behind the paint guarding the scene and Hailey has a little poptart on the side....

The artistry of a 3 year old

So, If you ever find yourself feeling a little lonely, or needing someone to hold on to go out and grab yourself rock, give it a name and a comfy cozy home and you too might be as happy as our three year old.

That is just too cute. Watch out soon there will be room additions to the house because Rocky will need a kitchen, playroom, deck.

This is the cutest little story and it is so cute how attached she is...there could be worse things I am sure.

You are a great mom..look at you enabling her ;-).. I love the house all painted. I have a few things to paint around the house do you think I could hire her?

I just love to see kids use their imagination.. It's wonderful to see the joy she's receiving from this little rock and the support she's getting from Mom and Dad. What does Lauren think about it?
