Overheard today ...

Now I've never posted like this today, something overheard from a child we don't know, yet felt this was totally with sharing with you all ...

A little boy called Pete came into the guinea pig house today with his mum ... eyes shining bright, he climbed on the bench chatting away all the while.   His mum was asking if he wanted to hold a guinea pig.

Pete said, 'Yes' all the while twitching with excitement at the thought of holding one, as he chatted away.

When his mum got a guinea pig out, his face lit up even more and he said, 'I love it! I love it! I love it!'

... as his mum came over, the guinea pig within touching distance ... Pete saw it wiggle and twitch, and suddenly seemed overwhelmed with not knowing what to do. 

He pulled his hands back, looked his mum in the eye and said, 'I don't love it anymore.'
