R.I.P. Mr. Crab

In the last several weeks, our family has put to rest 4 pet fish (that I can recall), and 3 hermit crabs. 

When the last hermit crab passed, Megan almost seemed upset.

Megan very somber like: Mom, my hermit crab died.

Me: Are you sure?

Megan:  Look at it! It's out of it's shell and just laying on it's back and not moving at all.

Me:  Let me see.

I picked it up.

Me:  You're right. It's dead.

As I prepared myself to comfort her in her time of loss, I was accosted by her enthusiastic response ...

Megan:  YES!! Now I can get a hamster!!!


Yeah.  No need to send your condolences. It appears she's turned a corner in the grieving process.
