To the date.

Isabella woke up tonight crying.
Missing our cat we put down last year, Rocket.
She said she had a dream about him and it made her miss him.
Her heart hurts. 
It's plain to see. 
I laid with her and held her. and kissed her forehead. 
Then Daddy went in and loved her.
He had a special bond with Rocket too.
I was reading one of my favorite blogs, 
when he walked out and said,
pull up your blog please. 
go to last year. 
now scroll down. 
and this is what we read. 
spent with the girls. 


Rocket, our Cool Cat

Isabella's prayer last night
and convo with me
about our cat.
He will be going to Heaven tomorrow because of cancer.

Isabella: Dear Father, thank you for Rocket, we will miss him.
Thank you for my blessings.
Mom, I almost cried when I said that.
am going to cry right now.
I am going to miss him so much.
        And that little sweet girl cried and cried.
         I felt her sadness over her entire body.
He's my best friend, he's my buddy.
He waits for me outside my room every morning.
I love him so much.
I just want to give him my heart.

As she was crying, she asked me,
Mom, will I see him in heaven?
How will he know when I am there?
He just will.
Do you think if I snap or whistle he will come to me?
I am going to miss him so much.

She woke up this morning and wanted to have a cupcake party
balloons and all to celebrate his life.
So thats what we did.
Right before bed
she looked at me with a sparkle in her eye and said
Can I write a note to him
tie it to the balloon
that way when
he gets to heaven he'll get my note.

Absolutely, I think that sounds great!

Rocket, one of the coolest cats on earth.
He is warm, loving and kind.
And has a special connection with Isabella.
We will miss him.

He laid with both kids last night.
First with Isabella
then over to Sophia.
It was like he knew.
It was great.
(sorry for his eyes in the last photo, it was just the flash)

her little heart. 
god how i love that kid!

Oh what a sweet sweet post and what a sweet cat and what sweet little girls you have!! I'm sorry she misses Rocket so much. That's a hard one for kids to understand isn't it? Poor thing. Hugs to you my friend.
