2. Companionship

You ever have one of those days where you feel like no human being on earth could possibly know or understand your problems? Your kids have those days too. They think you as the grown-up have no idea what it is like to be little. Their sweet little pet does though! Iโ€™ve heard my son having quite the heart to heart talks with our pets. It gives them a relationship that grows with them. They will go through highs and lows together and come out the other side close and full of stories about amazing adventures theyโ€™ve been on. Whether we want to admit it or not, we end up having that kind of relationship with those sweet little guys, too.
