He does does this to raise money for his own needs, to practice math and business skills, to learn how to care for animals well.
This week I had surgery. Was away for a whole day and rather drugged up last night.
Someone saw fit to jump the fence of our backyard and steal his most recent tank of two moms and their offspring. Just babies yet.
Second time they've done this. They've stolen rabbits from me, which makes me upset...but when they steal from my boy... it's just makes me very angry with them.
My son is still away visiting friends to give me a chance to recuperate a bit and I feel angry. I haven't told him yet, but I'm making plans that perhaps my son's friend could raise up his mice for him.
I know my boy will be upset.
They are taking away his business opportunity.
They are taking away his pets.
He's eight years old and trying hard to learn new skills and care levels for critters and what not and they take it away from him.
I'm trying hard not to think nasty thoughts, to remember that God knows what he's doing, but when it comes right down to it, I'm angry at what they are doing.
