Mama in the Picture | October 2013

Daisy the dog and Frida the cat were living on Jarboe Street well before Lucinda arrived on the scene in 2011. From the beginning, we've encouraged her to show compassion and gentleness for animals. It's interesting that as she's grown into a toddler, she sometimes struggles more now than she did as a baby to show gentleness to our pets. Maybe its that she feels everyone gets to be her boss, so she needs to feel like there's something she can boss around. Those moments are good, because they are continued opportunities to teach her compassion.

And, if you still haven't seen the video of Lucinda talking about "Baby Kitties," just scroll down below.
