MashaAllah Yusuf turned four today! I cant believe how fast time flies! Please remember him in your prayers.. may Allah give him (and all our children) a long life filled with emaan, taqwa, love and happiness. And may He always keep us close to one another and keep our hearts united! Ameen.
So I may be crazy but Im thinking of having a talk with Yusuf tomorrow about how hes a big boy now and he needs make sure he listens / helps and stuff. Alhamdulillah on the most part he is a great kid but is having typical issues of not listening / having me repeat myself ten times. So Im *thinking* of talking to him about getting a pet. If he can prove that he will be responsible and help take care of it then inshallah we can get one. Now the idea just popped into my head... so I may need to sleep on it... but... does anyone have any suggestions on what kind of pets would be good? Any personal experiences? When I was a kid, we had a dog, a turtle, fish, a bunny, and a budgie (not all at once!). It goes without saying that minimal maintenance would be preferred. But we already did the fish thing and it was kinda boring! My husband who reading this post as I type and is suggesting a snake / lizard... something to make the boys tough. :\
Anyways... any suggestions?? :)
