|My 3 yr old boy, Sam, holding a worm.|
Please accept my apologies for the damage Sam caused you.
He's only 3 years old and his fine motor skills are still developing. He tried to hold you gently but didn't realize that his squeezes and pinches hurt.
The way you moved across the ground without arms and legs fascinated Sam. He giggled at feeling of you squirm across his hand.
What Sam really wants is a pet but mama refuses to allow him to have a dog, so he has settled for finding worms in the backyard.
I truly am sorry about the plastic bag and cardboard box fiascoes. Sam believed he prepared you good homes. He filled the containers with dirt and grass and water, just like outside.
He didn't understand that too much water would cause you to drown. Or that sitting in the sunshine would cause you to overheat and shrivel.
Again, my apologies. I can only hope that you forgive us.
