Gone Too Soon

Thank you for rocking our world.

Rest in peace.

It was early morning in our hotel room in Beijing and it was freezing cold.

I was preparing a warm bath for our four year-old son, so I proceeded to remove his pajamas and underwear.

After a few seconds, my son gives a squeal and his already very round eyes got even rounder.

Worried, I asked him what the matter was.

He immediately pointed to his protruding little penis and bluted out: "Look, Mommy! My turtle turned into a giraffe!"

I tried valiantly to keep a straight face, but it was impossible. I almost fell to the floor laughing.

I have never looked at a turtle or giraffe the same way since.
