Consoling upset children.
One of our guinea pigs died last night. Ali checked on the animals as usual just before bedtime and made the discovery.
So, we had to break the news this morning.
We have no idea what happened. Megan gave them all a cuddle when the kids went to bed, so something happened in the intervening two hours or so. Who knows? We've had this one over three years, so the kids have got very attached to her. Her sister seems to be missing her too.
