Our friends Breck and Brian had a little boy in September who was born with a perforated colon and was later diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Due to his ruptured colon he has since been given a gastric button to help him with feedings. Breck and Brian have to feed him through a feeding tube attached to his G-button to make sure he gets enough calories to continue to grow bigger and stronger. That said baby Bennett ( has been Roy's first and only experience with injuries and hospitals.

That leads me to this story...

Yesterday while driving Roy and I noticed a cat that had been hit by a car laying in the road. Roy was very distressed by it and was exclaiming in his sad voice (his sad voice is really pitiful sounding) "That's so sad mommy, that kitty got hurt." I agreed with him and thought I'd take advantage of this teaching moment, I told him that the kitty had been hit by a car and that's why we need to be very careful when we're around cars so that we don't get hurt. His reply was "Yeah, then I might have to get a G-button." - Not quite what you'd expect to come out of the mouth of a 2 year old!
