I can't help but laugh... we had a visitor over yesterday and when they were given a tour of Ethan's nursery they asked if we had a pet. They gave me a confused look when I said no. Then I had to explain the reason why I had a pet bed under a mobile (that I made with some pretty awesome double-sided scrapbook paper!) and what it was used for.
