Cha-Cha-Cha...Chia See- See- See... See Ya

As was to be expected, Chia has left our physical world and joined the great Chia in the sky. Chia's ending was inevitable because 1.) I have never owned a plant I didn't kill (if a Chia can really be classified as a plant??) 2.) I just didn't care. Pure and simple apathy killed Chia.

Chia didn't have much time to do all the things I wished for him. Snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. Travel into space. Dinner with President Obama. The list goes on and on. A better owner would have tried harder. A better owner would have filled the cup with water and simply poured it down it's terra cotta hole. But really, who needs that kind of responsibility?

Chia, in his more lush, youthful days.

I am crying over here! It starts with the line, "ok I am going to smell it." What threw me over the edge was, "Oh Dear God, it was some else's pee!" Laughing so much right now!! Thank you so much for sharing this story with us, not just to feel your pain, but to understand we as Mothers are not alone with most of the things we go through with our most prized possessions, our children.
