Rest in Peace
Wizard the Lizard
Beloved bearded dragon lizard, who would grace our presence on school holidays.
Sometime in the 1999-2000 school year -November 15, 2004
(anyone have tips to make it easier on my soon-to-be-eight year-0ld?)

Awe, poor little guy. I feel really bad.

Unfortunately there really isn't much I can suggest. Maybe you can do a little project together and make a memorial in honor of Mr. Lizard? Maybe mount a plastic lizard that looks like him on a plaque of wood and engrave his name on it with a Dremel tool?

I was going to suggest a project, too, but more along the lines of a collage, if you had pictures - something he can take part in.

When our budgie died my 8 yr old made a paper mache bird and put it in the cage, hmmm.

When our fish died, the kids wrote a story about him (her?) They remembered what they liked about the gilled critter, and how he (she?) made them laugh.

Then we put each one into a scrapbook which they'll cherish someday - one hopes, anyway.

Sort of a preparation for the inevitable departure of our aging cat. Now THAT will be a tough one. They love our furry little friend to bits and pieces.

What better way to teach kids about the circle of life than through pets. You're a wise Mom for looking for the good in Wizard's passing.
