So today, I started putting away all the Halloween decorations. I told Emerson that he should say "bye bye" to the bats because they were going away until next year. He immediately got the sadest look and started bawling. Then said "I don't want the bats to go. I love them." Then continued bawling for about 5 minutes. I finally convinced him that they are going to have to go no matter what and asked him if he wanted to help them go bye bye. So he sat and took them down one by one and put them away.
I had no idea that he was so attached to these bats. He is such a sweetheart.
