Naomi's new pet

Naomi was looking at an animal book today and just thought the baby seal was the cutest thing. She was kissing it, and hugging it! Then she realized that she wanted one. She said, "Mommy, can we buy a baby seal?" I said, "No. They need it to be really cold outside with lots of ice and a big ocean to swim around in." She thought for a minute and said, "I can put my slip 'n slide out for him." How do you respond to that?

Consequently, it's about 30 degrees outside and we just had an ice storm the other day which dumped a sheet of ice about two inches thick over everything, so I'm pretty sure a baby seal could survive here after all. I'm going internet shopping for a seal today.
