Yesterday, I was apparently feeling more than generous. It’s been a busy week, I love my family more than I did last week and I’m feeling some clarity in our lives after a long, hard year. We were out shopping and Chip said, “Let’s take Noah to look at those things he wants.” You know, parent-speak so you can talk without the kids knowing exactly what it is you’re talking about.
And that’s how we came home with this…
Of course, it didn’t hurt that he kept telling me how awesome I am and how I’m the best mom ever. I think he knew his dad would go for it, but flattery would get him everywhere with his mom.
So, this is Rocky the hamster. He’s a bit cute – still too rodent like for me. I’d have preferred a guinea pig or a bunny personally since they are a bit bigger and less like a mouse. But Rocky seems to like his new home and Noah is just beside himself with joy over his new pet. Seems if there is anything I can do to keep my men (or little lady) happy, I’m an easy sell. Guess I’m just a sucker for those cute little smiles they have.
