new addition to the family... rodent size


Megan has been doing such a great job cleaning her room, making her bed, and getting great report cards. We decided to reward her with a hamster. She has been wanting one for ever and we just didn't want to get one. Last night we picked her up from gymnastics and took her to petsmart. She held a chinese dwarf hamster and it kept jumping right out of her hands, it was so tiny. The guy told us those kind were good about not biting, but they were fast. Megan liked the winter white ones, but he said they are bad about biting. She wanted to hold one anyway. He got one out and it was so calm and it didn't bite her or the guy so he is the one we got. We didn't name him yet, I told Megan to get to know him a little bit first. I am sure the name will be corny. The hamster hasn't stopped running around. He loves the wheel. It is so fun to watch him.

You are such a great mom! My kids each got a hamster one time. 18 days later we had 5 babies, and 19 days after that we had 7 MORE babies. Did I mention it was my husband who took them to get the hamsters? No more mice in my house :)
