Let me go back a minute. Our neighbors have the cutest fluffiest hamster for their boys. It's an adorable furball that would let you hang it upside down by it's back foot he's so tame. His name is "Happy" and it fits him perfectly. He's the sweetest little guy that the kids all love to hold and play with. Lauren Elizabeth literally wakes up in the morning asking if she can go see him, then comes home from school asking the same thing.
I think you can guess where this is going.
When we asked Lauren what she wanted for her birthday, she had only one request. yep. A hamster.
I wouldn't have a problem with getting a hamster to tell the truth, but the problem is that in our family, there's no such thing as anything going remotely smooth.
Sure, our neighbors have the dream hamster that looks and acts so cute you could squish him, but in our house? We'd get some deranged, rabid, foaming at the mouth terror rodent that wanted to bite the heads off of everything it saw. I just know it would sit up all night plotting his revenge on all humans.
The kids would end up screaming, fingers would bleed and the already wild house with six people and a dog and a cat, would have one more thing to keep us up all night.
You wanna know the best part? We just went to the pet shop and got one. He's hidden in our closest so Lauren won't know until tomorrow. Yes, we have lost our minds.
Our nine year old son, Ethan is in with him now, so I'm waiting to see how that goes while I keep Lauren away. I haven't heard any screams from Ethan yet, so I'm hoping that's a good thing and not very...very...bad.
I'm going to the kitchen now to try and make an Elsa cake for the big day because the only thing that could possibly be more annoying than a nocturnal creature, scurrying in your closet is anything 'Frozen' themed.
I'll be sure to post pictures of her big day. Anyone who knows me, knows my mad "Pinterest" skills, so the cake and everything else should be quite fantastic. :/
As for now, here's a shot of the new little guy that I snapped at the pet store. He's watching...aaaaalways watching.
