My youngest child has the art of manipulation down to a science. I can count the number of times I've said "NO" to that girl on one hand and have several fingers left over! So she asked if she could bring a baby rabbit home from her school's
Vo-Ag class. My hesitation in answering apparantly spoke volumes to her because she immediately took it as a "yes"!
Now, mind you, I love animals, wouldn't trade my dogs for anything, and the little hamster we took in a couple of months ago is too, too cute...but another pet? She's only home one more year and then she'll be off to college and then who'll be taking care of these creatures of hers? Oh, who am I kidding, who takes care of them now?!!
And so, meet Fitzgerald! He is absolutely adorable. So, so, so soft...loves to be held and cuddled. Looked so lonely in his cage that I found myself asking her if he had a brother who might come live with him so he has a playmate! Lift my bangs...it says "sucker" across my forehead!
