So there comes a time when every mother must put aside her own nuisances and let her child do something they love. Therefore, I would like to introduce you to Ashley's new pet rat, yes I said pet rat. Jason and I told her she could get a rat after she saved her money, thinking she would at some time lose interest. But a year later and her faithfully saving every penny, we had to give in. I have to admit it is so cute to see her take responsibility and care for something even though the site of the rat's tail makes me queasy. So good job Ashley and welcome to our family "Cinnamon"!
