Ashleys new friend..

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"!

We used to have pet rats and they are really smart, so smart they can figure out how to get out of the cage! One night Adam was asleep and I heard something hit the wall, I went in there and the rat had gotten out and was crawling on his face he grabbed it, instinctively and threw it!! It was okay, but I couldn't live with the fact that they could be crawling all over the house!! Good luck with that!!
