Jacob received some birthday money, so the next day we told him we'd take him to Toys R Us.
And to my surprise, he couldn't find anything that he had to have!
So we walked next door to Barns & Noble... nothing. Walmart... nothing.
Then it hit him! "I'd really like a hamster!"
Um, exsqueese me!?!?!
I was not on board with his decision, so after convincing from Kris, we brought home Sam, the hamster. She's directly above Jacob's head.
Kris said he had a hamster as a kid, and loved it. And since I'm not ready to add a dog anytime soon, a hamster will suffice.
Since this pic was taken, we've already upgraded her cage! Sheesh! She's actually now in a 20gal fish tank. And guess what... we're in the process of making some DIY toys for her. I mean, I've been looking on Pinterest! Who am I!?! We even got her one of those balls so she can roll around the house! And I catch myself going into the room just to see what she's doing. I've lost my mind.
The boys definitely enjoy her, and I hope we're making memories so they can share with their kids someday.
