we walked out with 6 babies. Even though I was perfectly content with just 1 pet (our dog) I realized that sometimes it is fun to break your own rule (no more pets!) To watch the sheer joy on my children's faces was better than any Easter basket.
Our daughter LOVES animals. She adores anything with fur, feathers, or (ewww!) scales. I knew she would take good care of them.
See? She is already tending to their fashion needs.
Our state laws require that we purchase 6 at a time, so each of us got to name one, plus a spare. You know, just in case the unthinkable happens. Which, by the way, we've already discussed with the kids so they won't be in shock if one doesn't make it.
Introducing: Woody, Coco, Doodle, Sweatpea, Chester, and John-Henry
I'll give you two guesses who picked the name John-Henry. I chose Sweetpea. My first choice was Duck Confit, but that was a little barbaric. Woody and Coco have the black spots. It will be interesting to see what color they turn out to be.
Doodle was making us nervous on Saturday night. His neck was a little red. I think he was being loved-to-death (guess which child he belongs to). Literally. Loved to death. We put him on bed rest (aka: no touchy) and he seems to be doing great!
In fact, we're all just ducky!
