brooke's upstairs on the phone with a friend of hers & they're letting their zhu zhu pets talk to each other through the phone (it's on speaker, so lucky me, i get to hear both sides of that conversation). both girls just said, "i'll go ask my mom! EEEEEEE"
brooke came down & asked me if she could have this friend over next saturday and i said that was fine. there was a loud squeal & running up the steps when i heard brooke yell to her friend, "she said YES! it's a GO and it's a DITTO! EEEEEEE"
i'm sure they're planning more zhu zhu weddings, complete with a trip to the zhu salon for grooming first. you know how the hamsters always like to have their fur looking spiffy when the wiggle down the aisle.
on another & totally unrelated parenting note, a couple nights ago we returned from dinner & brooke discovered that her naughty kitten had ripped up her beloved real fox tail. brooke has a thing for wearing ears & tails & she found a beautiful gray one at a renaissance festival a year or two ago. it hooks onto a beltloop & she wears it around the house all the time & in public frequently. unfortunately, naughty kitty baby loves it too & took her opportunity to kill it when it was left out while the people were gone. brooke immediately got her camera to take a picture of it & then asked if she could blog about it for some "writing therapy". here's the link to her sad, sad story.
today, a package arrived in the mail from mimi with a new tail that's longer & fluffier than the last one & it's been hooked to her butt ever since. yay! mimi to the rescue!
