I won’t squeeze him…

At some point I want to take pictures of the house to post, since we moved all our stuff in here anyway. But at this point it’s all looking so thrown together and barren that I can’t quite bring myself to photograph most of it. So here is a corner of the house that actually has something on the walls, the only thing I have put up in this place so far. This is our school corner…


Having a day over here. Around lunch I tried to redeem it by making oatmeal chocolate chips with the kids, the recipe called for 2 tsp of vanilla and lots of butter, how could that NOT improve my day?! And… I burned them. 🙁 I give up. Put on a movie for the kids and was lost in pinterest for awhile. Now there are strange mess making sounds coming from downstairs that I am trying desperately to ignore. Holy bad mama day.

Perhaps I can at least entertain you with Juno’s recent pleas for a hamster…

or a chipmunk…

She’s like a dog with a bone, or her daddy with a new apple gadget. She can’t think of anything but this rodent she will one day (when she’s like 8!) house in her room in its very own cage. The sweet pet that she will love and not squeeze to death (our reason for not adopting any new pets for a loooooooong time).

I did end up checking the messy noise, it was nothing. Spent the rest of the day building lego and listening to worship tunes. The day improved. 🙂

    It doesn’t matter what we get Juno right now, that animal’s gutz is going to come out of it’s mouth, very quickly.

    what was the name of that cartoon character from when we were little? she used to say things like ‘I will love him, and pet him, and squeeze him’ (I can’t even remember the cartoon she was from) … but it’s Juno to a T!

    Abigail has been asking us for pets. We have said no. Repeatedly. I’m very specific about the reasons:

    “You cannot have a guinea pig or a hamster because they squeal for food, they get out of their cages and you can’t find them and they poop. You cannot have a cat because we used to have a cat and he would punch you so we had to find him a new home. Also, they wipe their butts on the carpet and pee on your stuff when they get mad.”

    I have not yet pulled out “because you might kill the poor animal.” but I may have to say something to that effect at some point.

      Ha, ha… Yeah we just go right for the graphic truth. She squeezes our cats occasionally, but they survive. A little pet? Not a chance. When she stops squeezing the cats when she cuddles them she can have something smaller. (even though the though doesn’t thrill me, it’s better than a dog!!!!)
