While at dinner the other night at grandma’s house, we were surprised by my daughter, Grace, with her full on proposal and presentation.
I thought the hamster days were over.
It’s been in the works since November.
Her presentation contained 6 months of research.
A display, a song and presentation.
Secretly, she has been working to put it all together at grandma’s house, so in a vulnerable moment, she could present this to us and we might say yes.
I want you all to know how much I dislike little critters in my home.
In my life I have had three hamster/gerbil experiences.
#1 Gerbil – I cared for a friend’s gerbil and it kept me up all night spinning on its wheel. In the morning I discovered it had chewed half its tail off. When I returned it to my friend, it died.
#2 Hamster – When the girls were young, we got a hamster and it bit people so we got rid of it.
#3 Hamster – So then we got a new hamster that escaped it’s cage and for days and years I wondered where in my home that little critter was. At night, I feared that the critter would crawl across my bed. Someday I expect to find a little skeleton in some drawer somewhere in my house.
Her timing is interesting. Yes, in three days we leave for the Dominican Republic. That does not stop her from dreaming of her future.
As much as I hate critters, we said yes, but she has to wait until we get home.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
