It really is the best way to have a pet, I think. I imagine it's similar to being a grandparent- it's fun while it lasts but it's always nice to send them home afterwards! This is "Plumber" Ellie's hampster and we're watching him for 10 days while they're having some fun in the sun in San Diego- wish I were, too! He's staying in the laundry room and all we have to do is feed him before we go to bed, not too bad. The boys love him and always have to say hi to him every morning and night but they really don't care to touch him. That's probably a good thing, though, since I don't have to worry about them squishing him a little too hard- if you know what I mean.

And yes, Jack's wearing Christmas jammies because they're just about his absolute favorite ones- even though they're tight as can be on him!

How fun! I finally had to hide Ava's Christmas PJ's because I was so sick of seeing them. Liza wears some hideous Little Mermaid PJ's that she got to buy for potty training herself. I mean, it was worth it- but nothing kills me like Disney attire. Anyway... I think we'll offer to pet sit someone's pet. It really does seem like the perfect thing!

There is nothing wrong with Christmas in July! Or August, as the case may be. We all need a little break from this yucky heat! I can't believe how big your kids are getting.

Thanks again for pet-sitting for us. I can't believe the boys wouldnt touch him. I'm glad you liked it so much because now we have a much bigger pet for you to sit. And...a lot more work. Are you kicking yourslef now? We finally named the little pug Vader.
