Smith family addition

Ava asks for a dog at least four or five times a day. This is not an exaggeration. Usually, when I say, “No, not right now,” she asks for a ferret. (“Yeah, also no.”)

Last night, she worked her way through a list that included hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, and hedgehogs. (“No, nope, not a chance, no.”) By the time she got to “hermit crab…?” I think I surprised her: “Sure, fine.”

So, today, we got a hermit crab. Do you know hermit crabs live A LONG TIME? One of these children might be able to take little Shelly here to college. Fair to say I didn’t really think this one through, but the girls seems content. For now.

    That little hermit crab sure found the right home to be adopted into – what fancy digs! And, Ava looks very happy to have a new pet!
