I know, it's crazy right?? I never thought it would happen to us. Drew REALLY wanted it, how could I say no??
Welcome to the world Phineas and Ferb, Drew's new gerbils. (I didn't even notice Noah in the background when I took the picture.)They are absolutely adorable and I think it's safe to say all 5 of us are having a blast with them. They are so funny to watch. We were so proud of Drew, he spent the last few weeks doing a lot of research on a pet, talked with the pet store people, and decided gerbils were the way to go. He used his money to buy all of the supplies and didn't have quite enough for the gerbils yet, so he worked it off around the house. He was so grown up about it all, I know he will take good care of them. They moved into what used to be the turtle tank (Katie now has the turtle in her classroom for all of her students to enjoy). One is a light tan and the other is white and tan.
Grayson has even befriended them. I have to explain the story behind these two pictures.....it is so hilarious. My cat is too smart, I swear. Todd had walked into Drew's room and Grayson was laying on TOP of the lid and where there is a small opening up there, had his two front paws shoved down inside of it, just sitting there. In the 10 seconds it took Todd to run and get the camera, Grayson climbed down and was laying NEXT to the tank. The hilarious thing was he would NOT look at Todd for anything, just playing innocent. In this picture I swear he's saying "I don't know what you're talking about."
So then he turns around and lays the other way and still won't look directly at Todd. But if you look at his eyes in this picture, you can tell he's looking at him out of the corner of his eye, but he won't turn his head! Little stinker.
And yes, Noah is still going to get a kitty for his birthday and Aiden is getting an African Tree Frog. Welcome to the Klauser Zoo.
***Noah made a comment yesterday about Gerbil babies and I panicked.....we didn't think to ask the pet store if they were males or females. Ooops, I hope my boys don't get a lesson on reproduction!!
