In honor of Madisen's class pet that she was able to bring home for the second time (Christmas and Spring breaks), I have put a pet hampster on my blog. The first time she brought Alex home, it was a planned visit. The visit over Spring break however, was a different story. This is how I was suckered in: Madisen (The night before the start of Spring break): "Hey Mom, how would you like to have Alex come visit again over Spring break." Me: "UUUMMM, I think you had your turn. There are 3 5th grade classes that share the class pet, right?" Madisen: "Yeah, but when Mrs.-- asked if anyone would like to take Alex home over the holiday, nobody volunteered. So Mrs. -- said I was welcome to take Alex home again if I wanted, because I told her I probably could." Me: "I'm not really wanting you to bring him home again." Madisen: "Well, it's kind of too late because Spring break starts tomorrow after school, and I already told Mrs. -- that she could just plan on me doing it unless I told her otherwise. She is planning on me bringing him home now." Me: "Oh, I see. We are so lucky to have Alex AGAIN!! Out of 100 5th graders, you manage to get him over BOTH long holidays." Madisen: "I know, I'm just lucky like that." I have not forgotten about my tags, I'm still working on them (along with my Math)!
