I considered turtle. But they carry bacteria. But what child doesn't, lol?
Fish? No. Dorothy just died. I am NOT getting another fish in the near future.
So anyway, for Trenton's birthday, Scott and I decided to get him his very own pet, as a surprise. We knew what kind ahead of time and bought the set up over the weekend. We took him today to Petco under a ruse that Scott made up. We looked at all the animals without telling him he was getting one. When I told him he got to pick a hamster, he was SO excited.
We brought him home a couple of hours ago and Trenton already loves him. His name is, of course, Ben, after Ben 10 the cartoon. He's a cutie. Happy Early Birthday, Trenton!
