Bad boys, bad boys...whatcha gonna do?

Yo, Yo - Wassup, Dawg?

    Only YOU would make Narnia references about pet rats. So funny...just so funny. Angie, you're a total freak, and that's probably my favorite thing about you! :)

  2. Angie, I think you are hands down the coolest, most fun mom and pet owner. I mean, how the heck am I supposed to compete with this? I scream if Andy brings a bug in the house. If I saw a rat, I would have a heart attack. These rats get more pampering and attention than the most "dignified" family pet. And, you use the playtime to churn out these really fun stories and post them on a blog. I bet Ringo is the happiest kid alive. I am going to go eat a bucket of bon-bons and mull over how I CAN NOT do this stuff. :(

  3. oh i love the teeny tiny crown!

  4. Becca: I'm a total freak? Well, I wasn't expecting someone to outright say that, but I guess you can't have a blog about rat-humans without someone labeling you a freak. About the Narnia references...there's not THAT MUCH difference between lions and rats, is there?

    Laura: You know better than to make such a statement! Everyday in our house isn't a festival of fun. Trust me, Ringo will have plenty of memories about my parenting fails. In fact, this blog will be a foggy memory when he's a grown man. And, just so you know...I probably ate a bucket load of Bon-Bon icecream balls just last week! You're an amazing mom! Andy is one of the luckiest kids I know! So hush it, woman!
