Jacqui proudly claimed her reward — she and her dad had a grand time watching the Chinese dancers perform this weekend (while Kyle and I stayed home with fevers and sore throats). And Jacqui has become pleasantly conscious of how “cause and effect” relates to her behavior choices, which is a nice turn of events.
Especially since Kyle could care less about such matters as he is too thoroughly occupied in re-defining the concept of “the terrible two’s” in all the most obnoxiously wrong ways imaginable.
I would make him a chart too, except he would probably just slather it in contraband Desitin and stop up the toilet with it.
Oh, and an update on our hamster fugitive…
I am happy to report that we finally know the answer to the question: What does a robo dwarf hamster actually look like?
Our amazing kitty, Jingle, finally cornered the little vermin. After much shrieking, hopping, lunging and muttering of opinions regarding the intelligence of parents who bring such creatures home, the fugitive rodent was finally brought to justice three excruciatingly long days following her unfortunate escape.
And by justice I mean trapped in a VERY tall screw-top jar (with airholes) and promptly returned to the pet store.
Where she will be free to dupe into ownership and subsequently terrorize another unsuspecting family with her psychotic speed.
I just love happy endings, don’t you?
