Birds and the Bees...and the Rats

We got 2 girl rats for Christmas this year and have really enjoyed them more than I expected. While we were out shopping at the pet store we were comparing all the different rodents (hamsters, gerbils, rats) and talking about their behaviors and personalities. The assistent then mentioned they were selling females at their store and if we wanted males they were available at a store across town.

So my next question was "Is there a difference between the males and females?" MEANING OF COURSE is there a difference in personalities or behaviors! Like is one gender more aggresive etc.

Her response: "Well, yes, the males have tiny testicles. But they are fuzzy so that's ok."

Jeff couldn't stop lauging.

Count Your Blessings...

My wash day was on Monday and I just looked at the laundry. On Tuesday I sorted it into piles on our bedroom floor. On Wednesday I let Brenna and Kevin romp through it all and scatter it all around the room. On Wednesday afternoon Brenna comes into our room and throws up all over. I scoop up the clothes and put them in the wash. Sure thankful for not doing laundry on time so I didn't have to spend hours scrubbing the carpet.
