Our new family member

Apparently hell has frozen over! We have a new family member in the form of a turtle. I swore I would never allow my kids to have pets because I don't do animals. they are great to look at from a distance. I don't want to care for one, the clean up! No, thank you. However, Kokopelli was given to us by our friends who recently moved away. How could I give away this turtle who belonged to Vai's best friend? I didn't think I could deal with having a pet but honestly he is growing on me. But let it be known that it stops here!

Oh my... I never thought I'd see the day when you got your kids a pet...even if it was just a friends' to start out w/. Hey that's how Mom & Dad ended up w/ Bootsie. Watch out or you may be getting a dog someday. :)

SUCKER! I cannot believe you fell for that trick. Don't you know that Vai slipped your friends a $5 bill to have them "leave" the pet with you. Man - I didn't think I'd have to ever say this to you, but "you've been played" by your six year old. Sorry. He's cute - but devious. Us with a pet? Never gonna happen.

That's awesome! Just make sure you don't kiss the turtle. Idk if I ever told you about when my mom got bit my a turtle but...just ask her about it. It was hilarious. Good luck with the thing. Hey, I got stuck with a Bearded Dragon! But I love my Wilbur. It's good times.

Is the turtle going on vacation with you? I bet he's never gotten to visit the Pacific Northwest :)

Is that an actual picture of your "new family member?" I got a Yellow-Bellied Slider for Christmas in high school and it moved with me several times. We didn't know it was a girl and I named it Seymour. Jess finally baked her by leaving her outside in the heat too long right after we were married. I was devastated! If I get another turtle, it will be a box turtle. Good luck!!
