Poofy the hamster was found unresponsive today. We are all very sad. She was a sweet "little mouse" and she will be missed. A private service will be held in the backyard later today.
I will always remember you. I wish you were still here, but I know you are happy up in heaven right now. I will miss your tickly little whiskers and the way you stuffed your cheeks full of food and stuff. You were the best little hamster in the whole entire world.

Last night as Eli and I were returning home from an evening of fun (and yummy food, thanks Erin) at my brother’s house Eli was telling me how much fun he and Liam (his cousin) had. He said, “I love Liam, he’s like the brother I never had!” to which I replied, “Eli, you have 3 brothers” His response… “Yeah, but Liam is like the brother I never had!” I tried to explain how that didn’t make sense but after more “I know mom, but Liam is like the brother I never had!” I decided that maybe I was the one misunderstanding. He and Liam are only 14 months apart in age they have very many things in common including vivd imaginations! He and Liam aren’t brothers, so they rarely see each other which means they don’t have to share a room, toys, the Wii or personal space, So in a sense Liam is like a brother without the fighting, bickering and competing for mom’s attention. Translation: “the brother he never had!”
