Thanksgiving was a wonderful day! Minus the normal spats between my mother and I, we had a deliciously unique holiday. =) Ribs, bbq weenies in a fondue pot, hors devours galore, and so much else. I even made special raspberry chocolate cheesecake crepes. (needless to say i'll be making more of those)
Alvin was pretty well behaved, i think i took TOO good care of him, he was sooo spoiled until i had to take him to work yesterday. I had to neglect him a bit because I was so busy, but in the evening when things slowed down I showed him off. I was so excited to have one, i was showing him off to EVERYONE and explaining my glittered childhood with the ones i'd had previously. Everyone seemed happy, even though I expected people to think it was a childish thing. But i've noticed something - when someone is open about the thing they love, and aren't phased by others opinions, then those opinions quickly change. =) Theres hope!
Anyway, back to Al - last night, he did his normal routine. Went to bed at precisely 8 pm, and work at the same time. I woke up a bit after him, so he was awake and in his teenage phase still. after some research i'd done - today he should evolve into an adult. Not sure when that would be, i took care of what he needed right away, cleaned him up, fed him, played a long game of jump! and let him relax.
Not even two minutes later, he grew up! Checkers across the screen and everything, then i look and he is changed into Hanatchi! He's the one i wanted =) I was so happy, i ended up dancing around the room. Haha. I'm SUCH a dork.
My mother says this is the replacement for my oath to never have children. I tell her nooo it's not a replacement - it's the next best thing. (and no poopy diapers, at that.)
Thanks everyone for reading, can't you tell i'm happy to share? hehe.
