Pixie and the Princess ..
A few weeks ago, Kane told us his friend Daisy's guinea pigs had babies, 9 of them! Yes, we gave in to the hints. begging and pleading and told Kane and Maya they could have one each - both females.
Kane has pestered Daisy's mum at the school gate nearly every day for information on the guinea pigs, and we have been up to their place for a visit. He has tormented Daisy every day in class too with questions.
Well, they are 8 weeks old now and they came home last night. Kane did a lot of googling to find a good name for a guinea pig, Pixie, and Maya has named hers Princess Guinea Pig. The kids are working pretty hard on taming them now, and they are a pretty good distraction for Ayden who is supposed to be studying for mid year exams.
