Meet Oreo! After months of asking for a pet: a hedgehog, snake, turtle, cat, dog, lizard, etc..... The kids finally wore me down and I agreed to a guinea pig. They all filled up their marble jar (which they earn by good manners, kind words, sharing, etc) and decided together this was what they wanted as their reward. Oreo is a black and white female, and the kids are smitten. She is still pretty timid and scared, but warming up more and more. This is their responsibility and their very own pet, so they are in charge of it's care. We shall see how this goes, but I expect they will do a great job!
