My son has been asking for a hamster for over a year now. Apparently before Christmas I told him that we could get one after we got home from Christmas vacation. He has been patiently waiting. Asking, but not too much. Just enough to remind me about it, and let me know that he's excited about it.
So, today he and I went to Petco and we got him a Robo hamster. They are supposed to be good for first time owners. They aren't supposed to bite, but they are supposed to be very energetic.
My son is so excited! He named the hamster Buttons. I have no clue if it's a boy or a girl. We bought a book about hamsters, it may show us how to tell. I'm not really sure.
It's so good to see my son excited about it.
