that she worked so hard & did research to put together a whole display board & presentation for the family last night to make her case? Especially when part of the reason why she wants the mouse is to spare his life from being eaten by a snake...she was in tears over it. This is so hard, cuz we have a dog & she has a turtle, the girls feed & walk the dog and I make sure he has fresh water & take him to the vet/groomer. Lexi feeds her turtle, but I turn on his light everyday, change his water, add hay to his cage & bring him to the vet. I don't think she has the time to give the turtle the attention it needs, never mind a mouse to. I know I'm the one who is going to have to clean his cage & I don't want to take on that responsibility. Not to mention, her room is a cluttered mess. Am I being a mean mom? HELP!!
