Waking up to find your son has captured a pet is always exciting.
Let's back up a bit.
A friend of ours is a free spirit... I wish I could be a bit more myself. She let her son catch lizards from the yard. Now, the two lizards (Rex and Greeny) are fond family pets.
T Man has been wanting his own pet for some time now. To him, a lizard was the perfect solution.
I still was in the winning circle though because he did not have a proper home for a pet. That is until the other day. T noticed the perfect cage left abandoned in the neighbor's garage. Being 8 years-old, he had no problem asking if he could take it off her hands.
Of course, she said "YES" without hesitation.
So, when a little lizard should scamper under the garage door into the house this morning, giggles and bliss ensured. I was quickly woken up to meet our new little friend. Being that he has a beautiful stripe down his back, he has been named Racer.
Big G is going to love finding our new addition when he gets home later today... <wink> <wink>.
