I am in such a good mood right now. I have my launch cast radio station rocking in the background, the kids are asleep and I have the computer all to myself. Life is good!
Oh I am also wondering if feeling not so bad that Evan got nipped by the hampster makes me a horrible mom. He hears us all the time telling him to keep away from the cage and yet he stuck his little finger in there and got a nip. I know that Evan understands that certain things are off limits because he will rarely go into the kitchen unless one of us is in there. He will try and sneak in but that only happens when one of us is cooking dinner and the other (usually my husband) is off in another room.
I can hardly blame to poor hampster for the nipping. Earlier in the evening we had him out in his exercise ball and Evan was treating it like a toy and batting the hampster around despite our best efforts to get him to stop. We put the poor animal away before Evan threw him across the room. I guess this is why I usually wait until Evan is asleep before I let the little bugger roam.
The only thing I really feel a bad about is that the nip made Evan bleed, which because he is on blood thinners really is not all that hard. I always feel bad every time he bleeds because even the smallest prick will make him bleed as if the actual injury was much worse. I hope that this will teach him to keep his fingers out of the cage but I am not holding my breath on that one.
