Pet Crazy

If you are friends with Christi on Facebook, you know that Sophi has been petitioning us for a pet for months now.  This campaign consists primarily of unbelievably cute footwritten notes that show up all around the house.  For awhile it was a dog, then it was a hamster, then it was a dumbo-eared rat.  Based on the letter below, apparently the poor girl is trying to increase her odds of success by adding another option.  It is taking all the parental fortitude I have to keep saying no.  (Christi just calls me Scrooge!)  My favorite part of the letter may be the stick figure girl without arms:

In case you can't read it:

Dear Mom I love you so much! You are so sweet! Can I get a pet rat or hapster or lizerd?  Plus I wold take care of it and play whith it!  I wold have so much fun! Plus I think Lexi wold have fun too!  You can think abat it!  Love Sophia

Then she labels the picture with "Me" and "Lizerd."  So cute!

She also typed out an original story about a lizard.

This kid really wants a pet!  Maybe I actually am Scrooge...
