Delighted to Announce

I am relieved almost to the point of euphoria to announce:

Sputnik the hamster has been found!

Yes folks, after almost 5 days of wandering around the Oldest's room, Sputnik has returned to his cozy little cage. None too soon, either, as I was rather afraid the cats were going to find him first, and I really wasn't in the mood for a gruesome discovery. (Though really, when that's the case, I should probably just steer clear of Oldest's room in general!)

My favorite part, though, was the part where I discovered Sputnik was missing. Oh yeah, you'll like this too. Oldest missed the bus (a fact about which Middle Child did a little too much gloating, but that's another story) and I had to drive him to school. When I asked why he was late he said, rather nonchalantly, "Well, Sputnik's been missing for 3 days, and I saw him, so I wasted a bunch of time trying to catch him."

Wha?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Why is the mom the last to know this? Ay ay ay.

Anyway Sputnik is home, all hail the returning rodent and all that. I wonder if he was hanging out with the molebats?

Yay, for Sputnik's return! I also wanted to note that my daughter saw that Sesame Street painting on your blog and immediately said, "GROVER!!!" despite Grover being black in color.

See, she gets it! =) If you don't know the story, my mom painted that when Sesame Street was in its infancy (and I was in mine) and we had a black and white tv! So she made up the colors as she went along... I love that painting.

No, I know the story, which makes the painting even more endearing. In fact, I had to show it to my DH and tell him the story. I love it so much I'm thinking of adding it to my own personal history. :p

Congrats. I think. I, myself, was rather relieved when demise of our rodents was announced...
