For Valentine's Day, we got the kids hermit crabs. This was a compromise on the whole "we want a dog or a cat or a guinea pig or a hamster" conversation that we have all the time. Hermit crabs, I figured, I can do with only having to clean the cage twice a year and all. It was fun surprising the kids with a trip to the mall to pick out their very own hermit crab. Bella chose a penguin painted shell, Ezra chose a batman one, and Cali chose a ladybug. The crabs have provided much entertainment over the past few months but even as I write this, we've already had a death (Cali's ladybug) and a funeral/burial in our backyard. Maybe longevity isn't their thing?
