Welcome to little Keira! She's so cute...and I can't believe I'm saying that. My almost 9 year old daughter decided she wanted a gerbil for her birthday. And she wanted it yesterday. My husband and I held out for two months under the constant "I would reeeaaalllyy love a gerbil!" campaign. Finally, the hubby broke (I knew he would- softy) and we bought a gerbil on Tuesday. Mind you, the official 9th birthday isn't for two more weeks. Parenthood- I'd have better luck against a typhoon.
