Abez sez Assalamualaikum!

Because sometimes, you really need a hamster…

(I am in bed falling asleep for a much-needed power nap when Iman lets herself in and stands at the head of my bed.)

Iman:  Momma, I get it a wabbit?

Me: (trying to talk and not wake up at the same time) A rabbit?  Honey, you don’t need to get a rabbit.

Iman: I get it a ham-sto?

Me: We’re not getting you a hamster.

Iman: Momma, I need  it a ham-sto.

Me: Ok, go get a hamster.

She leaves the room and I start falling back asleep.  I am vaguely aware of Iman returning, putting something next to my chin, and then patting me.  And when I wake up half an hour later, I’m cuddling this:

It’s Harry the Happy Hamster.  Lil Grey’s kids left him here once upon a time, and he’s been an important member of Iman’s ridiculously diverse collection of stuffed toys ever since.

It was a nice nap.  Alhamdulillah. 🙂

  6. Owl: You are NOT getting her 13 hamsters! And don’t tell me you are only going to get her one, because you know as well as I do that one hamster equals 13 hamsters faster than you can say cedar chip.

    Besides, I don’t know how cute it would be if she put real hamsters on me while I was sleeping, lol.
