Emma’s favourite mouse

Emma's favourite mouse

Can I just say how crazy my kids are for Littlest Pet shop critters? If you’re looking for a gift for girls between the ages of 5 and 9 this is it (although I’ve known some boys to like them too).

Pictured above is one of Emma’s favourites. If you’re able to get the enlarged view you’ll see pollen on his face.

Cute! Remember when we had Pound Puppies? I can’t help but wish the “Pet Shop” aspect of the toys related to rescue/shelters instead.

Petshops make me cringe!

Ciaochow: the girls would really like the LPS “Get Better Center” … does that count?

Pendullum: That’s a whole different post. ;)

My girls are so huge on the LPS, and Meghan has asked (and received, shh!) the Get Better Center for her birthday next week. Even Alex loves them, even if the girls always give him the skunk!

Webkinz? Aye yi yi. I love that Erin is so excited about her new puppy, but she’s taking all my computer time! LOL (Not really, she gets 20 minutes a night in exchange for TV time, but it’s MY computer!)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
