I had 5 minutes to put this post together, so don’t criticize too much.
Or at all.
Or at all.
I’m really earning my nickname this week. Busy busy busy Bee.
But I can’t let another day go by without sharing with you our big news.
I’m a Grandma!!!!!
I know, I know….it just kinda ‘happened’ as these things do.
I’ve himmed and hawed about it for a while, but I finally caved and I love the little booger!
Isn’t that a sweet baby?
Oh, wait, that baby is almost 21!
|Here he is investigating my Petunias. (When he is in the brown state…it means he’s a bit nervous-don’t worry, a minute later he was green again)|
Lolo has been asking for a chameleon for over a year. With her impeding 21st bday coming up, she has been begging, pleading and she won’t deny that there were tears of JOY when she saw him the first time.
I’m a sucker for the tears.
Since she’s already looking into graduate schools and WILL take her baby with her, I caved.
Zim is named after Phillip Zimbardo; the well know Psychologist. Of course YOU knew that!
|Lolo (the college nerd) and Zim her baby. Yes, he looks similar to Grumpy Cat.|
Zim is a veiled chameleon. His color variation is not like those on TV. He is also easier to keep than those more colorful chameleons on tv.
THAT is not to say, he is easy to care for. He requires different lighting/temps during the day/night. We’ve provided him with natural plants in his habitat and he needs food (live crickets/meal worms) daily. This isn’t an easy critter to care for.
I have some cute video of him that I’ll share at some point.
Guess what’s happening this weekend??
And of course, I’ll share photos next week.
Have a great weekend!
Happy Mother’s day to all you nurturers, caregivers and Chameleon moms!
