The kids were so excited to find out there was a baby opossum waiting for each of them.
They are kind of cute I have to admit. Most likely we will raise them up until they are big enough to fend for themselves and then let them go. But in the mean time the kids are in heaven. They love the way the little things grab your finger with their tail. It reminds me of when a baby grabs anything that touches it's hand.
My daughter thanked me for letting them stay. She said she was surprised because of my "no rodents for pets" rule. I got off the hook by telling her that they are not rodents, they are marsupials. It is always better when you are the mom if you don't break your own rules.
I do have some bed pictures to put up, but they will have to wait for another day, I was just more in the mood to put these up today.
