Show & Tell #24 - Introducing - Pepi!

First off, I would like to thank the many people who have left comments and sent me e-mails concerning my lay off at the end of the month. I am luckier than most, and one way I am lucky is to have this community to give me encouragement and strength. After the many years of struggling with our secondary infertility, I thought that the last couple years things were finally looking up. And while they are still not bleak, it is a blow to lose a job that I have had for almost ten years, especially in these times.

Onto Show & Tell...

Two S&Ts in a row about our pets!

Michael's birthday is in February...but he has gotten an early present from us...a green Iguana, which he named Pepi (pronounced Peppy).

Pepi eats green vegetables and squash, fruits and berries. (He can also eat crickets if we so choose).

Why an Iguana, you might ask? One reason is that none of us are squirmish with any lizards or reptiles. Another, my husband had a pet Iguana (named Bananas)when he was Michael's age. Third...um, I guess because he is cute...

Oh I love it! I'd like to have an iguana or a snake. I love reptiles, they are so interesting! Thanks for sharing!
Enjoy your day,

We had iguanas when I was growing up! Loved them. They get huge though, and can get feisty (and their tales can be pretty dangerous...) but they do make nice pets if treated properly. I loved them.

Hope he enjoys it!

1st of all I am blown away by the layoff news- I am so so so so sorry to read about that. I can't imagine the different emotions you must be going through. Wishing you luck in finding something new and successful, and hope you enjoy the time off with your family and IGUANA!!!!! Pepi is adorable!!!!! :)

Oh Michael loves it....it is so obvious! I would be scared around Pepi. I have never seen an iguana in real life.
