Nick, the naked mole rat

My sister and brother-in-law bought the boys a naked mole rat stuffed animal from the zoo.  These animals are hideous and hilarious to me.  Nevertheless, my boys love Nick.  He got the name “Nick” because “naked” sounds a lot like “nick-ed” when Ethan says it…  Anyway, Nick has been sick the past few days so my boys are taking great care of him.  We are zoologists and we feed him eggs, bacon, oatmeal, meat and cheese roll ups, and aloe vera juice.  We also like to give it lots of honey, lemons, and olive oil.  We give Nick lots of hugs and kisses…we rock him to sleep…Micah makes sure that we are all very quiet around him…and Ethan bounces him softly on the ball.  He is going to be healthy again in 5 days, according to Ethan.
