difficult child wanted a chinchilla. so bad that he saved up money all summer for one and all the supplies he needed for it. I really wasn't enthused. BUT we found a baby one that is the sweetest thing. I think Im in love. (don't call the looney bin on me) We have done some research online about them (before we got him), but I am wondering if anyone has had one before and some cute things you did with them/ neat toys you had for them. difficult child named him "Muffin" ...lol I had to restrain husband from making girly comments since Muffin is a boy. But we love him to pieces. We all play with him several times a day.
