Sprinkles is officially ONE! Well, I mean, I actually have no idea how old she is. In fact, when we re-homed her I thought she was several years old and didn’t know until Matt picked “Sally” up from her previous family that she was actually still a BABY…
Anyway, Sprinkles secretly became part of our family on May 6, 2020 (yep, pandemic pet) and we officially surprised the kids with a scavenger hunt to their guinea pig surprise for Caroline’s 6th birthday the following day. So Caroline has decided May 6 is officially Sprinkle’s birthday!
Even though it’s only been a year, it feels like Sprinkles has been part of our family forever. We thought the novelty of a guinea pig would eventually wear off with the kids…but nope! She is the first thing the kids sprint to every morning and they grab her almost immediately as soon as they arrive home from school and take her outside to play. She’s part of every Family Movie Night, has joined us for many trips over the past year (I think she’s been on 4 beach vacations??), stole the show for our family Christmas card and has only gotten lost in the yard once (a very traumatic experience). We considered getting her a companion at one point but after several “play dates” with PetSmart guinea pigs that did not go well, we decided against a second.
All that to say, we love you Sprinkles! Happiest birthday to the family member that poops way too much!
And now, some of our favorite Sprinkles photos over the past year…
