It's not that this stuff doesn't happen at other people's houses.
It's just that it's WAY more likely to happen at my house.
Last night I was tucking the 8 year old into bed and my tween came in and said:
"Mom? There's a plant growing out of my sink."
OK, you don't hear that every day...
Apparently, the hamster food, which contains sunflower seeds, spilled into the drain and seed + water = plant.
I'm willing to wager that a more meticulous housekeeper might have noticed this development sooner.
So we named him "Sinky" and I thought it would be great fun to just let him live there until my 11-year-old suggested that roots and plumbing might not be the best combination.
R.I.P., Sinky......on the bright side, maybe I do have a green thumb after all.
