    I don't have kids, but my nieces and nephew are the closest thing I have (I literally see them every day). I was so sad when my 6 year old nephew told me that he prefers Marvel over DC

    Booze and action figures, generally. Lol. I like to be the person who makes sure everyone receives at least one toy each year. I spent part of Christmas Eve on the kitchen floor at Dad’s showing my nephew how to properly pose his new Fortnite figures.

    My mother gave this to my girlfriend:
    20191231_084239.jpg
    Backstory: my aunt works with an animal rescue service, and some time back they got a hedgehog that was a couple of years old. It was being neglected, so was taken in to be cared for. My aunt gave it to my mother, who nursed it back to health. She brought it out to visit a while ago and my girlfriend took an instant liking to it.
    Sadly, the little guy died a few months later from a congenital disorder.

    My aunt recently found another one that was also being neglected, but this time he was less than a year old. The idiots that paid $700 for it weren't prepared for taking care of an exotic animal and they ended up keeping him in a closet and basically ignoring him.
    She took it in and asked my mother if she wanted another one. She really didn't, but remembered how well my gf took to the other one. She asked me if it would be alright to give him to her for Christmas, so after some discussions, I agreed.
    Needless to say, she took to him immediately and instantly fell in love with the little pin cushion. He was very shy at first but over the course of a few days really came out of his shell and has become a real happy little bugger. He is starting to play and actually respond to contact without being upset.

    Aww poor little guy. :( 

    I don't understand people who treat animals like they're not living creatures? I'm glad he got a good home with your gf and I'm crossing my fingers for a healthy, happy life.

    The little potato will NOT sit still for a pic. He's so excited when he gets held by my girlfriend that he wants to look all over the place and run around.
