The Rainbow And The Guinea Pig

Camera Critters

This week while my daughter was in the bathroom I noticed a rainbow as I walked by her bedroom. Quickly like a good mom, I shouted through the bathroom door because why should I be the only one that doesn't get any peace while on the toilet?

"Honey, there is a rainbow in your room. Oh no wait, scratch that...there are two!"  Through the door I hear her think about jumping off the toilet with a dirty butt just to see the rainbow because when you are a kid...when mom tell you something, you can absolutely count on it being gospel and rainbows in your room is equal to mom saying, "there is a majestic, white unicorn in your room holding plane tickets in it's mouth for a trip to Disney for us. 

She realizes that she cannot get up and run to the door so instead reluctantly says, "Ohhhhh I want to see."

I inform her that I snapped a photo in case by the time she comes out of the toilet it has magically disappeared as quickly as it arrived.

Then she says, "put Stormy (our Guinea Pig) near it."

So, for all who are interested....here is Stormy who looked just as surprised as I was to see a colorful rainbow in my daughter's room. So much so that she quickly about faced and squeaked.





Please ignore the black dots on the rug! They are from when the kids used to shake their juice cups. UGH!

It is a pretty cool rainbow no?

Wow!!! What a place to find a rainbow. I think Stormy is a bit disappointed though that he didn't get the pot of gold.
