Mommy, Can I PLEASE..... Get a Pet?

My son came to me a few weeks ago and asked if he could PLEASE........... get a pet. Well, I had to consider, because I am very fond of animals and was willing to hear what type of animal he wanted to bring into our home as part of our family. Now, I really like animals- almost all animals, with just one exception. I can't stand snakes. They make my skin crawl! My son could have been asking for a tarantula, cockroach, rat, lizard you name it... but of course, he wants the one animal that I truly dislike, a snake! Now, I do want him to have the opportunity to care for a snake if that is really what he wants as his pet, but I am hoping his desire will wain. Eleven year old boys can be hyper-focused on one thing, and then by the next week something else has come along and they forget all about their previous obsession. That is what I am hoping at least :) Who knows, maybe we will be adding a snake to the family. I don't quite think he or she (can you even tell them apart?) will make it into the family Christmas card, but who knows- maybe I'll change my mind too.
