From the desk of Inara, the white Mommy glider.
I must admit that I don’t adore photo graphs and my love Mal, well he doesn’t like being woken up so you can imagine our mood when this photo was taken. Yes yes, 9pm but we are new parents and we like to sleep in. Isn’t it rude to just drop in on the new family and then over stay your welcome?
Of course I did show off my joeys eventually but no one but me can hold them still. I am insistent on this.
And of course everyone is wondering what colors my little ones are.
Here are some hints:
I am a Leu and my parents are a Leu and a Plat
Daddy is a WFB and possible minimally marked Mosaic and also het for Leu
What do you think?
My name is Inara and I am having Joeys. I can’t tell you when because like human babies, they are ready to come out when they are ready to come and we should respect that, even if they keep us up all night kicking us in the bladder!
I will not tell you what they look like but here is a peak:

One this beautiful of nights my little minions give me a break to go climb the Lady for a change. You see these two little ones never want to leave me alone. Yes, I am a good mother but there are boundaries every mother needs to set and mine is rather simple, do not expect to cling to me 24/7! My other offspring have understood this but not these two.
Lady scolded me the other night as I had grounded one of my children, literally. I left it in the wheel calling for me at the bottom of the cage. I told the little guy that I had work to do but he would not stay in bed. He insisted on riding on my back and fell off during the commute you see. He needed some time to think about not listening to me next time. Lady did not however agree as she bolted from her slumber, blinding all the royal creatures in room with light and took my little one out of the wheel and placed him back with his sibling and father in the sleeping pouch. I came over to her to sniff, to check on my trouble maker, and then to escape quick before he cling on to me again. It really gets old I tell you. I just need some time to myself.
Lady seems to think this is not good mothering. I reminder her all my Joeys have thrived in the past though. Still she scolds me and checks up on me and mine often. As long as she gives me treats when she does it though I will forgive her and let her baby sit for me for a while. Daddy baby sits often, heck he hardly wants to go out these days even. I think everyone need to just relax a bit more don’t you?
I see the Lady glaring at me. Best I get back to my minions before she turns the lights on again!

Inara has two little bumps in her pouch. Can you see it? Ignore the messy cage, tomorrow is cage cleaning day! Isn’t her tail envy worthy?
Petals New Joeys Almost out of pouch. I know it looks like they are out but I have yet to see a head so this could mean they are still attached. Shortly after taking this photo I was holding the Mama and the babies both climbed completely back in. The thing I noticed first about the Joeys is that one is very furred and one is less so. They are both standards so I am guessing the second Joey was born and attached a few days after the first.
I am Stitch, and this is my stick!
In the wild I would chew and suck the sap from gum trees and eucalyptus. This is eucalyptus in my cage, tastes great, smells great, makes me feel a bit wild! Perfect Munchy for this Blog Party I think!
Petal with her Joey bump in her pouch, playing with eater eggs, trying to get them open for the glider treats inside! Yogurt drops and Mealie worms! Party Treats are Here too! Time to party!
Any day now the Joeys will be out, a great reason to party and we will be sure to share photos of them here!
