My fourth-born is in college in Maine.
Her fun spark is seriously missed at home.
As the State of Maine considers hedgehogs verboten,
she had to leave her beloved Asha Ava on Nantucket.
Ava's doing fine. My third-born has taken over
bathing, nail clipping duties,
and carrying her around in her shirt for company.
Ava's not prickly unless she's upset.
This is her new game. She pushes her nose into a split
toilet paper tube until it's on her back. We call it 'turtling'.
She looks like a Roman soldier in Turtle Formation.
