Six-Year-Old Uses Birthday Money to Buy Her Brother a Hamster
Six-year-old Abby in New Jersey recently got a pet hamster and her brother, Daniel, has been doing extra chores and going above and beyond to earn money to buy himself one.
Abby decided to use her birthday money to buy him the hamster he wanted. The video below shows her surprising him with it. Warning: He got so emotional and it gets pretty dusty.
From the mother's Facebook post:
So ever since Abby got her hamster Daniel had been busting his butt doing extra chores and going above and beyond to earn money to buy himself one. We added up Abigail's birthday money and gift cards and she had $55 total. I asked her what she wanted to do with her money and she says, "I want to surprise Daniel and buy him his hamster. He has been working soooo hard." I asked her numerous times of she was sure that's what she wanted to do with her money and she never faltered. Daniel went over to a friend's house to have a sleepover and we took Abby to pet smart where she asked for the exact hamster Daniel said he wanted, held it to make sure it was nice and excitedly told the woman all about how she was surprising her brother. We got it home, set it up and she she couldn't wait for him to get home from his sleep over so he could be surprised and meet and name his hamster. This is the video of him meeting "Cubby."
