Vroeteldier dag

Today the kids could take their pets to school.  In Afrikaans, troeteldiere.  Boeta (actually, he prefers to be called Wouter these days *insert rolling eyes*) seems to think that the correct word is “vroeteldiere”.  Which translates as “fidget animals”.  It is actually a beautiful word, I think.  So from now we officially have vroeteldiere in our house.

After today Wouter has decided that he wants a hamster as vroeteldier.  I’m not convinced.

Carien still seems convinced that she is the only pet anyone should want or need.  Mommy’s pet.  Teacher’s pet.  That’s Carien.

  1. We have a darf vroeteldier her in our office – we ae a bit weird like that. But it is cute, low maintenace and company

  2. Kry vir hom ‘n rot. ‘n Wyfie rot. Hulle is liefderik en intelligent en hou actually daarvan om hanteer te word. Jy voer haar sommer enige ding en sy is gelukkig.

    “n Hamster is ‘n nagdier, vol nukke en sommige byt selfs. Hulle pie stink ook nogal. Ek het albei al gehad en ek weet waarvan ek praat.

    Kry hom ‘n rot! hoef nie ‘n witte te wees met rooi oë nie. Jy kry baie mooi ander kleure. Ek het tans ‘n pragtige swart rot, by name Asjas.

  3. aaaah i love that term – very apt!
