Maya, Gowb, Lola and Perdy
Unlike the infamous Millie, Hazel & Jeannie, these really exist. The latest members of our family. I think I've lost my mind. We have Tamagotchis. It started with Becca, the one thing that she requested for her birthday was a Tamagotchi. Enter Maya. Yeah, same name as Becca's big sister, she said she panicked and couldn't think of another name. It gets a bit confusing with Maya, Tama-Maya and the downstairs neighbour Maya. So much for a unique name ;) But I digress. Why do we have more than one? James designated himself the official Tama watcher, he took Becca's to school with him to take care of it during the day. So I got him his own - Gowb. Apparently there was a cat on a cartoon that bit a person and that was the sound it made while biting. Yes, he's using cartoon sounds for names. Maya pouted when James got one so tada, it's Lola! I couldn't stand it for longer than another day, so I have Perdy. Ooops, forgot, Lola is likely named that for the main character on Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen but Maya won't admit it. Perdy is a nod to my oldest who, when I was pregnant with my second, told me in all seriousness that, if I had a boy it should be Pongo and a girl should be Perdy.
