Almost every parent will face that inevitable moment when your kids plead for a furry rodent of their very own—and now Chrissy Teigen is officially one of those parents. Teigen bought a hamster for her daughter Luna and then turned to Twitter when she she realized exactly what she just walked into.

Teigen whipped up Twitter in a tizzy with a string of tweets about the latest addition to their family: a hamster named Peanut Butter. Teigen’s first tweet on the subject is one many will relate to as Teigen and husband John Legend were clearly divided over whether or not getting a hamster was even a good idea in the first place.

After that introduction, it should come as no surprise to fellow “hamster moms” that things have been pretty eventful at their house since Peanut Butter came home. The hairy Houdini already made an escape not once, but twice.

And like many parents who bring a hamster home without doing much research, Teigen has discovered just how wacky these little fur balls can be.
