Abby Stout is the best sister anyone could ever want; her big brother Daniel will definitely testify to that. After Abby got a furry hamster, Daniel wanted one for himself. The nine-year-old had been working hard and doing extra chores to earn enough money to buy his own pet. Abby had $55 in total from her birthday money. When her mom, Rachel Stout, asked the six-year-old what she planned to use the cash on, her answer was simple, “I want to surprise Daniel and buy him his hamster. He has been working soooo hard.” The family waited for Daniel to go to a friend’s house for a sleepover to prepare the surprise. When he returned the next day, it was his sister who may have gotten the biggest surprise at his reaction. Her question for him at 0:28 will melt your heart.
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.” Daniel Stout Posted by Rachel Stout on Monday, February 15, 2016
