So, of course, when Drew's children demanded a pet, Drew decided to share that milestone with the world, even though it might make some people cringe.
She posted a hilarious video on Instagram of her and (presumably) one of her new pets, a white mouse, literally climbing all over her shoulders and in her hair.
"When your daughter has been asking for mice for so many years and you finally cave #petco #momlife", she wrote in her caption.
It isn't clear which daughter truly desired to have the pet mice, but the video is narrated by by one of them, who can be heard saying "Cuz if we keep them in the same cage..." indicating there will be more than one.
And you better believe Drew is giving the "What am I getting myself into?!" eyes straight into the camera.

Drew's followers had mixed opinions about the post, with some going the horrified route: " my worst nightmare!! " Meanwhile, another fan assured Drew she's soon get used to her new furry friends: "My boys talked me into pet rats...I was terrified. We laugh now because now I sit and watch TV with them sleeping on my shoulder. Lol."
Regardless of how Drew and her children fare with their new pets, I'm sure she'll teach them a few important lessons along the way.
After all, she's already teaching her daughters the importance of aging . "If were lucky, we are all going to age. I just want them to be at peace with who they are and not what they look like," she said.
Good luck with those new pets, Drew!
