How to convince my parents to get a Ball Python?

Hi so my mom wont let me get a Ball Python because it eats mice. I already own a Leopard Gecko and Hedgehog. I would buy it when my Gecko dies (it already is pretty old.) I can't keep mice in the freezer with foods because my mom doesn't want them there. My dad likes reptiles so it shouldn't be as hard to convince him but if my mom doesn't agree to it then neither will he. Also I can't buy a small college-like freezer (those small ones) because she says its too much money to pay for energy. I don't think she means that. I think its just an excuse for me not to get a snake. Any ideas because I really don't have any other then beg her for it...

Why not let your mom enjoy living in her own house and get the pet she really doesn't want to be around when you have a place of your own?

Sorry for responding so late but because I want a pet and when I am older instead of a snake I will have a Marmoset Monkey. Why? Because it's also MY room. I love my parents but they aren't that territorial not to let me get things I really want. This was about convincing not telling me to let my mom enjoy her time. She would probably enjoy it anyway after the fact I got a Snake. She would see it's better then she thought.

Just speaking from the perspective of having a niece who is a herpetophile and a sister who lived in terror of finding one of her many creatures outside the confines of their cages. I, too, am an animal lover and begged for pets all the time when I lived at home, but now that I am on the other side (so to speak) I can understand where your mom is coming from.
Maybe just telling her that you can understand why she isn't excited will move her more towards letting you have one.
