Pets

If you ask me, pets have their place. It just isn't in my house. Okay, I'm not that bad. We have an aquarium with a couple of fish: Joe (Bradley's fish), and The Little Mermaid [NOT Ariel] (Emmy's fish). In the past we've had a crab - Alice, and a turtle - Willy and for the most part, they've all been good experiences. Lately we've been finding animals in our yard that I would just rather stay in our yard - NOT in our house.

The other evening when Ste was hedging, this little guy introduced himself to us.
Meet Tyler the Frog. You know if they get a name, they're apart of the family.
Watch out he's fast.

We kept Tyler overnight in our pool, but then we all felt bad for him and let him go.

Then this thing reared it's ugly head.....and ugly legs and ugly face, eyes, etc.
You see, it's leg was taken in the battle. And you know how I am with relativity. I had to measure it for proof that it was 3 inches.
Luckily this one didn't ever get a name. But the kids still wanted to keep it.
I don't think so.

I'm no Mike C* but give me some credit for picking this poisonous, ravenous monster up off the ground (twice). Bradley stuck out his hand in an attempt to teach Emmy to be brave but when I tried to place the little green guy in his hands he just said, "Oh, I don't want to hold it, I just wanted to show Emmy what to do with her hands". That's my brave, big, bold, Bradley.

Yuck! That spider is disgusting! I'm glad you didn't let them keep it! It gives me the chills just to look at it!

Maybe he'll sleep at the foot of one of the kids' beds with them. Now that's a pet!

I'm with you on that one. I don't mind lizards or frogs but when it comes to snakes and spiders it's not going to happen in my house either.
