Quote of the week courtesy of the darling hubby in the hood: "I wonder if I am ever going to miss having to say 'Go get your pants on!' all the time." And for all you nasty-minded ones, he was not talking about me when he said this.
And courtesy of the crazy 2 year old: "Dear Heavenly Father, I love you God. I hope Nate don't pull my hair. And I hope Abby don't pester me. A-MEN!"For those who really know me, you know for a fact that I despise snakes. Pure evil, I tell ya. They slither and slide and are natural born killers...not to mention the fact that they just give me the heebeegeebees.
So, we come home from taking the kidsChristmas-light sight-seeing last night, and I go bee bopping around the van to get Nate out of his car seat. What is curled up waiting for me behind the van?
He almost ate me.
I screamed, just like any sane person would do when faced with 2 needle-sharp fangs slithering your way.You know what my crazy hubs did? He danced around the long evil one until he got in a good position to PICK IT UP! And then he let our precious little girls pet it...like it was some kind of animal of something. Emma especially loved that it wrapped its tail around her finger and cut off all circulation so that we must now discuss amputation. I promise, I think she would have slept with the snake if we would have let her. She loved it and kept trying to pet its head...where the poison is stationed and everything.
However, I think Emma only loved the dang thing so much because she knew that I hated it. Yes Em, she's our little teenager in a toddler body. She makes a point to love the things we don't approve of. If 2 years old is anything like 15, we are in trubble with a capital TRUB.
Just at dinner last night, she proclaimed that she hated puppies. (loves snakes, hates puppies...get this? HELP!) I piped up that "hate" is such a strong word and I didn't like her using it, to which she replies, "But I hate them."The snake...well, I hope it was smothered to death since Jay let the evil thing loose in the front yard where my children play and I walk around barefoot. He's going to eat us all. Nevermind the fact that it was about 8 inches long.
