mommy, there’s an iguana in the garage!” cline hollered into the house.
not too concerned, i sent hudson out to check on it.
“it’s a really big mouse” he reported

putting the two together, iguana and really big mouse, i decided maybe it was a rat in our garage.  not wanting to be a panicy female, i made myself investigate before calling clint home.  (investigate from inside the van shining a flash light under the cabinets while hudson poked around with a broom handle.)

image my surprise and disgust when the invader was found – seems my boys have over active imaginations

i’ve always wanted a pet!” cline claimed, and so our first (then second, then third) toad pet was claimed.  their names changed by the hour from “big sherif” to “little sherif”, “buck” to “spot” to name just a few.
the boys researched on the internet and learned what kind of bugs (live crickets being a favorite) they needed to find to feed their pets.  ugh!

the first 50 times i listened to the disney hit “let it go”,  i guiltily enjoyed it, liking the tune but not the message.  unfortunately my kiddos are still loving it after what seems’s like the 1,000 time.

it’s at this point of packing for vacation every year that i’m hit with the rogue thought, “is it worth it??????”  the thought leaves, only to return with a vengeance upon return home
