A recent phone call

as in 5 minutes ago from my 11 yo Kay who is at the Jersey Shore with my friend E.

Kay: Hi mom, can I get a hermit crab for a souvenir?

me: What?!?

Kay: They are only 2 dollars each

Me: What?!?

Kay: I can get it a cage and food for like 12 dollars

Me: This is a joke right?

Kay: please??? They are so cute!

Me: I doubt that very much. We are going to the Cape soon.

Kay: Nana and Monka will love it and it can travel in the cage!

Me: Ummmmm, ok?

Kay: Great, I have enough money for 2. Love you, bye! click

It could always be worse...... xo, Brie

Yeah, just make sure she doesn't get a boy and a girl! Then you'll really be having some fun soon :)

Maybe you can paint them up with your new ELF makeup!

Pretty sure those are going to stink, but points for them being easy to transport. I think you are going to have a long summer ahead of you.

What's the life span of a hermit crab? Hopefully about the same as the goldfish you win at fun fairs!:)

Now when people ask how your summer was, you can tell them you got crabs.

Sigh . . . Gotta love motherhood!

I allowed a pair of millipedes to come home from a school project. Like any good mom, I sent them to my husband's office. ;-)

We don't know if Milli & Peedi are girls, boys or one of each. No signs of baby millipedes yet, though.
