Creepy Crawlies

Ahhh to be a mother of boys! My children are animal lovers - which is awesome. Brayden in particular wants every single animal/creature/bug/ect. that he finds to be his pet of the week. And by pet I mean he plays with it for like a day or two and doesnt take care of it at all and leaves all of the real work to mommy :-)

For over a year now, every single fly we ever happen to have haphazardly trapped in out jeep and buzzing around our faces has been Braydens pet fly, Cindy. There was once a real Cindy, but she didnt last more than about 5 minutes before being scurried out the window. Mike nor I had the heart to tell him, so from now Cindy just comes to visit us sometimes on hot summer days.

My husband is pretty much just a big kid too and he totally buys into the "lets catch things and keep them as our pets" way of like. Running down the runway at the airport that Mike works at we caught our newest addition, Brian the lizard.

Ha! I read that as "Brain the Lizard."

"What'll we do tonight?"

"Take over the world!"

Cindy the fly! She sounds very friendly, always popping in to say hello!
