Do you remember the snail that Vera loved? Well, chica has a new pet, this one found scurrying around our house when we came home for lunch. I would love to be able to say that I have matured since her last obsession and I handled it very calmly. Uhm...yeah, no! Instead, I grabbed the kids and ran to our neighbor's house to ask him to come and catch it.
Once it was safely in the tupperware I still felt no great urge to approach it. Vera didn't have the same reservations. As Adam took the photo she felt good about putting her foot near it to help give a size comparison. Tell me you wouldn't be a little nervous...it has to be a good 6-7 inches. I still believe it would have had no trouble clearing the lip of that container.
Then, although you can't see it here, she started petting it!
