A Song of Snails


Is that part of a bug in your hand, you ask? Why yes, yes it is. Why is it in your hand? Do you really want to know? I bet you can already guess. I just fished it out of my 3 year old's mouth. He will not admit as to how this insect managed to find its way into his mouth though. And if you look at the picture again you'll notice there's only half a bug there. It must have been fate. Yesterday Ali from Cheaper Than Therapy mentioned her daughter pretending to be a frog and eating a bug and I commented that my kids didn't do that.

Friday night I was sitting in front of the computer reading somebody's blog when I noticed something sticking out of my keyboard. I blew on it thinking it would go away, instead it crawled back inside the keyboard. Ick. I think it might have come from this:


Jen from Steenky Bee had written a very nice post about her mother and then Blogger ate it. I'd been out pruning the garden and sent a pic to her for her mom. Because I'm that kinda nice. *blush* I'm assuming the little bugger fell out of the flower and onto my keyboard. I'm also assuming it's the same guy Liam snacked on. Oh, and Jen asked if she could use the flower picture for her mom's post she's going to re-post... that sentence sucks, but I'm not fixing it. Anyway, if you see this picture on her site, just pretend like you never saw before. Our secret.

Oh ya, and the snail song.

Don't worry if you can't understand the song, I couldn't either. He sang it perfectly clear before the camera came on. Then it was all mumbles. Damn kids.

  1. Liam puts an instant smile on my face. Probably because I don't have to live with toddlers anymore. The snail song started off like "We Are Marching to Praetoria." Why a roomful of little American kids would be singing this I've no idea, but it was in my grade school music book.

  3. And right now he's sitting in my lap demanding to watch trailers for Wall-E and it's not even 7am. I want to enjoy this time, don't get me wrong, but when does the sleeping til noon thing start?

  5. Bug eater! At least the little guy's getting his protein. I also commend your choice of reading. It warms my heart to think I'd in any way be remotely responsible for your son eating half a bug. Also, the gig is up! You're totally busted on the pic! If I ever make my way to Canada....well, I'll look you up. Besides, Supreme Leader seems like a very good cook. Maybe she could rustle us up some grub. But I would like my grub bug free.

  6. Uck. Eating bugs. I would say it's a boy thing, but my little Avery used to put anything and everything in her mouth, including bugs. Gag.

    Also, your little guy is too cute, collecting snails in the Spidey costume.

  9. My son likes to watch Liam mostly because they have the same outfit. Well, I'm now being told that it's not an outfit, but a costume, rather. He's adorable. How do you get him not to pee on everything outdoors. Sadly it is not the snails killing our flowers, but my son's urinating habbits.
