Things are growing around my yard.
Now I know that lot's of you love to show your flowers.
Things are a bit different around my yard.

For instance.....

We have 1000's of baby tadpoles in our pond.
Are there any other kind????
Not sure.
Ahhhh, summer love~

Then, Bradley just goes up and grabs this bad boy.
Oh heck, maybe it's a girl.....I have no idea.
Too be honest, I don't really care if it's a boy or girl.
I just don't want it in my house!!!

He actually asked if he could keep it.
Now, I have to say, I do think I'm a pretty cool mom.
I let all sorts of things happen. He could have most types of pets.
I love furry things......cats, dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats.
Really anything for the most part.
There are two things that just can't come into this house.
SNAKES & birds.

Sorry Bradley.
Better luck next time!

Oh my....yes, daughter wants a snake, but I say not until you live in your own digs!!! NOT in my house! ;0


Sarah said...

LOL! Totally there with you! I am not letting snakes or birds in my house either! We raised a tadpole into a frog, that was a fascinating event about 18 months ago, but he croaked after a few months, he snuck out one night and died in the act, poor guy!
Enjoy watching the tads, they grow quickly!

Devri said...

oh No he didn't!!!!

did you put the tadpoles in your pond, or did they just show up.. We just put fish in our pond, and I want tadpoles, but don't know if I want frogs everywhere.

Tara said...

Oh no, is this what I am in for? No snakes in my house either, or snails or slugs or grasshoppers, well maybe grasshoppers...happy Wednesday~

Just be happy! said...

oh my, it's hard to say no to that cut face, but I have to agree with you: no snakes!

The Kramer Angle said...

Oh my gosh! You'd take rats before snakes? Too funny! At least snakes are sorta good looking. Rats are just terrifying!

As the mom of a ten year old with a corn snake - I have to tell you, it's not that bad! We did guppies one time too - it just didn't have a happy ending.

Jeanneoli said...

Sue said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Enjoying visiting your blog- the snakes, not so much BUT missing my boys who did- they grew up too darn fast!

Christina said...

Yes, snakes stay outside! Far, far away. We had in our bathroom last summer---yes, inside! I had to kill it while screaming and yelling. Then I cried. And no, it wasn't poisonous, but I didn't know or care until after.
