My Wicked Child

My children have a wicked sense of humor (obviously they get that from their father).   Not having a blog way back in  1997 (in fact, being very reluctant to even touch the compter if the truth be told) I used to send Shaun little updates throughout the day.  Shaun just stumbled across this one and forwarded it to me.  I thought it was only fair to post it, because if I’d had a blog ten years ago, you know I would have posted then.

Your lovely daughters were outside playing, when all of a sudden your eldest comes in with her hand behind her back and a big mischievous grin on her face. She tells me that she has found a very special surprise for me. Then, with a flourish she whips her hand out and presents me with a large…snail!

Then she cackled like a madman, quite pleased with her (bad)self!!

The end




Just for the record, snails have always grossed me out.  And KT knew that.

    At least it wasn’t a spider. That would have made me pee my pants.

    Snails aren’t so bad. I can outrun them. LOL

  3. Kell says:

    Ew. Snails are just so slimy.

    Years ago, a friend’s 4 year old daughter collected a few snails in a plastic pail. She gave them some grass and checked on them occasionally. Hours later, when she spotted one that had painstakingly made its way up the side and almost to the lip of the pail, she let out an emergency alert. “Daddy! Hurry! The snails are escaping!”

    Funny! And yes, definitely blog fodder, so I’m glad your husband came across it! 😉

    I hope that you are laughing about it now with us! My husband and his brother used to tease my MIL because she is afraid of snakes until the day that his brother saw a real snake and screamed and ran. Thanks for sharing this!

    If your mother is grossed out by snails then it is the JOB of the child to show them to you as a surprise from time to time. Your role is to be the one who screams or goes pale. It’s in the rule book.

  8. Snails *are* awfully creepy. I’ll get really close to take photos of them and I’ll eat them if my OH makes them, but I won’t be having one as a pet anytime soon.

    It would have been so great to have had a blog when my kids were little. They did such fun things. 🙂 My son once brought a baby mole in a box to my bed and tipped to box to ask me what is was. It woke me up rather quickly hearing the little claws on the box. Scared the beejeebers out of me. 🙂

    Haha, it would have been funny on video to see your reaction. I love creepy crawlies..I think it is why my Mia does too

    We used to play the “your daughter/son” game when appropriate! Snails have always fascinated me – even the slugs that crawl up the garden plants.

    Knowing the size of those big brown speckled ones that grow in the Seattle area…. UGH.

    I actually photographed one a year or so ago and it’s in my archives.

  13. Ann says:

    ha! I’m that very way with rodents. It could be the teeniest tinyest list munchkin mouse and I would fureak OUT!!

    So glad you stopped by. I love meeting now bloggers especially locals!
