**Insert really cool and authentic Australian accent** "Do you like my necklace mate"? (Ok, he didn't say "mate" but really he should have)
Do you want to wear it mate? (Seriously, he should have been using that phrase)
"This snake is a Bawl Python. She's full grown. She could eat your baby sister. What? You want this for a pet? Ask you mum. I'm sure she'd be ok with it" (Yes, he used the word "mum". Don't forget to read all this with above said cool Australian accent)
"My extremely large, oddly tame snake gives nose tickles. Here's your nose tickle mate. (Don't ALL Australians use that word a lot? Is it weird he didn't?)
"Alrighty then Mates, this here is my baby snake. He's not full grown. He is only like nine feet long. He'll get to be like 900 feet long. He could eat you. But you can come up and hold him."
"Easy now mates this big guy is heavy but he won't hurt you because he too is strangely calm and I think I might have tranquilized him"
"And now it is time for the mums to come up and hold the snake". This mum only got to hold the tail. So I was disappointed because I actually like snakes. Don't particularly want to own one, but they are pretty cool. And then the "mum" next to me decided to investigate how a snake goes to the bathroom. Really? You get to hold a ginormous snake and you ask that? She's clearly not my mate.
**I so don't remember his exact dialogue so I made it up. He for sure didn't use the word "mate" which was most disappointing, and he for sure DID use the words "mum" and "nose tickles". That's the facts as I remember them**
Snug loves life. At eight years old, he is a big brother four times over, a role he takes very seriously. He loves to read, swim, run, play Legos, and hear stories. He is sensitive to the needs of others and has a very kind heart.
Little Monkey Man
Watch out world! This middle child is not about to be left out of anything! Formally known on this blog as "Baby J" he is a baby no longer. His sense of adventure is downright dangerous and he will push your buttons all day long. This six year old is very generous and has a sweet smile that will light up a room. Don't let him use his "eyes" on you or you may fall under his spell!
Four years old and quite the little lady. Not sure what we'll do with all of her emotions, but loving watching her grow. She loves ballet, preschool, and church and all of her friends-both real and stuffed variety.
She's three! Hard to believe how fast time goes by. She's my girl and she's demands lots of my love. Growing, changing, and making us all laugh (and scream...not gonna lie), this little one is so precious.
Oh this baby. Easiest one, cheeriest one. Laid back, happy, sweet.
