A Boy and his Frog







I know this picture will make some of your stomachs' turn, but I couldn't resist showing you this funny photo. Joseph was delighted when Julianna found him a frog. He carried the poor critter around while he played outside. Several times I thought that the amphibian had gone on to his reward, but he survived being squeezed by a toddler. When the frog got all dirty, I suggested that he probably needed water. No problem; Samuel got a bucket of water for him and Joseph just dunked the frog every once in a while. I watched him run around with this dripping frog, and I just had to laugh. We talked him into returning him to the back yard so we could eat supper. He said, "The frog needed to go back so he could see his sister." He also thought that his mom and dad had been run over by a lawn mower. I just love kids. Oh, by the way, Joseph is not really touching the frog with his tongue--it just looks that way. I do like frog legs, but prefer mine cooked.

Too too cute! Now I need to address the comment on Kayla's blog about grilled lizards! Sherilyn really...i don't think I have ever been that desperate for food even during the numerous hurricanes that we went through while in Fl.! You made me laugh out loud! Very cute pictures. I hope I have a little boy next. They look so mischievious!

Joseph sure looks excited holding that frog! I love the second picture. The first one is OK too, it didn't turn my stomach. The frog is probably a lot cleaner than we think. -- Esther

Cute pics! My Corey has loved ANYTHING "creepy-crawley" since he was about two! He currently has a "leopard-gecko" and a "hermit-crab" in his room. We have had a variety of toads, frogs, insects,etc.! Don't you just love being a Mom?(smile)
