Rotten Little Stinker
A friend shared this image on facebook today.
I may have mentioned it before but spiders tend to be a theme around here:
I don't like them.
My kids think it's funny.
...So it reminded me that yesterday evening, I'm sweeping the kitchen floor and come across a half dollar sized dead spider.
My youngest points it out to me as he's passing by, to make sure I know I've swept up this huge dead spider (his words).
I said, "I know....It's giving me the heebie geebies!"
After asking what heebie geebies were, and getting a visual demonstration completely with shiver and squeak, he said it didn't bother him.
So I said he could help me and get the dust pan.
He responded, "I'll get the dustpan and I'll help you-- but you have to sweep in the spider and face your fear, Momma.... (as an afterthought and with a evil little giggle) I'm helping you get over your fear."
There was much squeaking on my part.
And much laughing on his.
