I'm taking care of things at my parents' place while they're out of town. Today that included deadheading the rosebushes I planted out front years and years ago. This was actually done in self-interest, as I'm cutting myself a bouquet of roses for my dining room table every week. Today also included weeding their vegetable and herb beds, during which chore Rey, one of their cats, tried desperately to get under my hands to elicit gentle caresses. I summoned the Squiddle to help. His exact phrasing was "Rey, you naughty kitty. Come out of there!"

My baby, all grown up and talking in complete comprehensible sentences. (Sometimes.) It wasn't that long ago that he was at "Wei, wheh ah yu?" when talking to her....

Of course, I was slightly less pleased by his opining that a snail was yucky. I mean, sure I don't want them in among my vegetables, but I'm even less sanguine about him disliking them because of... reasons. Whatever they are. I suspect Peppa Pig may be to blame for this one.

Oh dear, yucky snails - they do pick these things up so easily, don't they? Although I find most people are ok about the snails, but the slugs are a whole other ball of wax - somehow that shell makes all the difference. We just read 'The Snail's Spell" for our preschool storytime this week - my naturalist came up with the most adorable snail craft with little eyes on sticks that the kids could extend or draw back from their snail, it was genius ^^
