THERE IS A SNAIL IN MY HOUSE

on May 11, 2013

 

Last week Diva girl came home with a snail. Not like she just picked up and brought it home, well I guess she did really. The teachers in their infinite wisdom, encouraged the children to collect a snail and put it in a Styrofoam cup with blades of grass and cover with saran wrap in which they poked a few holes.

So being the encouraging and open-minded mom that I am, my first thought when I saw this was…

EWWW….GROSS!!!

However, as I try to embrace (kind of) my daughter’s tomboy-ish phase and not freak out at every little thing, I let her bring that snail home. Besides, it really had moved all day (she assured me…)

We put it by the patio doors for light and then Diva girl and I would find another container to put it in.

Well, we couldn’t find anything and we were busy doing homework and getting ready for the next day.

I was exhausted, but I do remember asking her father if the snail would be fine where it was and he shrugged me off with one of those ‘you worry too much’ shrugs (you know the ones I mean) and said yes, it hadn’t moved since she’d brought it home.

Well, needless to say that when we woke up the next morning…

THE SNAIL WAS GONE

I said….THE SNAIL WAS GONE

Somewhere in my house, there is a snail on the loose. We looked all over the living room and cannot find it!

Really? How does a snail of all things finally decide to move so quickly that we can’t locate it??? Why would it want to go exploring in MY house? Why not stay with the grass?

It could be anywhere!!!

Ugh….THERE IS A SNAIL IN MY HOUSE

Sigh…I really hope it doesn’t find its way into Sunday dinner.
