OMG…WE FOUND THE SNAIL!

Yes…we found the little crusty bugger.

I say crusty, because he ended up in a basket full of clean clothes only to be discovered this morning as I got the kids ready for daycare and summer camp. As I was helping Baby girl put on a pair of socks, out he fell of one of them looking like he had a very adventurous time in the dryer. We all looked down at the same time and all I could think to say was….

‘OMG….WE FOUND THE SNAIL!”

Poor Baby girl was up on the steps refusing to come down until Diva girl took matters into her own hands.

Literally….

She picked up that poor dried out sucker and put him in the garbage. Thank God cuz as clean as he was, I still didn’t want to touch it.

Many questions come to mind now that the snail has departed from his earthly realm. Where had he been all this time? What did he see on his adventures? What lessons did he learn about life?

Ummm….never joy ride in a Maytag???

What….too soon?

The Snail saga is now over.

THERE IS A SNAIL IN MY HOUSE CONT’D

So….we still haven’t found the snail.

Is it possible for it to still be alive somewhere in the house, surviving on dust and humidity, slowly growing into a giant mutant version of its former self waiting for the day it can exact its revenge on the family that took it out of its natural habitat?????

What?

Too much?

THERE IS A SNAIL IN MY HOUSE

 

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.
