Tell me Thursday

Yesterday for wordless Wednesday I showed some pictures of what little boys are made of.

We had a birthday party for my grandma this last weekend to celebrate her 80th. For her birthday she asked that we do some work in her back yard. While weeding her flower beds I found a snail and knew immediately that Bug would love to see it.

Grandma found a nice plastic container to put it in and we put in some water from her pond along with some rocks and leaves. Bug was so excited about it, as new people arrived for the party he was excited to show them his new pet.

When Bug wasn't looking my aunts boyfriend Jim slipped another snail into the plastic container. As more great grand kids showed up Bug ran to his container to show them. He slipped the lid off only to find not one but TWO snails. The look on his face was priceless. Shocked he looked at me "Mom, the snail had a baby!" We all chuckled and didn't say a word as he made his rounds showing everyone the baby snail that just showed up.

When we got home husband couldn't stand telling him a lie any longer and explained what really happened. Poor Bug got a shocked look on his face and said " But I told all those other kids that my snail had a baby!!" Then he said in the next breath " That Jim! I'm gonna get him the next time I see him!"

When I googled to find out what snails eat there was a little tip at the bottom of the page that said "If you have two snails, you will end up with baby snails"

Great, just what I wanted. :P
