What would I do without Anna

My 4 year old Elizabeth had something she urgently wanted me to see in the room she shares with her sisters. She made me go first. She insisted I turn on the light before even I entered (awww she was lookin' out for me). Then she pointed. Out from under her dresser I saw it, it was just our lego whale. If any of you have a lego whale you know what I saw. It did look kinda gross sticking out, and it is about 4" long. I laughed and picked it up. wasn't the whale, it was alive (or recently alive!) I threw that thing back on the floor and hollered for Anna (I always call Anna for the gross animal related things, she's planning to become a vet, I am helping her when I have her do these things, right?) On top of of Elizabeth's dresser sits an aquarium. Why didn't I think of this when I went to pick that thing up?! It was our 4" long plecostomous the girls named Little Professor. It was gross. Anna picked it up, plopped it in the tank, looked at me, and walked away shaking her head and laughing. Hey, had I realized what it was right away I would have picked it up. O.K. not really, but I wouldn't have freaked out, I would have just asked Anna to get it.

Hey, she's a pro at emptying mouse traps too.

Ew. Ick. Yep, Anna is fabulous. But still ew...

And now here I am reading this just before bed. If I have bad dreams about picking up semi dead things all night I am going to blame you!
