Today was hot… and I don’t cope well with the heat.
By the time that the kids came home from school, I was ready to find a nice quiet corner and have a quick snooze before heading out to the school picnic.
Just as I was getting myself settled, I hear Master Ten calling out from his bedroom:
“MUUUUUUMMMMM… I think that LIZARDY has escaped!”
Usually Lizardy doesn’t stay in the bedroom. But today there was a crochet meet at my place, and I thought that he might be safer away from toddler fingers. So Master Ten had hidden the pet box away in his room.
Which seemed like a good idea at the time…
And I was really puzzled about how the lizard could have possibly escaped…
So the questions began:
mum – “Where did you leave his box?”
boy – “On my bed”
mum – “How do you think he got the lid off?”
boy – “I didn’t put it on”
mum – “Why not?”
boy – “I didn’t know that I had to”
Well, after much searching, we finally located the the little creature INSIDE my son’s pillowcase! Glad he was discovered BEFORE bedtime…
