Today I stepped on a snake. It was very much alive. I was taking Mary Jane for a walk and I stepped on what felt like a very large worm. I turned around and there was a little brown snake, about a foot long I guess, flicking it's little tongue at me in protest. I'm pretty sure it was one of these. After that, every little stick looked like a snake to me.

Of course, my first thought was how I couldn't wait to tell the boys about this.

Oh wow, that would've freaked me out. Did the boys think it was cool when you told them?

Did your boys go nuts as much as my boys did when they found a rather large snake in our disused tank?!?!? I thought males were supposed to be fearful of snakes - not these crazy funsters! Naomi

Luckily it wasn't one of the snakes like I had in my porch. That thing would have eaten Mary Jane alive! lol

I have been terrible at leaving comments lately. I am happy for you and your beautiful pigtails. Men are no help at all. My Hope is finally able to have a little pony tail on the top of her head and everyone asks how I find the hair to make it. And poor you with that snake. I do not like snakes. My girls would have screamed!!

Maybe he will learn not to crawl where you are walking! :)

I stepped on a frog once while I was walking in the dark with a "friend" before I met Bob. My friend just laughed at me as I limped on (I wasn't hurt, just really grossed out!) - hoping I didn't have frog guts on the bottom of my sandal clad foot! After that I dodged every dark spot in the road and winced every time I stepped on something!

Hey! Fellow Boymom! First, I cannot believe you didn't freak out! I would have jumped a mile high! Course here in Arizona, snakes are mostly all deadly. Second, totally laughing about telling the boys, exactly what I would have done, my youngest is a creature lover. He would have thought that was so wicked cool that mom stepped on a snake! Hilarious! I'm putting you on my Boy Blogs Roll!

N. has just one question:

Is the snake okay?

He's a snake lover.
