I Screamed Like a Little Girl

I love Spring time, everything is coming to life the kids can play outside plus it's not hot yet. Today was one of those days, Kaitlen and Payten had been outside most of the morning (Kaitlen had half day) I was folding my laundry on the couch and watching my favorite talk show 'Today with Kathy Lee and Hoda' When I heard the girls come inside, Payten came straight to me I gave her a hug and then kissed her cheek. Then she showed me what she found outside. I screamed so loud and got so freaked out that she started to cry all the while the poor little thing she was holding was slowly dieing because she was smashing it to death. Refusing to touch it Kaitlen brings me a kitchen towel to lay it on, by this time it's already dead. I felt so dumb for reacting so childish over her little caterpillar warm (I think that's what it is)I'm so surprised that she even picked it up and played with it, poor little girl was so excited to show her mommy what she had found and I screamed at her. Kaitlen laughed the entire time she had tears rolling down her cheeks.

Rest in Peace little warm thing.

LOL No it's not a little "warm' thing anymore it's dead and getting colder by the second. It's a WORM Jessica...LOL Your so funny. I can just see Kaitlen laughing I love it when she gets tickled like that! Did you bury it?

No I didn't bury it, I just put him in the trash can. I was concerned with Payten's hand she had it's 'juices' all over her hand so I wanted to get her cleaned up. The worst part is Payten had no idea why I was screaming at her I hurt her feelings. I just don't like worms or anything else that can wiggle. You would think that being 28 I would be over it.

LOL yea worm juice would be a little sick! Poor thing her heart is so tender I can just see her thinking mommy was VERY angry with her and puckering up and balling. What a doll.
