Scott and I are not afraid of snakes.
Here we are as a tourist attraction at the Bangkok Snake Farm. People couldn't believe that we'd actually put a snake on our necks and asked to take our photo. Wimps!
Emily was not afraid of snakes either - as a baby.
One she hit about two she wouldn't even touch this fake one she used to sleep with! Snakes were "TOO SCARY!" I was a bit concerned that she would grow up to be a person who didn't want to touch a snake but would instead take photos of other people touching them. What kind of photo album does that make?
Today we had a field trip with Molly's preschool to see The Critter Lady. Oh, she was fun. She brought a skink, two different lizards, an African hedgehog a tortoise and an orange snake named Pumpkin. Emily didn't want to touch any of these creatures . . .
until Molly willingly put a snake around her neck.
Then Emily decided to join in on the fun too. I was so proud of Emily and Molly! They were very brave. Heidi, on the other hand, was not quite so brave. Luckily she was fashionable. Hopefully she will be brave someday soon.
