Too cute! I smiled from the beginning to the end. Excellent!
I liked it! Good job!
Well written and very fun!

Although I don't like spiders, I never did learn to be scared of gardner snakes. In fact, my dad used to say, "My girls scare boys with snakes!" :-)
A delightful and humorous look at the nature of little boys and the saintly patience of a godly mother. Well crafted!
This made me smile ... and thank God for little girls. Well done!
What a fun entry!
Delightful, fun, belongs in a newsletter or magazine - great reading.
Just for the record, this mom is okay with spiders and most all bugs, BUT don't ever (NEVER EVER) bring snakes - even worms, though I know they are different - anywhere near me! We live in the country, and I have been known to make the next door neighbor come over to my house and kill a snake on my front porch. "He is not poisonous," he told me. "I don't care. I saw him, and now he must die, or I will imagine him in my house!" I enjoyed your article! Thanks, Cheri
Too much fun! I loved it. My too obvious spider phobia has, thus far, prevented my young son from bringing any of the creatures in my house. And I hope it stays that way! Shudder!
