That is the sort of things Tinky Bugs do – “Mom, I’m a Grouper….that is a type of fish”. I’m really not surprised anymore with the things she comes up with – one time she had a pet frog – in a glass with a popsicle stick in it….said frog with a green battery….she carried it around for 3 days. She now catches real frogs – ants, and other bugs…..these critters are in my home at any given time.
One Sunday morning she took one of her pet frogs to church – she had it wrapped in tissue paper………she decided to give the little froggy a bath before church, so he could be clean of course. I noticed in the nursery (I had duty that Sunday) the frog wasn’t moving – I knew he had passed, but I didn’t want to tell her. She said “Look mom my frog can do ballet”. I still didn’t want to tell her…..then I gave in. “Sweetie, I think your little froggy has passed on. She informed me that she knew……come to find out, sigh what she ‘washed’ Mr. Frog in was hand sanitizer. Poor guy – I take very much caution in what she ‘washes’ her frogs in now. She really thought she was doing good. I now tell her we do not keep the froggies in the house, they need to go back outside.
Our Little Tink, keeps us on our toes – we never know what is going to happen.
