What Lingers Under Rocks

Me First threw up a couple of times last night, but now they both seem to be starting to feel better, as evidenced by the number of toys they’ve strewn about and the number of times they’ve asked for snacks. We got out the Aquabeads this morning. Sister made nail polish; Brother made a monster. I picked up at least 963 beads off the floor. So they are playing and fighting and well on the way back to normal, knock on wood.

I took them outside after lunch, just to get some air and sunshine. Brother promptly kicked over a rock. Apparently this is an impulse boys can’t resist. With the rock dislodged from the damp ground, hundreds of thousands of creepy crawlies emerged, bewildered, into the sunlight. There were at least ten big, fat crickets amongst the roly-polies and (ick) cockroaches.

All in all it was a pretty exhausting encounter.

    That would have grossed me out. Nice writing (-:
