So meet our new friend, Jerboa Punta Raymon. Yes, because we lack pets my children resort to naming plants. SS#1 thought long and hard and chose Jerboa after the lesser known, long haired Asian jumping rodents. SS#2 was allowed middle name selection and came up with the very random Punta Raymon (which has a good Florida retirement community ring to it).
The funniest part of the evening came when it's SS #1 said "I bet back before the modern age. People actually used cactus spikes as weapons, (chuckles softly to himself. I'm sure imagining a dimwitted Cro-Magnon man wielding a cactus) but, they probably stuck themselves a lot, trying to get them out in the first place".
Meanwhile SS#2 was sitting on the floor fashioning himself, a pair of Mexican huarache sandals out of masking tape- seriously this is why i signed up to be a mom- you never stop laughing!
Yes, that is black and red not so washable marker on his arm, Which unfortunately was also used to create a lovely drawing on my studio room carpet. That part did not have me laughing.
