My 2nd grader has his first science project to do - an insect collection. I sent him out with 4 ziplock bags and instructions to find 4 live bugs, bag 'em and freeze 'em. My 2nd grader comes running back with his first catch - a grasshopper. We ooh and aah over it, and he heads to the freezer. Then an ant, then a fly.
My 4 year old comes running in and says he's caught a lizard. "A live one?" I ask, rather horrified at the thought of a lizard getting loose in my bedroom.
"No, it's dead. See?" And he produces a rubber lizard.
"Oh, that's a beautiful lizard!" I placate him.
So this morning, I open the freezer for Eggo's, and...
Gotta love raising boys!
