Proud Parents Once Again

Yes-- Today was the day, and NO- Monty II is NOT a dud- Woo Hoo!

I was working on the never-ending laundry adventure in the basement when my quiet, peaceful, pre-dawn hours were interrupted with 'JENNNN--- COME HERE NOW!!!' I have to admit it was pretty fascinating~I can't remember Mark being this exciting with the birth of our children :)! Check him out with video camera on hand~ Sure put the 'whammies' on my well-planned day of school- but what could be better than real-life birth? God's handiwork is truly amazing- The event took only an hour- and the kid's pre-dawn awaking left them STARVING for breakfast -hmmm..... sure are a lot of those little critters... I wonder...-- JUST KIDDING! Mark's parting words were -"hey honey could you read up on these and see when to feed them their fruit flies?" And why don't I want a puppy?? :) Love you Mark! I did feed them some flies because 'if not fed immediately, they will turn cannibalistic'--- niiiccce (so that's what happens to my children in the morning-- I just don't feed them soon enough upon waking.) Life truly is never dull here :)

All praying mantids (mom had to become educated on the plural form of praying mantis) are apparently sleeping now, and I'm sure will make quite an interesting day. Gotta love real-life homeschool adventures!

CONGRATS!!

How many are in there? I just thought it was one? If you need a place to let some of them go I know where they can live on a few acres.

Good luck with your new pets.

I'm with Carrie in that I thought it was just one - do you have names yet? How long do you keep them before you can let them go? Here's to hoping no little one decides to let them "be free" in the house....

How did the first feeding go?

Good luck to all - tell PapPap and Markie you definitely need to get started on that addition now....
