Mr. Turtle and Matthew Meet
Yesterday we were out in the yard when hubby spotted a tiny turtle just hanging out on our deck. I'm excited to see our new visitor and immediately set up a little make-shift pond for him out by the palm trees and rocks. Mr. Turtle is not interested and scampers off. All I can think is that I hope Mr. Turtle will stick around for Matthew to see him. Now, for the most part, I'm an animal lover, not that I want to go around catching lizards and frogs, but I can deal with just about any little creature. I'm definitely a let's give them a little pet...hubby on the other hand finds no pleasure in being one with nature. As far as hubby is concerned they have their space and we have ours no need to collide.
Later in the evening, Mr. Turtle is still hanging out on our deck. Matthew is definitely like his Mommy, he's all about checking out the little creatures. I love that he doesn't have fear and that he is interested in this little bitty thing in Mommy's hand. One day soon I know Matthew will be asking for a pet, just remember to ask Mommy.
