They would have a zoo....

At any given moment my house is full of different animals. We have had our share of bugs, snakes, butterflies, fish, gerbils, hamsters, toads, cats and even a lizard of some sort.

My kids collect anything that moves. They have even contemplated charging for their "petting zoo". They catch living creatures (or even dead ones for that matter) where ever we go and since we love the outdoors this can become a problem.

I am usually a good sport and even encourage them. For instance, today when they brought in 14 wholly bear caterpillars. We googled how to care for them, what kind of creature they would become and how to tell if it was a male or female caterpillar.

There comes a point when I have to draw the line. Have you ever seen a mole up close? The only thing I knew about moles consisted of watching them make the ground "move", being frustrated with them messing up my garden and making the yard soft and which makes it difficult for Taylor to drive her wheelchair. Until I saw one up close and personal.

THEY ARE GROSS. I am not a squirmy person. When the kids brought snakes in, I was fine. Bugs....great.

My line is drawn at MOLES!

I don't even know why this thing got to me. In the pictures he actually looks kind of cute but I assure you, he was gross.

Okay...I'm with you. This is gross LOL. I am terrifed of snakes and mice. I have tried not to be...but I am. And there is nothing I can do about it.

You are incredible to allow those things and even in a jar in your house. My hat is off to you LOL.
