Paris' New Hobby...

For some reason we have all these little beetle's that are all over outide and have recently been making it into our entry way. I, like most people, stomp on them the minute I see them...but recently I learned that I've been "killing" Paris' pets!

What? You can imagine my surprise when I found out that Paris has been collecting these things...naming them...and keeping them in random objects INSIDE the house!

I suggested that we keep them maybe outside...but she thought it would be too hot for them inside their container (yeah probably right), so I suggested they just go live in their home...OUTSIDE...in the DIRT! No, No, she couldn't do that because she wanted to keep them! Oh boy...so we compromised and I picked out a container she could use...(one that could be thrown away when they all die)and then I personally sealed the top with Press N Seal wrap...so they couldn't escape.

She collected 5 over the last few days...Zoe, Michael, Kirby, Logan, and Cheese. Yeah...she named them! Anyway...she came to me this morning and told me that 3 escaped. Kirby, Zoe, and Cheese...how she knows which ones...is a mystery to me! When I asked her how she said she accidentally dropped it...it's the WHERE that grossed me out! She said she dropped them on her bed this morning! Come on!!!

So before we went on an all out dash to find them...we snapped a picture of the lonely Michael and Logan. Paris looks a little too happy to be missing 3 of her new "pets"! Ugh...

Status update...We found Zoe on the carpet and Kirby crawling next to the wall...but sadly Cheese was "stomped on by Seattle" and didn't survive!

Let's hope she finds a new "hobby" soon!!

Wow, Summer. I think you're a lot more accepting of her hobby than I would have been! You're a good mom; Paris looks so happy in that picture.

Seattle looks very intimidating in this picture, like she's just waiting to stomp on more pets!

I love that she is collecting bugs! At least it's not spiders or crickets :) Your new bed set looks pretty sweet. It's about time you guys upgrade to a king. And congratulations on 11 years. I loved the wedding pictures and all the pictures of your kids. You have a beautiful family. We will miss all of you.

That's awesome ... and gross! And I love Seattle's face in that picture. She really is up to something!

Oh my gosh! I'm shocked too that she would want to collect bugs! That is hilarious though that she is naming them. Do you think she'd be ok with keeping them in the garage? or is that as hot as outside in Phoenix?!

The garage IS a little better...maybe we CAN compromise after all!
