Look, Mom!

Normally I'm a very laid-back mom who doesn't get shook up over much. Normally.

Wanna see what turned me into a shrieking shrew? (Seriously. Ask my kids.)

Can you see what my son brought home?
Adorable? yes.
But it was enough to push me over the edge.

I mean, this isn't a critter that you can just release, pat on the head, and say "Run along, now" to. But that's about what this son of mine thought--without the pats of course.

I asked him if he was Superman.
Loud enough for the whole county to hear.

*eye roll*

So tell me, what's the best your kids have brought home?
Come on, please tell me. I'm still trying to see the funny side of this.


  1. That is so cute. The good news is that the cute furry one doesn't have his stinky sack yet- he's too small. I'd keep an eye on the big one. He looks like trouble ;)

    Oh my goodness, this is just
    too funny! I can imagine
    your "delight" at seeing this.


  3. Oh, no, no, no...you can't just leave us hanging like that - you gotta tell us HOW he released the little darling!!! Was it a happy ending? What a very brave son you have :) Blessings to you!

  4. Oh, Peej, can't top that one! ROFL

    I heard that when raised in captivity skunks actually make great pets and are more loyal than dogs.

  6. I LOVE you, Patty Wysong. Ooooohh boy. What a day you've had.

    I love it!


  8. Oh my goodness!!! Unbelievable!! Do the little ones stink?

  9. Hahaha...We once opened the slider to call our dog inside and he was barking his head off at a skunk, which was basically pinned up against the garage. Not a lovely sight. Fortunately (and totally amazingly), the skunk didn't spray. My Sheltie must not have been intimidating enough. LoL

    You definitely had a good reason to freak out over this. Yikes!

  10. We had a skunk in the backyard once. I opened the door to let the dog in, saw the skunk turning around & lifting his tail about six feet from ME, told the dog, "Sorry, you're on your own for a bit!" and slammed the door. Then sent The Management to the store (at 11:30 p.m) for 5 huge cans of tomato juice, a pint of Haagen-Daz French vanilla & a big box of Hostess little white donuts. The juice was for him to bathe the dog in (in 50-degree weather--OUTSIDE). The ice cream was his reward after doing so. The donuts were for me, while I waited. :>) Daughter never brought home anything, but cat brought a baby cottonmouth snake one time.

  11. My oldest son (almost 19) is a taxidermist. He has brought home more atrocious objects than I can count. At present, a bear paw is laying in my yard, ready to be declawed by my youngest.
    But the worst, by far, was the roadkill coyote. DS thought he'd tanned the hide sufficiently... it took a week or two before I traced the source of the odor to the coyote "throw" on his bed.
    Shortly afterward, he moved into the camper in our yard, with my blessing. : )

  12. You woulda had to pull me out on a stretcher. My. goodness. I can't top this one.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
