Leading up to Christmas, one of the things my older daughter wanted was a tarantula. You know...a spider, to be her pet...something she could keep in her room.
Well, my wife and I had already kind of worked out what we had planned to get for her, and a tarantula was NOT on the list. Instead, we made a deal. If she completed her responsibilities to the other animals(cats and chickens) satisfactorily for the month of January, without needing to be reminded, we would help her out with getting a spider.
Of course, my daughter had a kick-ass month of January...and after stalling last weekend because of the Superbowl, the time finally came to pay up.
Meet the newest member of the household.
Chickens outside...cats, a snake, and a spider inside. Quite the menagerie we are building around here.
Might be time for me to move out.
