Our new addition


Not that I really needed to sell the girls on our new worm bin, but Hannah's excitement doubled (if that's even possible since she was already begging to open the package of worms) when I announced the worms as our new pets.  She can't wait to tell Rachel that mom let them have pets!  Elise, on the other hand, is pretty sure we should eat them.  This surely stems from the wide variety of foods that we feed our kids, including octopus and baby anchovies.  When I told her that we needed to go buy worms, she responded with "Yummy worms?  We eat worms?"  I thought I had succeeded in explaining that we would not be eating the worms when we met up with Chris.  Her first question for Chris was "Daddy eat yummy worms?"  We then came home to a delicious dinner of meatloaf and potatoes.  When I served them up and called everyone for dinner, Elise ran to the kitchen, asking if we were eating worms for dinner.  This was not a "Eww" questions, but an excited request for those much anticipated worms.  I guess we will keep an eye on the worm bin and make sure Elise doesn't break into it to eat all of our new pets.  It would be a shame. And down right disgusting. (No offense to all of you worm eaters out there, right?)
