T is For Toad

Ivy went looking for bugs under logs and found this toad.

Note: My daughter's not jaundiced, she just likes to be a dandelion fairy!

Shortly after the big discovery Ivy ran for the house to show Clara. When I walked in Ivy was headed up the stairs, toad in hand.

Me: “Whatcha’ doin’ Ivy?”

Ivy: “I’m going to play with my toad!!!”

By the time my camera and I wandered upstairs to see what was happening the toad had peed on Ivy and the carpet.

This didn’t surprise me because not only is pee a toads M.O., the play room is the only room left in the house with carpet. Murphy’s law strikes again!

After the toad met a few of the locals…… and was completely unimpressed… …Ivy brought him back to his little toady hideout.

Toads, cameras and kids it makes for a hoppin’ good time!

      We may have a house full of girls but I’m doing my best to raise them without too many girly screams about bugs, toads and the like. Just don’t surprise me with a rat… that brings out the scream in me whether I like it or not!

    Who knew a toad would be so photogenic. Course, Ivy’s cuteness makes even the toad look pretty good.

    Yup, it was probably only in the low 50’s the day Ivy found it. It was buried in the dirt under a log and was super chilly and not at all hippity hopping around. Not long after it really warmed up and started hopping everywhere I suggested that maybe we take it backout side before it got lost in the house. Ivy then went and found it back under it’s log two days later she was very excited to see it again!
