if only I were kidding. . .

Today was a day like any other. We were headed to work/babysitter. Both kids were in their little worlds. I was driving slowly and cautiously [clears throat] down the dirt road. (My mom reads this.)


Then, Kyler saw a turtle. Before I could truly get stopped, he was out of the car and running to the turtle (or terrapin, if you prefer). He talked me into letting him take it to the babysitter to show the other kids. Then, we were to turn the turtle loose. . .

I expected the turtle to ride peacefully in the floorboard of my car. I didn't expect a wild, out-of-control rock-star turtle who would trash my car. What I got was this. . .
(Don't look at the dirty carpet!)

That would be a mountain of turtle poop. I decided (not knowing the best way to clean turtle poop up) that it might be best to let it dry, and then vacuum and scrub the mess up, lest I smear turtle poop everywhere (eewwwwww!).

Yep, that's my life. . . and this afternoon I might trade places with you. . . if anyone is interested in cleaning up turtle poop.

That's a load of crap :)
Looks like he was saving it all up just to dump it in your vehicle!
Next week you can do a WFMW post on how to remove turtle poop from the carpet ;)

yuk. But you're a good Mommy! I LOVED all the turtles my parents let me bring home (for temporary time periods) when I was a kid!!

Well, I'm sitting here with a child that just got back from having an allergic reaction to cherries and getting shots. Sure you want to trade?

Oh the joys of being a mom! I never woulda thought that turtles pooped myself... Honestly, shouldn't their excrement just evaporate like fish poop? It took me forever to figure out that geckos were pooping on our walls in Mozambique!
