Photo Challenge Day 22

Fiona is a very tactile little girl. She wants to touch everything, particularly things that are creepy, crawly, furry, squishy, slimy, jumpy, lumpy, bumby, bitey and just gross (see yesterday's entry!). My tolerance for touching undesirable objects has increased significantly and I have honed my ability to spot and catch a toad from 600 yards*.

* I just googled how far 600 yards actually is and it's apparently 548 meters. So yep, my estimate was pretty accurate! ;-)

Anyway, Fiona loves to touch these interesting creatures and I love that she's not squeamish about this stuff even if it does sometimes give me the heebie jeebies, so I encourage it.

This afternoon we were at a nature center with our friends Kate and Audrey and Kate kindly fished a bunch of stinky, slimy (and mercifully empty) snail shells out of the pond for Fiona and Audrey to check out. She was really happy and excited to hold these lovely objects.

And there was totally a tiny dead fish in one of the ones we took home. Sorry for thinking the smell was you. :-)

No problem, it was entirely possible that it was me :-)

Anything in Fiona's hand turns into something just a little bit cuter.
