Meet Curly. He is our newest friend from Itty Bitty Toys.
He is incredibly cute! Snakes are one critter that I have a high aversion to. Most of the time I try to be pretty macho about things, but not so with snakes. I think it all started when my 5th grade teacher had us watch as he fed the class snake a mouse. I just can’t stop seeing that big eared darling of a mouse wander the cage innocently. I’m sure you know the ending of that story. I almost tear up just thinking about it. But Curly doesn’t eat mice. In fact, he eats mosquitoes. He is pure sweetness through and through.
While Elias and I were knitting him last night, I started thinking that I might try and only give Elias homemade gifts. I think that would be very cool. And it would teach him something about the meaning of gifts.
