An evening of bad parenting...

| No Comments

Poor Tess suffered a conk to the head this afternoon when I plopped her on the bed after riding her around on my shoulders. Later, she was cleaning up her room and somehow her little fingers got underneath my knee as I was shifting weight. While I was out running errands, Tam was working out with some hand weights and bopped Tess in the face. When I returned Tess wanted me to tell her about Pegasus before bedtime; so, I dutifully busted out the Bullfinch's and proceeded to scare the bejeezus out of her with Medusa. So, I put Tess in the big bed so she can watch some TV to calm her down and in walks Tam in a green beauty mask to tell me that something's moving in the bathroom. Dear Lord!

There's a cabinet behind the tub that we keep closed because it has an opening to the crawl space under the house. I grabbed a flashlight and opened the door. Inside was an opossum huddled against the cold. $350.00 to have him removed tonight; so, we'll be hosting the little critter and check on him in the morning. I'm fairly confident he's the same guy that walks around the front yard at night. If I was certain that I wouldn't be bitten or have him play dead and stink up the house, I'd invite him all the way in and maybe show him to Tess. Or, not.
