Monster

So I happened to look out the boys' bedroom window this afternoon and saw one of our "extra kids" standing barefoot in the street looking at what appeared to be a giant frog. (Random "extra kids" from the neighborhood seem to flock to my house probably because we have so many- what's one more? And I also feed them snacks and have lots of popsicles because I am very mothering.)

I called out to him and asked what he was doing. I was partly worried about him standing in the street and partly scared he was going to torture the frog. Are you going to hurt that frog? He was just trying to get it out of the street. So I told him I'd be right down.

I ran across the street and saw how really big that bull frog was and was all hang on- I gotta get my camera! And proceeded to call everyone else out of the house to come see.

Monster Frog:

I took a video of it after we got him to hop on the grass. You can hear Ivy's and Carter's infectious giggles. And my "extra kid" imitating the frog's whiny croak grumble he'd make with every hop. If you listen closely enough, you'll actually hear the frog. He made us late for a birthday party. But it was worth it.

  14. Wow, Steph! That is one big frog. I showed my kids the video and they loved it. They were very disappointed that they weren't living in that area anymore so they could see that big frog. What a cool experience for your kids.

  19. That is a huge frog! I bet they get really loud at night. Carter and Ivy's giggles are truly infectious. Made my day to hear those happy sounds.

  20. that think is quite large. i can not believe you go that close to it. then again, you ARE the mom of mostly boys. ;)

    by the way - you just remind me of my family...because everyone flocked to my house for my mom's homemade popsicles. we were the "community" house because there were eight of us (7 boys and me). makes total sense that you have "extra" kids and one day, you'll be called, "mrs. p" and that's adorable.

  22. There are so many things about this that I love! From the giggles, to the "touch his bum", to the "do we have all the kids?". I LOL'ed through the whole thing! So much fun on a Saturday afternoon!!

  23. How funny..love this so much. I could not believe the size. The giggles were precious. Hooray for Steph, saving the frog.

  24. We currently have a large (probably equal in size to yours...) bullfrog in an aquarium for the weekend...JUST so we can take it to the school to show the classrooms. It is then returning to the yard where it conveniently eats ALL of our mosquitos! :) That little buddy is HUGE!

  27. How funny. We loved this. Those laughs are great. Is Jeff your extra kid? :) He's making lots of funny noises at the beginning.

  28. That IS a huge frog! Crazy!

    I love that your house is the "popular" house. It must be a fun and warm and welcoming place to be.

    This may be intensely personal question and, if so, please disregard. But...do you want to have any more kids?

  29. I'm glad I'm not the only one that says... do we have all the kids? lol best line ever. :)
