At bed time, mom usually takes me to my room. She will tuck me in and pet my back while talking to me. Sometimes this really helps me to go to sleep. Mom also has a huge book of fairy tales and lullabys that she sings to me. I’m not sure if it’s the stories or the sweet sing song sound of her voice but it hypnotizes me. It’s the best.
Lately, she’s been singing the Itsy Bitsy Spider song to me. You know the one. It goes something like this:
The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
And the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again
Kind of a catchy tune isn’t it? I find myself humming it too. Well, mom went outside Saturday to get the mail. When she came back in, she was mumbling something, grabbed her cell phone and went back out. This piqued my interest. What the heck was mom up to?
When she came back in, I could smell nature on her. And, I could smell the heat. Shivers, I don’t like the heat. I’ll take my air conditioned room any day. 🙂
Well, she said she went outside to take a picture of something. Of course, I had to jump on the couch with her to look at the picture. Oh THUD! I will never sing the itsy bitsy song again without this vision popping into my little head. If *that* is an itsy bitsy spider, we are ALL in trouble my friends. This thing looked like it had its own zipcode! Have you ever soon anything this huge??!!
I recognize that sound of you hitting the floor. I’m sorry. But you have to admit that it is very colorful. Mom says it’s a good spider and won’t harm you. I’m not sure about that. It looks like it can carry me off.
Well, I’m off to play. Everyone have a happy Monday!!
