Enjoying a hot dog dinner with his good pal Cody
This year's Camp Momanmee had a "critter" theme. If there was ever a little boy who loved all creatures great and small, it is my Little Middle! He was especially excited about seeing CritterMan and all of his unique (and icky) animals.
Legs the legless lizard
"Kubwa Mududu"--Swahili for "big bug"
This Madagascar hissing cockroach was indeed a kubwa mududu. Little Middle was thrilled when CritterMan asked him to help out with the giant bug. Me--not so much.
Little Middle was not afraid to pet this huge skink...
or this enormous python!
He asked me in the sweetest voice if I would pretty please touch the snake, too. Only a mother's love could oblige a request like that! Shudder.
After CritterMan left with his pets, we had plenty of other fun things to do.
We hunted for bugs,
jumped in the bounce house,
went for a walk in the dark with our flashlights,
and watched a late-night movie.
I had a spectacular time with my boy, and I know we will both hold on to the memories we made together for a long, long time. Hooray for being a boy mom!
