Oh what a sweet little man my Mitchell is....he loves creatures and he loves them dearly, and he grows attached very quickly. This little snail suctioned his way into Mitchie's heart immediately. He was so excited that it loved him enough that it would connect itself to him so fast. I hated to do it, but we broke the news that this little guy could not come home with us because he would never make it alive.
He hunted and searched for a new home for the little guy, and was devastated to have to leave him behind. He talked to it and kissed it, and told it how much he loved it....We did this one other time with a earthworm and he was hysterical for half an hour.
He refused to leave him. The tears were unbearably cute, and so sad. He loves deeply that one. In the end the snail did go back to the ocean unharmed.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
