So, speaking of squirrels … Isaac and I have had quite the obsession with them lately. The recent warm weather in Maine (yesterday was 45 degrees) has caused many a critter to venture out of their warm nests to scout for food. And the best location to watch these funny little guys is at my neighbor’s side porch … where she keeps about five loaded bird feeders.
Before we left the feeders to make our way back home, I thought I would be a “cool” Mom and try to pat one of the squirrels to show Isaac another one of my many talents. To my delight, I was able to tickle the haunches of one very preoccupied squirrel. However, Isaac wasn’t so sure how cool that was … and it only made him quite concerned about whether or not squirrels bite (something he never mentioned before). Oh, the many unintentional ways in which we traumatize our children.
Anyway, we are thankful for squirrels and for the neighbor’s who attract them.
May you enjoy your squirrels as well …
