Too Much Nature

If you're an arachnophobe, then don't read any further...

This was our 'pet' Writing Spider... until I soaked her with SureShot from a safe distance away incase she was also a jumping spider. The wivestale says that if you see your name in a Writing Spider's web, then you will die soon....so in true survival-of-the-fittest nature, I eliminated the possibility of testing the wivestale.

Then

During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
