Why Kids are Way Better than Pets...

I was talking to Mom on the phone about the little voice in my head that says I have more children waiting to enter chubby little bodies of my and my husband's creation.

She said I just like collecting people.

And I thought...Mom...You had seven...

Anyway, I think kids are awesome (NO, this is not one of those, SURPRISE! I am PREGNANT blogs...I may have little people waiting, but I'm thinkin' they are not ready to plummet to earth for quite a while...).

In fact, I think they are way more fun than pets, although pets do a pretty good job of being destructive toddlers (and I had many hair-ripping moments when Pepper thought pooping on the floor next to the litter box was fantastic, and only shook things up by pooping on the rim of said litter box, and I spent many, many, many frantically scrubbing moments wondering why I had ever gotten a cat when I had a baby that could do the same thing, except I wouldn't have to step on little rocks every time I walked into the bathroom...).

I was cleaning up the house this afternoon, and was trying to do so quickly. Josh and Eva were outside "picking gold" with Grand Mommy, and I had Lily and Eden to entertain. I was in the kitchen, and I got a little nervous since I couldn't hear either of them, and I was imagining that Eden had choked to death on a Candy Land character, and/or Lily was sitting on her while this was happening, and wouldn't think to tell me that my baby was turning Louis-Bloo otter pop colored.

I walked in to the playroom, and this is what I found:
Now, if a dog had done this, they would have ended up outside, with a severe reprimand...

But she's just so darn cute! How can you get mad at this face??
In other news, Lily scalped Eva's Unicorn...
Must be her Algonquin blood coming out, fueled by her fiery Lily-Rage. Is that PC? Maybe not...and I don't think the Algonquin's scalped people. But still...

See, if your cat pulled the hair off your daughter's small, fuzz encrusted plastic unicorn, you would be mad, right? But it's cute if Lily does it.

"But my cat will chase a laser pointer!" you may counter, and then I will have to show you this:

See? Best of both worlds! Lily will destroy Eva's toys, chase a laser pointer, AND she talks. Awesome...

And what about tree frogs, you ask? Yes... I know...Tree frogs are cute, but so is this:
Complete with tree frog legs.

Kids are so much better than pets.

Just sayin'...
