Ted and Chip

Yesterday I almost stepped on a scorpion while sweeping the floor,
 (come on, I don't let Mary do EVERYTHING).
We also discovered two in the pantry which I caught and put in a jar.
The girls named them Ted and Chip.
For most Arizonians, scorpions aren't that big of a deal, but for me=HUGE.

And now I make my children wear shoes everywhere they go.

Today when I was changing Oliver's super stinky diaper,
 I was really struggling to keep him still.
He wiggled around and I was on the verge of throwing up the whole time.
I saw Ted and Chip in the on the dresser, so I
grabbed the jar and gave it to him to hold while I finished the job.
He held still and lay there even after I was done.
Ted and Chip! Where have you been all my life?!
