Amelia has weird interests. She's into whirlpools, bugs, anything 'scary', and princesses. (One of these things just doesn't belong) Today she asked me, very sweetly, if she could please go hold a snake. I told her that she could hold something from the yard instead... hoping for a potato bug... but she found snails. I couldn't go back on my word, so she held them, squished them, snuggled them, etc. And then there's nice, clean Jane.
