As Bad as the Squirrels

Remember how I said the squirrels were my worst enemy, because they kept eating my tomatoes? Well if I wasn’t so in love with this little guy, he might make my worst enemy list too. You have to keep an eye on this one if he gets near the garden. He loves to eat tomatoes, he loves to pick tomatoes, and he loves to play with tomatoes. See the problem is that all of the un-ripened green tomatoes are not tomatoes in his eyes. Nope, to him we are not growing a tomato plant, but a ball plant. In his mind, all of the green ones are ripe for the picking so he can throw them around the yard.

If he does pick a red tomato, it immediately goes into his mouth- which is perfectly fine with me. It’s just that he hasn’t quite learned that there are various shades of red. In this case he picked a slightly ripened tomato.


And his face explains it all. It wasn’t quite ready to be eaten just yet.


Hmm, what to do now? Do I put it back?


I will sit and ponder my decision.


Just as bad as the squirrels.


P.S. The day that I took these photos was the day that we refer to as “sticker day.” Can you tell why? I’ll blog about that interesting day later.

P.P.S. I think my blog is in need of a reality check. This blog started out as a way to document Aaron and I’s adventures. So much has changed in the last 3 1/2 years. Our adventures are so much more than what we get around to doing on the weekends. With Ethan, every day is an adventure. I want to capture those everyday adventures.  I want Ethan to know what he was like at this age. I want to remember what Ethan was like at this age. So my goal is to blog everyday for the next month(excluding weekends) in hopes of getting myself  accustom to this new type of blogging. I can’t promise that it will be exciting, but I can promise that it will be real.

P.P.P.S.  What about Ethan’s blog? Well it is still there, but it was only supposed to be for his first year of life. I don’t want to set the expectation too high for my future children ;) I think an entire blog dedicated to each of our children's first year of life will be all that I can handle. Then they will be grafted into this blog.

P.P.P.P.S Hunt family a reunion post is on it way. I have narrowed the 750 pictures down to 161. Someday a post will make it to the blog.

Okay, I’m done. I promise. Have a great weekend. I’ll see you on Monday!
