One day, Jordan was happily pulling out random items from the linen closet. As he stumbled across one item, he shreaked with joy. "Mom, look! It's a rattlesnake!" that caught my immediate attention. I was reassured to see that he had only found an old sock filled with rice. You know what I'm talking about. You heat the sock up slightly and put it on your aching muscles. They are great not only for that, but it looks like they entertain children as well.
So, this even happened over a month ago. I thought he might have gotten over his new friend, but they have actually grown pretty close. Jordan tucks rattlesnake into bed at night, makes me brush his teeth (and I found out one day after a fit of laughter that I was brushing the wrong end of him), and tuck him in for naps.
On the way to school, Jordan asked if rattlesnake could come with me to the store (my usual routine while Jordan attends preschool.) Of course, I was thrilled to have the company. So upon arriving at school, Jordan hopped out of his carseat and buckled rattlesnake carefully in his place. I smiled to myself while peaking back in the rearview mirror. I'm such a lucky mama.
