I can't even begin to tell you how exciting our weekend has just been! Myles turned 7 on Friday (yes, can you believe 7 years have gone so fast?!) so, to celebrate we decided to do something a little different and throw a reptile party!
Yes I know, sounds beyond terrifying and believe me, I AM the mother who gets her son to remove spiders from the house!
In fact, ironically just yesterday morning, I picked up a towel, thought I felt a loose thread, looked down and saw a massive black house spider – threw the towel across the room and screamed bloody murder!
In that moment there was no way I'd have thought I'd be holding a tarantula 4 hours later (left), but I did!
At the beginning, I couldn't even bring myself to touch the smaller corn snakes – (check it out eating the mouse whole – below left!) but look at me by the end!
The guys that came to our house were so knowledgeable (they usually do schools and are hoping to open a reptile rescue centre).
We also saw dragons (fed them live crickets who hopped across the living room floor!) frogs, various other snakes, scorpions (yep, as scary as they sound!) as well as the tarantula!
