Did you know that I am terrified of snakes? I think that they are beautiful creatures, when they are on TV or behind glass. This past week we had a Reptile Expo come to town. I did what any good mom would do...had a mild panic attack at the entrance and went in. The most amazing thing happened. I actually fell in love with some of the creatures. I loved the lizards, bearded dragons and turtles. I especially fell in love with a fire beaded dragon. It had the most beautiful red coloring. By the end of the 2 days I had been convinced that I need to get a snake for the house. One vendor actually had me holding a snake at the end of second day. My kids were so proud of me. Now we have a wish list of pets...snakes, spiders, and bearded dragons.
