  1. You are crazy, ZM! I remember doing crazy things like that when I ONLY had dogs! 🙂

    Okay… I said YES this weekend too. My kids decided to make their room into a giant spider web. They took lots and lots of twine and booby trapped the whole room!!!! And yes, at first, I felt myself tensing up but then I had to share with them that I did the um, exact same thing when I was 7. Except I added tin foil balls to the mix.

    I have to appreciate the fact that they designed the whole thing so they could sit in the middle of the room and tug on a string and open the door… and it isn’t a direct line either… it goes throught the closet door handle and the watering can spout first!

    My dog went in there today and got trapped!

  2. that is EXACTLY what i’m talking about. kids are the coolest. we used to be that cool (creative…) didn’t we?!?! hehehe. thanks for the story ria. smiles.
