You were a brave toddler, Vaygirl. :) Or a really, really curious one. I just have a vivid memory of walking into our garden while sucking on a pixie stick and a snake popped out from under the pumpkin plant. My pixie stick went flying one way and I went running the other. Boy, I sure was mad I lost my pixie stick. I think I was maybe 5 or 6 at the time. Never liked snakes much after that.

The loss of a pixie stick can be devastating. My husband lost a whole bottle of bubbles, the only bubbles his parents ever bought him (don't even get me started there), because he had to run from a dragon fly. His Mother had told him they sew your mouth shut. So much dysfunction in that house.

I wasn't afraid of much as a kid. I so wish I could find my way back to that mindset.

Platyfishlover, I'm glad you stepped in to help the kid getting bullied. Good for you! I remember being bullied and wishing there was someone who would help me. You probably made a big difference for that kid. :)

Vaygirl, I've never heard of dragonflies sewing mouths shut. Is that an old wive's tale or just a peculiarity of your husband's mom? And I agree, I wish I could be fearless again too. *now has craving for pixie sticks*

:) It takes courage to do the right thing, especially in school. *high five*

Nat: That snake is really quite pretty. So if I get a snake and my mom kicks me out, can I live with you?
