♥ Mystery of the Missing Turtle Head — 21 Comments

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I’m so glad everything worked out in the end. I’m sure the turtle is especially happy to still have his head. Your boys are adorable! And so is Cotton, despite the biting-turtle-heads tendencies! 🙂

  2. Thank you for such a sweet comment you left me! Believe it or not I have 4 boys too and one girl…so I understand! I have found though that my boys enjoy seeing and helping me with all my projects and are proud of their mom and all her Please stop by again anytime!

    Hugs to you,

  3. Good thing you thought about turtles pulling their heads in. I wasn’t thinking about that until you said it.

    Cute boys, great memories, pretty dog too.

    More later,

  4. What a “heartwarming” story — first I am glad it wasn’t the dog after all. Then I’m glad the turtle is back where it belongs.

    You really are one brilliant mom!

    I loved this post, thanks for sharing.

  5. Oh I’m so glad everything worked out and you were able to cheer the kids up! Being a mom of boys I know the whole wild animal thing. My boys think anything that is found around or near our house is automatically their new pet! We once had a mole in a fish tank full of mud! I could go on and on…ha ha! Thanks for stopping by my site!

  6. I have an animal lover and I cannot even begin to tell you how many animal funerals we have had over the past five years. We even have our own animal graveyard on our property.

  7. So glad that it ended well. It’s hard to see them have their excitement for the freedom and life of a small creature dashed. And poor Cooper! Looks like he got it good for something he didn’t do.

  8. Bless their hearts! I can imagine how thrilled they were to find the turtle’s head was still intact.

    When I was a about 8 years old, I saw a baby bird hop past the neighbors German Shepherd. I looked away for a split second and heard the distint CHOMP! of a that dog’s mouth snapping shut. I turned around and to my horror, the little bird was gone. Remembering seeing Granny rescue Tweety a zillion times in cartoons, I ran over to the dog and gave him a sharp WHACK with the side of my hand, just where his neck met his shoulders. Lo and behold, he gave a hacking cough and the little bird fell to the ground, still alive! That was one of the happiest days of my life I tell you! I took him home and played mama bird for a few days and then let him go.

  9. It’s like a fairy tale, happy ending and all, tee hee! I’ll bet you are one busy Mama with 5 boys, whew wee…sooo fun I’ll bet though! I have 3 girls and they keep me on my toes. Love the turtle story, so glad they saved him from the ‘scary monster’ 😉

  10. Yea for the turtle!

    Love its tenacity to survive the jaws of death.

    I also loved your post about your grandmother. I have a granddaughter, and I want to help instill character in her.

    Not just spoil her rotten.

    Have a great weekend!

    Sweet dreams.

    p.s. Have you moved yet?

  11. Holy Cow, you scared me! So glad turtle is ok! Seriously, 5 boys…..what a fun household you have!

    Lisa 🙂
