Home Invasion

The cute little Gecko
Now trapped in a bowl!!

SO the other morning I was cleaning up the kitchen and went to throw something in the garbage. And I looked down and saw something move. I said what was that? I looked down and it was a lizard. It moved a little ,and I knew I had to act quickly so it wouldn't run away. I ran to the cupboard and got a glass. I came back and tried to catch it. It then ran fast under the piano.My heart it racing so fast at this point. So Megan And I got on the floor trying to see if we could see it. We could. So I called Ben at work. The conversation went like this. Um what are you doing? Working... oh well ,Megan and I are trying to catch a lizard. Really ,you mean a gecko. Yeah sure ,whatever it is will you come get it? I don't want to loose it somewhere in the house then it would crawl on Lanie or the kids. I will see if I can get away. 10 minutes later.... Called Ben again, are you going to come and get it? Megan the whole time is on her tummy staring at this gecko under the piano. She would yell, mom it moved his head!! When Ben got home he got the broom and wept it out and trapped it with a Tupperware bowl.( I could of done that, but I was too scared!) We then got it outside thank goodness. So Am I the only one who would of called their husband to come and get it? What would you do if a gecko got in your house?


When it was all over, I said oh we should of kept it as a pet. It was kind of cute!

How funny! We have tons of lizards here and I always wonder what I would do if one ran in the house. I think you know me well enough to know what I would have done.....

LOL! I can't believe you called Ben to get a gecko. I understand if it was a rat or a mouse or something like that. I think Lee would have laughed at me and hung up the phone thinking I was kidding or something. You are lucky your husband can do that for you.

Aubree leaves out bread crumbs and dead flies to trick the lizards into our house. I also have been known to make up stories to impress people.

I would try to be the cool mom and act like I was trying to catch the gecko--Darn, it is just too fast for me! I wish I could have caught it, but it accidentally went outside. Too bad we will never see it again. Do you guys want to watch Backyardigans now?
