You could say that I’m a bit behind some of my peers in that I don’t have three, two or even one child to call my own at the ripe age of twenty six.
Earlier this month, I decided that it was time to catch up. My housemate Taylor channeled his boyscout skills into blowing up a kiddie pool, filling it with water and rounding up close to 50 frogs for a giant amphibian orgy.
I steered clear of the backyard for the event itself, but was amazed to find a tremendous amount of frog eggs when I visited the pool the next morning. Within days, the fertilized eggs hatched into thousands of tadpoles who I adopted as my progeny.
I did a bit of research to learn how to care for the little fishies and am playing mama to these baby frogs each day. It’s incredible to see birth and nature at work in our backyard.
Bonus: Who would have thought that – at 26 – I would be a matriarch to thousands of little lives? Ma, Dad… grandkids!!! :-D
