I DON'T like spiders.  Blech!
Cimemazoo (a wonderful animal organization) visited our school yesterday as part of the primary rainforest theme week, and something told me that it was time to stretch myself.  And so I did!
Two tarantulas crawling on me - do you think that's enough of a stretch?
It wasn't too bad, actually, as the man in charge of all the creepy crawlies was next to me, assuring me that they were very "gentle" spiders.  Have you ever thought of spiders as gentle?  I hadn't.  However, the next step was to actually hold one in my hand.  
It was surprisingly sweet!  
It was furry, kind of like a little pet, but with extra legs.  And cute little feet.  It walked softly on my hand, and suddenly I could see why people like them.
Kind of.
Just don't get me one for Mother's Day, Boys!

Egads! Now I have definitive proof that you are crazier than me. Next time - the snakes! :-)

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to you....as we come to the end of ours. Wishing you every blessing and joy, and hoping that it's another goodie this year. You so deserve it! xo
