What Pets Are Off Limits for Your Family?

I went to a birthday party last weekend and the family happens to also run Rainforest Encounters where they visit schools and various areas around the state educating people and children about the awesome animals like tortoises, bearded dragons, snakes and spiders plus more I am sure I didn’t mention them all.

Every time I run into them at a school or library event I want to sneak off with their bearded dragon, this is my favorite type of pet to have and after researching found out it’s great for family with small kids. These are docile creatures and just fun to have around. The only thing I have to say is buy an adult because babies don’t always live long and they are expensive as heck to feed. I know from experience, ours just wasn’t going to last and we had to re-home him long ago.

While at this birthday party and the kids had guinea pigs outside, a dog hooked up and they were looking all happy mingling with the animals, I got to thinking … what types of pets are off limits to me? Like, what type of pets would I absolutely never allow my children to have in my house?

For me it’s spiders, and constrictor snakes, that’s it I think. Maybe no hamsters because I had bad luck with cats eating mine back in my childhood years plus you can’t hold them so if you can’t hold them why are they called a pet?

Pets I do want someday? A Golden Retriever, a Black Pug, an adult bearded dragon, a Maine Coon cat preferably an orange colored one, and now I have some weird love of corn snakes ever since holding one at the library event over the Summer.

What pets are off limits to you? What pets do you want or have around your home?

Flying For Second Time: Off to NYC

I am off to NYC for an overnight trip and it’s pretty excited, nerve wracking and more for me. You see this is only my second time flying. The first time I flew with @mommycosm and she did all the airplane flight booking and bag check ins on the way before we left for Type-A Parent Conference and we met at the airport, so it was pretty simply I just followed her lead.

This time I booked my own flight and have done it all alone and probably will fly alone unless by chance I end up on the same flight @mommycosm is on for this trip to NYC. I just hope I arrive at airport ready and since it’s one overnight I am just bringing a carry on bag, hopefully I can pack that bag correctly without getting airport security all alarmed over little old me.

Off I go and so far I know I get to see @mommycosm, @angengland, @resourcefulmom, @blueviolet and @mommadjane … very excited to meet up with woman I met at Type-A and my best friend MommaDJane who I have known for gosh four or five years now!
