Dried herbs make me unreasonably happy. Oh the plans I have for you...teas, decoctions, infusions, extracts, glycerides...yay!

Nye thinks "YUM!!" and shoves as much as he can in his mouth before I suck it up with the vacuum (Yes, I did consider sucking it out of his mouth).
Later he wanted a turn, but had to promise he wouldn't eat anything before getting vacuum privileges.
"Dear God, Please let the kingdom spiders get me."
Thankfully we have a wise, loving and understanding God who does not always choose to say yes to our prayers.
(As background, Nye usually drops the negative in a request. And his nightly prayers always hit three points. Let Kingdom of God come soon, Thank you for ________, and let the spiders get me. (Read: Don't let the spiders get me...the boy has a phobia of spiders in his bed!) Lizzy used to get scared that God didn't understand, so she always follows up with "And God, don't let the spiders get Nye. Thank you. Amen." She's beefing up her intercessory prayer skills. :)
Now back to the monstrous spider. Try to end the stalemate by calling your neighbor girl over to get you a shoe (note to self: wearing shoes would provide me with better weapon options). Never get closer than two feet to the spider. The wasp spray may give him mutant jumping powers.
If a black widow spider bites a person, do not panic! No one in the United States has died from a black widow spider bite in over 10 years. Very often the black widow will not inject any venom into the bite and no serious symptoms develop. Wash the wound well with soap and water to help prevent infection.

"Now you want to make sure that I don't get three in a row. Good, now I have to put my piece where you won't get three in a.....wait, did you just beat me? Wait, what?!"
"I've got to take a picture to show dad later. Smile! Oh come on, what are you implying? I'm not that bad."
Nye: "Mamma, mamma, look! I a fireman!"
Me, pulling out my camera: "Nye! This is in no way acceptable (click), so as soon as I take your picture (click), I want you to clean that soup out of your hair (click), and never do this again (click). Do you understand?"
