The turtle saga continues. My son and another neighborhood boy were in the woods behind our house this evening. Guess what they found? An adult box turtle. We're guessing it's the mama box turtle.
My daughter came running in the house screaming, "Get the baby! The mommy's here!"
"What?" I said, completely confused.
Then she showed me the big find.
"All right. That thing needs to go hibernate," I said.
"But can't it see its baby?"
"Fine. Then put it right back where you found it."
Baby turtle and mama turtle got introduced. The baby was mildly interested. The mama didn't care. My daughter was thrilled.
"Oh, they love each other!"
