Last night was the first night that my kids had their new hermit crabs in their rooms. Apparently the clawed creatures are a little noisy at night.
"Mama," my daughter said. "Those crabs are creepy!"
"Why is that?" I asked.
"They make funny sounds at night. I think they're trying to dig their way out of the container."
"I see. So maybe we should move them at night so they don't keep you up?"
My daughter nodded. "I'll put them in the loft with the frog."
So tonight I'll look forward to listening to a chorus of crabs and a frog as I try to watch TV. Should be interesting.
