Love/Hate Relationships

I formed a new one. I promised my kids a hermit crab for class if they could earn 100 "good behavior" points. They earned it, and I bought the dumb thing. I hate it... but I can't stop checking on it, misting it, making sure it has fresh fruits and veggies, and fresh dried shrimp, which is exactly why I also hate the stupid thing. 

Day 5: January 6, 2012

Here is today's picture... a picture of my little friend at home, after a bath. Yes, you read that correct. You have to give hermit crabs a bath - so says the paperwork.

  1. Hahaha! Thanks for the laugh, Erin. Great tip for the future...don't make any incentive deals involving hermit crabs with my kids. I'd HATE to have to look after one of those in my classroom. Fish, maybe. Hermit crab...uck!

    P.S. Is there such a thing as hermit crab bubble bath? Is it fishy? ;)
