First time he's found a toad

After about an hour of running around with a toad in his hands I let my son eat a snack pack of mini oreos without washing his hands.

The little guy actually hopped away unscathed

Today ended up being an accidental no spend day. Accidental because I had planned to run to the store for a few things. We ended up being so busy all day long that it just didn't happen and we didn't stop anywhere for unplanned spending either (despite driving around quite a lot). Win, win, win! 

Average daily spending for 2016: $18.44
$26.85 Left in May's budget (4 days)


  1. What fun! I don't think I could pick up a toad though so (for once) I'm glad I wasn't in your garden! Brilliant on the spending!

    1. It was the cutest toad I've ever seen. Abner named him Muggoh. The little guy was at my sister's house. We've never seen a frog or toad in our yard. Never. I think we're just too intercity with too many cats around.

  2. Eh - its extra protein :) He'll eat (or has eaten without your knowledge) WAY worse things than oreos with a little frog juice on them :)

    1. Haha! I was thinking bacteria not protein but for real I am the exact opposite of a germ-a-pobe. I was watching him eat the oreos and it suddenly dawned on me, "any other mom would have probably made him wash his hands before this." Oops and gross.
