The great frog theory...by kim & pickles




Pickles: "Mom, I think I might know what kind of scientist I would like to be."
Mom: "You still want to invent the teleporter or something different?"
Pickles: "Well, we are disecting frogs in class, and I really think I'm interested in Biology, I think I would like to discover anti venom for jelly fish and stuff like that."
Mom: "Oh, very cool, than you can live somewhere nice and warm and we can come for long long visits."
Pickles: "Yeah and I can travel the world! I'll ask Thomas, because he was going to be a marine biologist at one time...then he had THAT awful teacher that made him change his mind...Do you think he would know us if he had become a marine biologist?"
Mom: "I don't think so! So you see, everything happens for a reason!"
Pickles: "Yeah, I think that he was sent to us, I think we needed him in our life a lot! I think that someone who is watching out for us, sent us to him! Yep that's what I think!!"

It's so funny that my 13 year old son feels this way! The exact same way that I feel about our Thomas, but never really expressed it in that way to him...He just knows!

My frog is so wonderful and special...He just made a big purchase for Pickles (please note that Frog is very frugal)...Pickles has decided to start running and coupled with the fact that his report card was excellent, he shot up in the grades this quarter...Thomas wanted to do something special for him, as he realizes that Cheese has a lot of things just for just himself at his Dad's house, but Pickles really doesn't have anything that he does not have to share or that is just his...(everything is shared in our house) So Thomas, ordered him an ipod!!! We are tracking it right now, it's coming from China!! It has his name engraved in it and honestly he will be soo psyched! Pickles is a very accepting kid, and when we say, no ipods or phones until you are ready and we will decide when that is, he basically just accepts it! Don't get me wrong, he tries the sales pitch every now and then!

I love my frog, because he puts so much thought into helping me make these little boys into good men! He is wonderful and he is ours, he was heaven sent:)

I'm sure there's a "dissecting FROGS/Thomas" joke in there somewhere!

That's a really sweet story.

Such a great post...very touching. Good things happen to good people who put themselves on a good path. And yes, things do happen for a reason and there is such a beauty about how it unfolds...all the pain we must go through to reach happiness.

You deserve Thomas, just as much as he deserves you and your wonderful boys. It is very fulfilling and inspiring to read about your relationship with your family (and by that, I include Thomas). There is so much love and encouragement there.

What a great gift for Pickles and very thoughtful and generous of Thomas! Way to go Pickles on the good grades! :)
