The Roly Poly


The typical Roly Poly as we like to call it!
So the story goes a little something like this...we were enjoying a little lunch outside at Grandma's house. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the food and the company. Charlee comes up to me and shows me she has found a Roly Poly Bug. Out of no where I say "Charlee, I will pay you a dollar if you eat that Roly Poly Bug." Why would a mother say this to her child? I have no idea! But it was wrong...probably! She just stares at me like "hmmmmm....a dollar?" Then Aunt Tammie says "Charlee, I will give you 5 dollars if you eat that Roly Poly Bug!!!" Charlee then confirms that if she eats this bug we will definitely give her $6.00. She fiddled with the bug and continued pondering if eating this bug was worth the money! Next thing I know, Charlee rolls the Roly Poly Bug up like this....

Grabs her drink, puts the bug into her mouth, take a swallow of juice and down the Roly Poly goes! She immediately holds out her little hand and says "I want my SIX DOLLARS!!!"

I about died! I really didn't think she would do it, what little girl eats a bug? And better yet, what mother entices her child with money to eat a bug? But, of course we paid up and Charlee went to Target and bought herself a hula hoop!

Charlee, GO GIRL!! You are much braver than Grandma would be. You will forever be able to say that you have eaten a bug. I'm not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing, but I think you can blame it on your mom. Hey, and you got a new hula hoop! That's way cool. We love you Miss Charlee!

As sassy as that girl is I'm not suprised at all haha! I could totally picture it all as I was reading the story. That is the funniest thing I've heard in a long time! We need to do dinner or lunch sometime. I miss you!

Sam just ate one of those last night. I didn't offer him money, though. He just picked it up and put it in before I could get to it! It made me think of this post. Too funny (and a little yucky)!
