Life with kids is always an adventure!

One of my favorite things about doing life with children is that even the most ordinary, every day things become adventures!

For example, today my car chimed that the gas was getting low, I pulled into a gas station to fill up the tank, which I've done countless times in my life, nothing exciting there, right?


I pulled opened the door to the gas tank, reached in to unscrew the gas cap and jerked my hand back in surprise because this is what I saw:

Yep, someone had wedged a plastic spider inside the little pull open door, right next to the gas cap! At first I thought such an elaborate prank was beyond the abilities of my children and surely must have been the work of my husband. But, I plucked the plastic spider out of the gas compartment, opened the car door, and showed it to my 4 year old son, "Look what I just found while I was pumping gas!"

He said, "Yeah, I found it yesterday and put it in there."

If he can pull off this prank at four, what am I in for at fourteen?

Life will not be dull, that is for sure! I'm thankful for the adventure that is life with kids!
