Today I was searching in my closet for some shoes, when I was attacked by the largest spider I've ever seen. Ok, so I exaggerate sometimes, but this time I am not... It was about 2-3 inches round... LARGE. So, of course I squealed, like the girl I am and ran, waving my arms and jumping around, out of the bedroom. Adam, being in close range comes running down the hall saying "dance, mommy, dance!" Here's what happened after:
Me: Mommy isn't dancing. There is a very large spider in mommy's bedroom!
Adam: good spider, mommy? (everything is good to him, for some reason)
Me: Ummmm, Big spiders can bite and they aren't always good.
(Adam runs into the bedroom to see what I am talking about. I run after Adam and tell him to get on the bed. Large spider friend is sitting in the middle of the floor, smiling at me. Yes, he was smiling.)
Adam (jumping on the bed): Good spider, good spider, good spider.
Me (crying on the inside and carrying around one of my large cookbooks): Mommy is going to kill the spider, Adam, because he's not good and could give us ouchies.
(I stand over the large spider and drop the VERY heavy book... he's dead, right? WRONG! The freakin' thing ran INTO the closet again. So, this time I go and get the bug spray.)
Adam: Spider run mommy! Spider run.
Me: sigh. Yes, buddy the spider ran.
(I rummage through the shoes, using one of the hangers, and find the spider. I start spraying the bug spray as frantically as possible and the darn thing STILL ran away.)
Adam: GRRRR... Lion?
Me: No baby, mommy is not happy.
Adam: sad? (sticks out his tongue, because he thinks that's how he sticks his lip out...)
Me: yes, baby, yes.
I gave up! Never found the stupid thing. I did however make Andy go through the entire closet, shake all the shoes, and prove to me that there wasn't a spider in the closet. THEN..... we fogged the house. Not just for the spider, but we've had a massive amount of bugs lately so I thought maybe this was the final straw to make us fog the house.
We came to the conclusion that there had to be a hatching of spiders in the house, because we've killed many of the same looking spiders (in smaller form) this past week. Hopefully, all of the spiders and their kin are dead.
