detritus of fishing…

jasper is quite fascinated with the fishing process – the fishing part, the rod part, the reel part, the dead fish part, the jig part, all of it!

so when jon unloaded his tackle box to clean out and purge all the old stuff or broken stuff (have i rubbed off on him or what?), she was right in the thick of it!

escape from walden trail…

jasper lilith has been able to open our windows for some time now – unlock them, open them, close them and then lock them back up…  and kind of like when she started using stools to reach the deadbolts (and then became tall enough, yay) on all of our doors and therefore could open the doors?  i don’t like it…  nope, i don’t like it one bit…

our little escape artist is way too comfortable with all of our locking mechanisms to give a parent some peace of mind!

ok, so jasper lilith can open the windows – no surprise, been able to for awhile, but she has always kept to the sanctity of the house – she will unlock and throw open the window (with great panache, by the way) and then just hang out the window to talk to her doggies or just enjoy the breeze…  ok, i can take that, i guess…

until this week…  this week, i walk into the living room and see a window open and then i see a naked little jasper streaking through the back yard being chased by the dogs!!

splashing through the wet grass and having the time of her life just shrieking with naked glee…

stop.   my.  heart.

i gave her my best “you are about to soooooo get it, little girl” growl and ran out to the backyard to grab the escapee and give her Something To Think About…

there were tears and unhappiness and time out and “do you understands” galore…  need i mention all the scary things that go through my mind at the thought of her being getting outside randomly and without us knowing?  i mean, how long before she can open the fence gates and go into the front yard where the rest of the world awaits?????!!!!!

i think that by the time i took these pictures, she had already learned her lesson and knows that jasper DOES NOT climb out the windows…  ever…

well, the dinosaur probably talked her into it…

whhhhaaaatttt?  you say?  did she say dinosaur?  yah, i did…  ‘cuz, yeah, she seems to have an invisible…  pet?  friend?  i am leaning towards the pretend pet since it is apparently a dinosaur…  a.   dinosaur

some overheard bits of conversation between jasper lilith and the, um, dinosaur:

“hi, dinosar!!!  mama, need to feed dinosar!!!”

“oh, dinosar!!  hungwe?  heuh some eastuh candy!!”  “take little bite, ok?  i shauh with you!”

“mama!!!  dinosar wants blanket!!  dinosar take nap!!”

“by cayful, dinosar!!  ok?  beeeee cayful…”

“bad dinosar!!!  mom-mom, dinosar bite my bum! “

“pouh, dinosar!!  did you get spoon?” (as in The Spoon that she gets popped with sometimes when she is really In Trouble, yeah, that spoon)…

“did you fall down, dinosar?  oh, pouh dinosar…  need ban-aid?  i get one!”

“mama, dinosar needs come inside now!!  ok?  i let dinosar in…” (and this is where the opening and the closing of the windows comes into play)…

i tell you that dinosar is bad news…
