Dave

I flew in to Helena after four days in Denver. Jamie and the girls picked me up from the airport and informed me they had a surprise to show me when I got home. I envisioned a super-clean house or some fresh flowers on the dining table.

Then Eliza, my 5 year old, told me it started with a U. Hmmm...Underwear off the bathroom floor? Geez...I couldn't guess. Then Caroline, who's 8, said, "No it doesn't. I think it starts with an E." Jamie kept quiet.

We walk in the door and I was told I had to close my eyes. I stood in the door way, exhausted and happy to be home. They shouted, "Open your eyes now!" And before me, I swear to you, I saw a baby green iguana. It is our new pet.

Yes, this is my life.

I admit, he is kinda cute.

Tuesday, I found myself buying a mango at the grocery store just for Dave. If you can't beat 'em...
