Day 77: The Lap Tortoise

When you really, really, really want snacks – and not just any snacks but the GOOD ones – the best thing to do is to climb up into your mama’s lap.

She definitely won’t expect it.

She will be overcome with cuteness.

She will “ooh” and “aah” over you.

She will give you lots of shell scratches.

And she will lunge for the small rectangular flashing device to document the miracle.

(Here, you will want to pause and give her adequate time to acclimate and document or she might actually faint from “cuteness overload” and then….no snacks for you.)

A lap tortoise waits patiently to let her adoring shell-less mama document the miracle.

So just start slowly and dole out the cuteness as you climb up and over her legs and into her lap, pausing every time you feel she is getting close to passing out.

Like so.
