I then tried to pull it off, but her finger had swollen too much. It started to change color so I even called my fireman brother David. He told me to cut her finger off and then the ball would come right off, but I did not take his advice. Just kidding, he was a big help.
I did however find some pliers and cut it off, but it was tough.

For all you mothers out there, I did not pass down my old cup to him as the title of this post might imply. I did the right thing and purchased him his own. That would not really be feasable since mine would be way to big.
Anyway, I knew that he would be excited and I knew that he would put it on right then and beat on it all day. That is exactly what happened. He loved it. We could not have bought him another toy that would have made him any happier.
A hat in case it starts raining.
A fireman's breathing apperatus - a timeless classic for sure
And football shoulder pads
He even wanted to put a stick on it and make a lacrosse stick with it. I was pretty proud. It's great to be a guy, girls don't get to have fun like this.
(6 of which we will be finding homes for if you are interested. If you are cool enough to read my man blog, I know that you will be great parents.)
Last Saturday night, she started following us around and acting kind of funny. Jackson let her outside and soon she was nowhere to be found. We looked for her quite a bit for the rest of the night, but could not. When we came home from church it was starting to rain and Tonya spotted her in our back yard. She then led her under our deck steps where she had the nestled in a little nest in our ivy. We both crawled under our deck steps in the rain reaching in pulling out kitten after kitten until finally we had seven. It was like a magician pulling handkerchiefs out of his hand. After each kitten, we thought we had the last one and then there was another, and then another. I hope that our great cat houdini has performed her last trick.
