Desert Present

A package arrived today containing something we'd forgotten in Arizona, surprise snacks for the kids, and a giant Saguaro cactus for me and Chris. Ok, so it's not quite giant at the moment, but it could be enormous one day! Mom planted a similar one in her yard and has said we'll have fun "comparing growth annually." I'm not sure how she'll possibly win - her plant will be outside, subject to all the perils of nature. Our plant will enjoy life inside, where it will be loved, admired and talked to by all on a daily basis. On second thought, her cactus is probably better off. At least we have a better success rate with raising kids than we do with coddling cactus...

Kids aren't as prickly as coddling cacti!
