I had a little revelation as to where my calm attitude was inherited from when she replied, "I heard crows are really easy to train." Now there's a project for Cole!
The sad ending of the story: when Dad came home the crow was flying around and flew right out the door when he opened it. The frog~ well, there's rumours that he also escaped into the great jungle which is our yard, but then again, I haven't gotten the official word on that from the official man who was said to have mouthed those words. Just another normal day in our life.
