Diego - Where are you?
So anyone who knows my kids - know that they LOVE Diego and Dora. Diego, the Animal Rescuer, has saved us many times with his videos, games, etc. My kids could literally sit ALL day and never move if Diego was on tv. Kinda sad - but has been proven to be useful more times than not.
Well, now I need Diego for real. My neighbor called today and said she saw the cutest raccoon playing on our playset out back and then climb up the pole attached to our shed and climb into our shed through a hole where the roof attaches. And tonight, while the fireworks just started (we were watching from the safety of inside out house since Gavin was afraid of the loud noise), I saw the raccoon climb out and shimmy down the pole and off into the night. Then another. And another. I counted 6 adults (and that was just what I actually saw) plus HEARD numerous babies freaking out because the adults left and the fireworks scared the crap out of them. So I think we have a brothel/nesting area for some slutty raccoons. Diego - come rescue these animals before we resort to inhumane resorts! (For those animal rights activists - I am just kidding - we will handle this appropriately...and for those hunters - let me know when you are available).
