The Frog Princess Part 2

Back in September 2011 I posted about how Princess Nagger likes to stalk the pond and capture goldfish for observation, and when we ended up with some resident frogs, she tried (unsuccessfully) to do same with them:


Fast-forward a year-and-a-half later, and she’s still fascinated with watching the frogs and goldfish at the pond (and so far hasn’t shown any interest in catching the frogs, thank goodness):


The smile was brought on by this little fellow (and his 3 brothers and sisters, not pictured):


We better make sure our next house has a pond for her critter watching, right?

  1. One thing that I thought I would never see in this desert I live in is bullfrogs. I don’t have any around our house, but I know people who do have the noisy fellows.

  2. When I was a kid, we use to catch frogs at our backyard especially on rainy seasons. I can tell it is hard to chase them around because they are slippery and they always jump all of a sudden. We learned how to catch them using some improvised bait.

  3. She’s pretty fabulous isn’t she? She has to have whatever she needs at your next house. There is a lot of exploring to do mom. I’ll bet she is making you something super fabulous for Mother’s Day. I can’t wait to see it. 🙂

    • She is pretty fabulous! 🙂 I think she’ll be very happy at all the potential exploration she’ll get to do after we move – plus there will be tons of perfect climbing trees, too. 😉 I’m looking forward to seeing what she makes me for Mother’s Day, too – if she remembers. She seemed a little disconcerted that Mother’s Day is this Sunday. 😉

  4. Are you sure she wasn’t a cat in a previous life? It would explain a lot… 🙂

    Happy WW! (And definitely, a pond needs to be on your “must have” list for the new place.)

    • AHAHAHAHA! She’ll be very happy you think that, EdT! She likes to act like a cat, so having been a cat in a previous life would definitely explain a lot. 😉 I told the hubby if our next house doesn’t have a pond, we’ll have to put one in…he’s on board with that idea! 🙂

  5. I’m sure wherever you land your feet next will have some amazing adventures with new critters and lakes or shores to explore. Great photos!

    • Absolutely, Denise! I’ve been painting the picture of what amazing adventures PN will have after we move – she’s finally gotten excited about the whole moving thing. 🙂 Plus she’s looking forward to getting to hang with her cousins who are only a year older than her – they participate in tons of adventures, so that helps too. 😉

  6. So sweet! Nature has a magical effect on kids. I love how fascinated they are with even the simplest things.

  8. As a kid, I recall how much fun it was to watch the tadpoles swim in the creek and to capture crawl dads. Of course there were tiny fish in the creek, but for the life of me I don’t remember what they were. Oh well, it was all a part of the lazy days of summer – an experience to last a life time. So shall this be the case for PN. Great WW photos. Thanks for hosting a linky party!

  9. What a fun adventure–stalking frogs and goldfish in the wild! Love how children are so fascinated with the simple things of life we adults tend to forget about. Really adorable pictures!

  10. That looks like all sorts of fun! I hope she finds something just as interesting when you move =) I was never really into catching things like that when I was little, I thought it was pretty gross.

    • I suspect she’ll find something just as interesting when we move since there are tons more areas to explore even at my parents’ house. 😉 Even though I was a tomboy growing up, I was never really into catching things like that – I had to draw the line somewhere! LOL! 🙂

  11. Don’t you love when your girl is like this? I have an 8-year-old who has started a field book for observations on animals this summer, already. Love this blog, and will be putting you in my feedly!

    • I do love it, Eli! And how cool your 8 year old started a field book for observation on animals – I might have to suggest that to Princess Nagger! 🙂 Thanks for the blog love – I’ve added you to my feedly, too! 😀

  12. your program hates me! This time it said Missing op. so no pic! 🙁 Lovin’ the pics – thanks for sharing. I have a granddaughter like her, but she is mesmerized by turtles. hehehehe Girls!!! lol Only prob I was the same way when I was little. Were you like your lil’ girl when you were little?

    • The hate has been dissipated! LOL! Turtles are cool! If we had any around here PN would probably be mesmerized by them, too. 😉 I was totally a tomboy growing up – PN is definitely my Mini Me! 🙂

  13. What a stunning child…and that smile! Isn’t it great the she loves nature and all the creatures that inhabit it. I, myself never got in touch with dirt, and slimy creatures. I think I missed out. Thanks for sharing.

  14. We have been invaded by frogs around here. So much water from all of the rain has attracted them. I got hubby to remove one from my bedroom window earlier today and take him outside, and then later I saw one hopping around the living room. I am not 100% sure but I THINK one of the dogs ATE that one! =O

    • You had one on your bedroom window and hopping in the living room?? How on earth did you maintain your sanity?? 🙂 I totally would have freaked out. 🙂 I bet your dog did eat it – I spotted one of our dogs mackin’ out on one once…it was quite disconcerting seeing frog legs hanging out of his mouth! 🙂

  15. I love it when you show Princess N, and her adventures.
    When are we going to see Little Guy too? Or is he too little yet?
