I am amazed at my children! We went to dinner at a friends house tonight and they have a pet tarantula named Shiloh which they pulled out for all to hold. MAN!!! I HATE spiders!!!! My children were so brave and each held the spider. When it came to them asking me to hold it, I promptly started to cry. Pretty embarrassing if you ask me, but that's true fear for you right? We had lot's of fun and really appreciate good friends.
