Tadpoles and Toads

Bongo's paws in a puddle with tadpolesThe other day I discovered that something had invaded my puddle. Tiny tadpoles filled it and they were everywhere.

I wasn’t sure what would become of my puddle.

Notice I said my puddle. I had to convince those tadpoles that it was still mine and they didn’t belong there.

So I watched those tadpoles every day and I tried to talk reason into them, but it wasn’t doing any good.

I kept hoping the tadpoles would be gone, but every day when I showed up to visit my puddle they were still there.

Nothing I did seemed to do any good.

Until one day when I went to visit my puddle I found a tadpole leaving it.

And the next day when I came back I found two of them out of the water.

Now to convince the rest of them.

This one seems a little confused. I don’t think it’s sure whether it’s a tadpole or a toad.

Come on buddy. You’re a toad. You’re a toad.

The next day I was really in luck. There were four little toadies hopping around on the rocks.

They even got stuck in a crack.

And today when I went back – well – there were still some tadpoles hanging out in my puddle.
