I'm Elly and I focus mainly on custom repainted Monster High and Ever After High dolls :). I'll paint pretty much anything, though! I love working on all different kinds of toys. I collect, customize, and covet.
Well, there are a number of ways to “convince” a parent since all parents are different. I would like to say that I strongly believe that if you are not paying rent/room and board or are not a legal adult, then you should abide by your mother’s rules.
That being said, most parents don’t like the idea of a snake being under their roof because of the negative stigma and myths that follows them (they’ll kill you in your sleep, kind of thing). Others, like my own father, are just creeped out by the legless reptiles. Education is your best friend.
So it all really depend’s on your mom’s reasoning behind not allowing you to get one… If she is scared of snakes, in general, there is a chance to break down that fear with education. If she doesn’t like the way they look, you can try with a different looking snake.
From my experience, many people think snakes look scary, don’t like well defined head of the pythons and boas but love the cutesy sock puppet face of a Kenyan Sand Boa.
Like, c’mon, who wouldnt love that ^ face?
If your mom is open to the idea of getting a snake even a little bit, you can definitely use the cute snakes as a tool to allow that idea to possibly grow into a permission. If that makes sense.
So, you may not end up getting a snake, at all, or maybe you just wont get the species you were looking for. But if you wait a few years or months, however long it takes for you to move out and get your own place. The delayed satisfaction will be much greater, I promise :)
Also, super sorry for not answering very quickly. >_<
Just look at that face, LOOK AT IT
Oh my god. Sand boas are sock puppets.
I get a lot of snake-o-phobes who think Seymour is absolutely precious :3. The best way to help someone overcome a fear is to figure out how to make it absolutely adorable to them.
It’s a Fallindoll Rabi from Junkyspot.com :).
Ah, the air filled with springtine plant reproduction cells and it’s time for the monthly PMS-induced sinus headache? Oh, joy! At least the antihistamine hasn’t completely knocked me out (yet), but things are the point where I’m incredibly aware of the fact that I can’t feel my eyelids.
Bahahah. I’m sorry you’re feeling icky, but the imagery here is just hilarious XD. We’re having ALL sorts of tree sperm related misery over this way, too. The cars were caked in pollen yesterday.
