Arctic Sled Sloths

During lunch today, Cody commented on a story headline that flashed by on our Echo Show.  It was a story that had something to do with a person successfully crossing the Arctic on their own.

Feeling as though I had just survived an equally daunting and recognition worthy journey to Target that day (one involving the two boys and their Christmas Target gift cards), I flippantly replied that it would be much more impressive if said person had done it taking only a sloth with them.  Why a sloth?  I don’t know. But they are pretty cute.

There was a brief discussion of sloths in snow and then Carter got all excited.

“No, mamma, no!” he shouted, “Instead of a sled dog team, they had a team of sled sloths!”

He then proceeded to slowly act out a running sloth, mouth slowly forming into the word “no!”  all the while staying seating at the table.  Again, not sure why the sloth would be yelling no, but I guess if I was a sloth, tethered to a team of other sloths and expected to pull a sled through the Arctic snow, I would yell no (along with some other choice words) too.

  1. Carter is hilarious! Wish I’d been there to see him do that.

  2. The Arctic is not on the top of my vacation wish list, but if I had a sloth powered sled….. I might reconsider.
