Home and Living Mommy Thoughts

Snake in the House

A few days ago my little boy called his dad and pointed to a snake. My hubby seeing from a far kinda look like snake, hurriedly went to my son and scooped him up to safety.

It was indeed a snake! But it was already dead when my son saw it (exhaled). My hubby nudged it, kicked it but it didn’t move. It was just a baby snake “sawa” or python. But it’s still a snake!

Oh boy! I said.. Thinking that if there was a small one then the mother is not far behind (we haven’t found the mom yet). Got really scared and told my husband what I thought. I’m damn scared of anything crawling especially cockroaches, spiders and snakes! Gosh, that time I froze and got goose bumps all over! We need to check the ceiling coz it’s dark there and snakes love to stay in dark and moist places. I once saw in the local news that featured a house somewhere in the neighboring city that caught a python hanging in the ceiling. The whole neighborhood was alarmed! I don’t know what the people did but they caught it and was placed in a sack.

Though the snake my son saw was just a small one, it’s very alarming because it’s a baby snake and momma snake doesn’t give birth to just one, so there might be others. That gave me the chill!

What if there are other babies hiding underneath our beds or behind the cabinets, in the bathroom or in the kitchen? Oh boy, getting scared already while writing this. Do we need to call a terminator or something? Gotta schedule a general cleaning of the whole house asap. Won’t be able to sleep well thinking there might be one slowly making it’s way to my sons’ bed.

I have seen a bigger one in a nearby canal but that was in another house in the same village I live in now. It wasn’t dead yet but not moving coz I think it ate a big mouse which was still squirming a bit inside it’s tummy. It was so full and belly so heavy that it had a hard time moving. It’s also a python. Should have taken a photo at that time, at least I have a remembrance,lol..

Just a thought here, have you seen one around your house? If yes, what did you do to it? If not, what are you going to do?

  1. Oh my, Eihdra! I got alarmed by your post. May I know where you are from? Just asking. You mentioned seeing a python in a canal inside your village and you saw another one in the news (you said it was from a nearby village). Not to sound unconcerned about your predicament, but I do would like to know if you’re near our village. Taga-Pasig ako. But I do pray for your safety, as well as that of your family. But who do you call ba to check for snakes in your house? Exterminator nga ba? Oh no.

    Anyway, maiba ako. I would like to inform you that I have awarded you and your blog (plus 14 other mom blogs) with the Stylish Blogger Award. Hope you can find it in your spare time to read my post about it at:
