“Don’t lick the praying mantis!”

29 Sep

Yes, this sentence came out of my mouth. Not ten seconds before saying this, I was saying, ‘PUT THE DOG POOP DOWN!’

Miss H likes all kinds of bugs and she has to touch everything. It seems the bigger the bug the better. Since I am not a fan of any kind of bug, I am assuming she got this love from Kerry. There was a huge praying mantis on our door and her first thought was to give it a kiss. I guess she was welcoming it to the neighborhood. To my shock, the bug did not move but let Miss H get tongue onto her back. Yuck. Of course, I then had to make sure they were not poisonous.

Kerry and I often laugh about the things we talk about or say out loud. This ranks up there with the strangest.

And, staying on the topic of strange. Miss H has a new favorite spot to try and nap.

    Isn’t it funny the things we end up saying?

    I have three boys, so mine tend to revolve around poop and butts and other body parts. SIGH.

    Oh my goodness, Hadley is so brave! I wonder at what age the fear of bugs sets in…
