My girls found a stray...

...ladybug! Last night we found a ladybug in the house and the girls were fascinated! They played with it and I was finally able to convince them he/she/whatever belonged outside. This morning I wake up to Ainsley with a flashlight shining in Renah's hand saying, "mommy, the ladybug was still outside waiting for us, she must really want to live here!" We did talk about going outside when mommy and daddy are sleeping then Renah went on and on about wanting a pet. I told her we had Miley (our dog) and she said, "that is only one pet!" Then I reminded her about the fish and we counted all the fish, "that is only 6 pets mommy, we need a ladybug too!" All the while the ladybug is "sleeping". They took turns watching it while the other did something. Finally after quite awhile, they took it back outside and made promises to the ladybug to always remember it and not to catch it again so it could be free. I think the wind finally took it away. Unless, they hid it in their room! A little while later, I was getting in the shower and found a spider that came up the drain.Iquickly washed it down the drain so as not to have that become the next ”pet”

I don't care for any kind of legged animal in our house, however, with 2 boys, I'm sure my time is coming. =)
