My Boy and His Bugs

Need I say more?

Except perhaps it is a good thing we live in Alaska where most of the bugs are a) not this big and b) relatively harmless.

Oh, and one more thing . . . before being subject to my son’s inspection . . .

after being subject to same child’s inspection . . .

Make note of how many appendages are missing in the second photo.

Trying so hard not to let my phobias influence my bug-lovin’ son,

    Long ago Francy was scared to death of cockroaches. One day when my granddaughter, Lucy, was about 18 months, a cockroach walked across the kitchen floor at her house. Francy screamed, and Lucy started crying. Francy vowed from that moment that she would not be the cause of Lucy be afraid of bugs. Shortly after that Lucy discovered pill bugs in the garden. From then on, every time I visited, we would have to go outside and search for pill bugs, spiders, worms, etc. Lucy even had a “pet” dead cockroach in a plastic bowl. Now Lucy is 14 and has a pet white rat named Sophie. Be prepared.

      So far all he has asked for is a hamster . . . although we’ve had lots of containers with various bugs in them at different times . . . come to think of it he did tell me he is planning on getting a snake when he is a teenager. He can get a snake when he pays the mortgage.
