Bug has decided that she is terrified of spiders. Weensy daddy longlegs elicit a piercing shriek if she spies one. A week ago, she passed right by them without a second glance. Today, on a family hike, she refused to cross a bridge on the trail because a dead (DEAD!) spider was laying in front of it.
Note: this is the same child that plucks cucumber beetles off of the birch tree and takes them into the pool to "swim" with her. So I'm really not buying the whole spiders-scare-me stance.
Me? I think she's bored, and this entertains her. Time for school, folks!
