Wiggly Worms

For most of their lives, I would have called Little A my daredevil. Over the past few months, she is going through a fearful phase, the littlest things make her shriek in fright. Our sweet (but slightly psychotic kitty) puts her into a tearful tizzy.

Last night, Daddio and The Littles ventured back from their secret garden path with a worm.

Little A had something to show me.

She had cried initially but as daddio praised her, she became very brave. Jon told her the story about her first encounter with an earthworm.

Yes, she took a bite of the worm.

She giggled as she heard the story and then reenacted it for us.

Little J’s reactions were similar even as time as passed.

All was well with the worm as Little A inspected each speck of the worm and then…it broke in two.

The camera was put away to calm the disgusted and grieving child. I showed her how the worm was now two worms and decided that was enough worm excitement for one day. The Littles decided they just wanted gummy kind from Aunt Susie. :)

I love the beautiful sotries. The two are the cuttest.

God Bless

Haha.....I can't say I blame them. I prefer the gummy kind, too. :)
