...overheard today from Miss E to Miss A:
"What if you were a tiny ant and someone squished you? How would you feel?"
She also broke down in sobs one day last week when I smushed a spider hanging from my visor in the car. Eek!
Her exact words: "That is what's wrong with our world, Mama! Too many people kill our innocent insects instead of letting them live in their natural habitat!"
I told her,
1. A spider is an arachnid, not an insect. (correction not appreciated at the time)
2. My car is not the spider's natural habitat.
3. Next time I would let her hold it until we could stop and set it free.
