As a token of my regret for a three-day business trip, I brought home a shirt for Grace. It has ladybugs all over it and says "Cute as a bug."
This weekend, as the weather spiked to record highs and we began ditching our long-sleeved tops, I grabbed the shirt as a back-up to the fancy dress she was wearing, and we headed to our friends' house for a first communion celebration party and play time. [Here is Grace, the future entomologist, scanning the ground.]
True to the slogan, and her nature, Grace ended up with a live worm in one hand and a dead bumblebee in the other. She couldn't have been happier!
Worms, she says, are "tickley."
