When Lizzie was very little she LOVED ladybugs. She collected them in a little jar and named them all, quite originally, "Lady".
Oh, she loved those ladybugs. We poked holes in the lids and fed them bits of leaves.
We always let the ladybugs go. As far as I know, we never lost one.
When I saw these ladybugs today, I thought, "wow, I have to show Lizzie", but they don't hold the same thrall for her as they used to.
My baby is growing up.
