A few weeks ago, Nani bough Jack a Bug Catcher!
I was perfectly fine with pretending the fake spider in the Bug Catcher was Jack's new pet...but not Jack! He needed something more!
This week we had the perfect opportunity to catch a real-live cricket (or two, or three) and a Daddy Long-legs!
And Jack loves his new buggy friends!
Note: No bugs were harmed in this process...even though Jack was so excited about his new friends that he shook the be-jeezus out of them: he went a little, "I'm gonna love him, and squeeze him, and name him George" on the bugs...but they all hopped away, happily!
Entomologist-in-Training! I guess I'm going to have to get used to all things creepy, crawly, hoppy, and buggy!
