This is so cool!
The girls and I were cleaning off the deck this afternoon—making ready for the Minnesota winter, dontcha know—when I flipped over a rug and saw a giant spider.
“Kids, come quick!” I was so excited. “It’s a mommy spider and her egg sac!”
The girls came over to take a look and just as quickly backed away.
“Oh, for heaven’s sake,” I muttered. “You are a thousand times bigger than this spider is.” I shook my head as they maintained their distance. It is one thing to be raising girls but another thing to be raising girls. If you know what I mean.
Eventually they ran off to play while I stacked the deck chairs & kept an eye on Charlotte. One hour later and she is still clinging protectively to her sac.
Not surprisingly, I am touched.
