Now, I would much much rather have a kid obsessed with worms and bugs and dirt then one afraid of them – it would be too much work trying to renegotiate our lives to accommodate that fear! (I’m trying to picture camping with a kidlet who is terrified of bugs!) But I will say I cringed a little when I heard, “Mom, look! The worm is on my nose! It’s so silly!”
Ah yes, silly indeed!
I’m trying to work on our order of chicks. I think this time we’re going to try Austrolorps, Ameraucanas, New Hampshire Reds, and Dominiques. Supposedly all 4 breeds are docile, but good layers. More on this soon!
