Multiple Choice

You hear a cry from the other room:

“Mommy! I see a bug!!”

Do you:

a) Scream loudly and run for the hills.

b) Capture the bug in a bug house, study the antennae with a magnifying glass, point out the difference between spiders and insects and look it up in your Guide to Insects to see what it eats while the children decide which prominent scientist to name it after.

c) Run for the bug spray and a flyswatter.

or

d) Say automatically while unloading the dishwasher, “Don’t eat it.”

I’ll let you guess which one I am.

  1. Normally, I would be (a), but I've had to convert to a (c) to keep the girls from coming completely unglued.

    One benefit of having ants in the living room? The kids play in their room more and the house stays cleaner. (Maybe I'll let the ants stay….)

  2. My kids would have followed their initial comments with, “Mamma get your shoe!” or “it's okay Mamma, I've got a shoe!” Sigh.

    By the way, I am pleased to discover your blog. Back when I started blogging, I could only find a handful of other orthodox mothers; thanks be to God for finding so many more 🙂

  3. This is so funny! I'm usually d or I yell for my husband, who is b, and then after a while he places it the freezer in order to add to his bug collection. Then when it's time for me to take something out of the freezer, I somehow become a.
