That's a HUGE lesson in sex gender roles, eh? Not always what we expect.
I am petrified of spiders, a true phobia. When first dd was little, I used to have to do that "let's pretend we are not about to pee our pants, shall we?" routine. I'm much better then I once was, but even the toddler knows to go to dad for a spider problem, going to mom won't do any good LOL
My nephews adore bugs (a trait from their mama I might add) and love to bring me harvestors. I never knew too much about bugs before my sil came into my life bedise I didn't like them. Now I know those 'spiders' in my yard are not 'spiders' but insects who pretend to be spiders for safety (harvesters). And my nephews are sweet enough to bring them RIGHT INTO MY FACE to show me these things. And I know better then to act afraid, else those non-spider eight legged looking freaks would be tossed on me in a heart beat.
And I hate roaches too. We don't have the flying ones, and if we did I'd move LOL We get the big old field one though, big enough to make a clicking sound on metal when they scurry across it ::::EEEWWWWWW::::
Well...I guess you get to be informed about bugs too. LOL So, does Lucy have a cage now? My sil, I am sure, could tell you what to feed it to keep it alive and healthy for a good, long time.
The only thing worth stealing is a kiss from a sleeping child.
