RoLey PoLiE BugGiEs...


Cole found dozens of "Roley Polie Buggies" outside tonight. Him and Addie had to divide the goods. He seriously came in with like 10 in his little hands. I immediately hunted a jar out of the cupboards to house them -- I get the shivers thinking about them loose and crawling in the house. He kept playing with them and letting them crawl up and down his arms. Gross. I know they are harmless, but have you ever watched it while you are eating dinner? Yuck. I kept telling him that they had to go outside. He says "But MOM! They need friends!" He won't give in. Smarty pants Bella says "But Coley, their mommy and daddy are outside. They just want their mommy and daddy!" An instant reaction... He heads out the door to free them. Melts my heart that Bella knew just what to say. Melts my heart that Cole is worried about them being without their mommy and daddy. My kids are cute...

I used to play with ants and potato bugs (roley polie bugs) all the time. Although I wasn't as sweet as Cole and Bella. I stuck them on a rock in a bowl of water and pretended they were on a deserted island. Sad for the poor bugs.
I love hearing your stories. They always make me smile!

you're kids aren't cute..they're ridiculous. And i'm jealous. You know i would have been catching bugs with them. I definitely wasn't as sweet when I was little. Ask mom. She found all the remains in her antique nail drawers. R.I.P rolie polies
