My mom did it to many things when we were little, then she finally started to break the habit a few years ago and my sister had a baby so it is coming back, dang!

Now we just have to try to prevent her from making my niece scared of bees, my mom is nutty about them and Kayla likes to immitate people. The other day niece told me there were bees above her, they were just flies or something, it was just like how Mom figures whatever it is is a bee if she hears buzzing and can't see it, even if it is March and just a stupid asian beetle (Iowa is infested with asian beetles and she was visiting me and one was in my curtains and she would not believe me that it was a beetle...)

I think both are cool. I take pics of bees and wasps and send them to her, I sent a whole series of them a couple days ago, first I sent a wasp pic, then I sent a pic of a bumble bee and titled the e-mail "not a wasp", then I sent a pic of a honey bee and put "Not as wasp, nor a bumble bee" then I sent a pic of my sister...

When people see spiders, they all want to kill them! I just catch them in a glass and put them outside, after all, would you like someone stepping on YOU?

When I see spiders in my apartment I let them be, figure they are eating bugs, rather have a spider in the corner than bugs flying about, especially mosquitos, hate them!
