There are moments in you child's life when you just have to stop and write it down, yesterday was one of those moments. I'm hoping to make this a scrap page but until then, I want to write it down so I can remember it well, it was priceless. We had just got back from the boys first soccer game and Andy decided to stay outside and bury a few dinosaurs in the front yard (so he can discover them later). In the process, he found a potato bug. Very excited he brings it over to show Carsten, I walk over and find him poking at the bug (gently) with his finger and this is the conversation that follows:
Me : What are you doing to that poor bug
Andy: I want him to curl up like an amarilla (Armadillo)
Me: I think they only do that when they are scared
Carsten: Lets scare him
Me: No, go put him back
Andy: Hey Carsten, lets scare him with a dinosaur!
Carsten: Great Idea!
They run to dinosaurs, I run to camera
Carsten : ROAR!
It didn't work, and they lost interest and put the bug back, but it was hysterical for me to watch.
