My enterprising daughter...



As it's gotten colder here, we've naturally had lots of spiders try to move inside with us. This morning, as I smashed a spider during breakfast, my second oldest asked, "Why do so many spiders come in our house?"

After I explained that they come in because it's cold outside and they are looking for a warm place to be, I could see my 5-year-old's wheels turning. After a minute, she said, "I think we should cut up one of our blankets into little tiny spider blankets and sell them to the spiders. Then they will be warm and they'll stay outside."

We don't have lemonade stands in this family...we have spider blanket stands. :)

The greatest thing about children is that they always seem to see the positive in everything! Most of us are like ahhhh when all the spiders come in, leave it to a child to think of the spider's needs

I just killed a big spider running across our floor....... i have to admit, I was thinking more along the lines of how to dispose of the remains rather than spider blankets...
