Last night pirateguillermo found a Jerusalem cricket at the bottom of the stairs leading into the garage. Despite the verbage from the people on the link provided, this thing is NOT cute, it's NOT sweet-looking. It's gross. It's the kind of thing that would make Henry Kissinger girly scream. This thing is 2 1/2 inches long and just looks DEEE-sgusting. I'm writhing all over in disgust just thinking of it.

We put it in a jar and let the Baby Goddess take it outside for disposal. She was amused, but grossed out all the same.

Oh, god, I HATE those things! They are scary and creepy looking and make you want to drop something heavy on them, like a really big shoe!

No WAY!! I'm not squishing something that bulgy. I just have this heinous image of half a quart of green bug-yogurt spurting out and staining the carpet.

Babygoddess on bugs
Thanks to too many Taro Gomi readings, my first words to the Baby Goddess were, "Look baby, bugs poop too!" She then obsessed about not being able to see the bug poop because the big ol' bug was in the way.

After she released it into the wild, she spoke at length about how she wanted to keep the bug but she didn't want to let the bug get all over our food because then it would poop on the food and poop is gross. But the bug was cool but not the poop.

So, this baby is clear on two things: bugs are interesting, and poop is gross.

She will be 5 on Valentine's Day. But we have discussed the fact that, even though she is most emphatically NOT a baby, that because I'm her Mommy and she's my little kid, I have special permission to CALL her baby.

So I do.
