The Worm Family

One day last week, we had a little scavenger hunt outside. I just kind of made up a list of items that the girls had to search for in the yard.

You know.

‘Cause I’m cool like that.

They each had a list with things like… a yellow flower, a leaf with a hole in it, a sweet gum ball…stuff like that.

And then?

There was that one little thing….

a worm.

Caroline was ALL.OVER.THAT.

I honestly had no clue that my girl would love worms so much.

She was digging and digging and digging.

She found…

“Duh baby” first.

Which, of course, was just a chopped off part of the sister worm.

Shhh….we aren’t telling that.

“Duh Mommy” was next.

“Duh sister and bwover”

and finally…

“Duh biggest one!! Dis is duh Daddy!!!”

She kept them in her little blue shovel and carried them around.

She actually PETTED them, y’all.

She’d rub their “widdle biddy necks”.

She told me “day have berry yong necks Mommy”.

Isn’t that cute?!

Eventually, you know, once they stopped moving so much, she put them back in the dirt so that they could take a nap.

I feel more worm time will be coming along soon.
