Zach and Maddie went outside yesterday to play with one of the other neighborhood kids. They were out there for HOURS – I love that. All kids should play outside for hours at a time – in fact, maybe there should be a law, but that’s another topic. Anyway, hubby comes home from work, and they’re still out there playing. When he asked them what they were doing, Zach tells him they’re burning bugs. With his magnifying glass. Maddie excitedly pipes in, “Yeah, and one of them caught on fire! So we spit on him!” Oh, the joys of summer. Unless you’re the bug.
On a side note, Zach ended up with a killer headache when they came inside. We couldn’t figure out why. Turns out he was looking at the bright light the magnifying glass made on the bugs. Ok, so I never said my kids were bright. (No pun intended.)
