I is for Insects

If I believed in a higher being I might suspect that he (or she) blessed me with four sons because of my high tolerance for creatures with six-to-eight legs.
I wouldn't say I love bugs, but I don't hate them either. I once spent an hour on the floor of my dorm room trying to find a spider my roommate was "pretty sure," she'd seen because she didn't think she could go to bed knowing that it "might" be in our room.
Yes, the reason I have four sons today is because I once wielded the office "bug mug" and successfully relocated many misguided spiders rather than squashing them.

Read my A-to-Z posts to see if you have what it takes to be the parent of four boys.

Aside from being overrun every year by potato bugs and stinkbugs (common to this area, for some reason), I think insects are pretty cool. When my big kids were little, we had lots of fun observing them in the wild. I don't so much see them out anymore. :-)

I have four grandsons and two sons and am not afraid of bugs Bugs yes, snakes no. And I love your header photo--happy times.

Ha ha! I love this. I only had one son and that was enough for me when it came to bugs. Luckily, they were not what he was really into growing up. If he came across one he was interested, especially scorpions, but beyond that, he didn't go out of his way to find them. Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.com
