There are many days where little Miss follows DQ around the house or (more often) DQ drags Little Miss from one room to another so she can 'play' with her. Sunday was no different - the girls are busy moving from room to room and the hub and I are putting up the laundry, they are chitter chattering away when out of the blue we here this....
DQ - "OMG, there's a spider!"
Little Miss is crawling around DQ's room. (and yes, DQ has taken to calling her sister 'girl' like that is her name)
DQ - "Girl, there's a spider... I don't like spiders, oh, someone needs to kill it."
I'm about right across the hall and think I should probably go check this out, if Little Miss gets to it she will probably try and eat it...it's probably outside the window so I'll just hang up this shirt before I go in there. (insert bad parenting skills here)
DQ - "Oh, get it girl...I don't like it...Kill it - Kill the spider girl!"
It's about this time that I think yeah, I should probably go check the situation out, so I walk the 15 feet or so to DQ's room where I find her crouched in a corner and Little Miss looking at her like she's lost her mind, do a quick scan of the room (thinking for sure I will spot the spider and say -
Me - "Where is the spider? I don't see a spider."
DQ - "Yeah mom, it's right there!" pointing frantically at her bedspread.
Me - "Um, where I don't see it."
DQ - inches ever so close and says "See, mom...RIGHT THERE!"
Oh, I can see this tiny spec of something no bigger than this period . - that's a spider?
I smush it and go back to my room to resume putting up the laundry. As I walk in the hub says to me -
Hub - "Good thing Little Miss was in there to save DQ - she's only 9 months old and already has mastered the art of trapping and killing spiders by eating them!"
What's the worst thing you can remember getting your siblings to do? Do your children do this to their siblings?
