I’ve previously blogged about the side effects of being married to an ecologist. It turns out that creepy crawlies are not just a ‘boy’ thing. Our daughter is equally enthusiastic about the 6 and 8 legged members of the animal kingdom. It continues to be a challenge for me as I clearly have some deep-rooted issues with invertebrates. A couple months shy of 2 and 4, my children already have a growing collection of field guides. On the weekend we were having a strangely quiet car journey across town. I looked over my shoulder and this was what my two were up to.
