Santa Beetle

Today Sarah had her four month injections (I can't believe she is already four months!).  The poor little one has been off all day.  Her last lot of injections were actually a blessing as they helped her to sleep and actually stoped her constant crying from her reflux but today she has needed lots of cuddles and after a looooong bath to try help her relax she got a bit of sleep.

Chloe on the other hand has had a lovely day outside playing.  After hearing her excitedly calling to me I went outside to her her say "look mummy I found Santa's bug!". 

She calls Christmas beetles 'Santas beetles/bugs' because after finding her about to stomp on one, as she does just about every bug (don't ask me why she feels the need to squish all the bugs/ ants in sight!) I stoped her telling her they were Santa's special helpers.

She now believes that all Christmas beetles are Santa's helpers and secretly see who are the good girls and boys so Santa knows who to deliver the presents to,  which is okay by me because it means these beetles don't suffer the same fate as all other bugs at the moment.

Oh, I love it! Now if you can just think of a suitable story for other insects the wildlife in your backyard will be safe :)

So happy to know that Chloe won't be stepping on my favourite beetles. I've seen so many at home this year! :)
