Investigation

Eleanor was quite fascinated with a millipede she saw on the study floor the other day. James has recently taken to collecting a 'mummy' and a 'baby' (both the same size) as pets and putting them in a plastic container, then giving them a drink (and unwittingly drowning them in the process). After a little encouragement, she decided to pat it...
...but was rather horrified when this resulted in it curling into a tight spiral!
It didn't take long until she was peering intently again, waiting for it to uncoil.

Isn't she adorable! At least she isn't afraid of them, my kids would run to me and ask me to take it away.

Ah ha - the humble millipede can keep a 2yr old amused for HOURS! I rememebre taking a heap of photos of Austy doing similar things with them when we moved in here and they were everywhere. Then when we were at my ob appointment and he was about 2.5yrs old, he found one in her office and she went to stand on it - we had to object or at least ask her to put off her kill until we'd left or the boy wouod have been horrified! He still chats to them occasionally... even dead ones.
