Then she goes outside and the girly-ness ends. She loves to dig in the dirt, roll in the grass, and play ball with her dad and brother. Today she found a new love as well - bugs. Timmy found an ant on the front steps and said it was like ant on WordWorld. Natalie ran over to see her new friend. As soon as she saw him she picked him up in her hand and hugged her hands to her chest with a grin. "I love my ant! He is my new pet!" And off she ran with her new friend. I knew the ant would be dead within seconds and was hoping to avoid any meltdowns when her pet perished. Sure enough, ant was dead. Surprisingly, Natalie was unaffected by this. She set off to find a new friend and it didn't take her long to find a new pet.
This is Mr. Beetle. He was wiggling and trying to get free as soon as she picked him up, but she was not going to let him go.
Showing me her new pet.
Checking him out. His little antennae were waving around in despair.
Hugging Mr. Beetle to death...literally.
So another precious pet perished. So she found another ant...
