Bugs, moths and a little psychology
The mosquitos are out and biting with a vengence so we're looking for new bug repellent ideas because our old bottle of bug juice isn't cutting it this year. And with a new line of clothing that has bug repellent already in the material, I'm exploring our options right now.
But there is one insect L. does not want to repel - moths. She is fascinated with them and treats every one she can catch (and that would be lots because she's good at it) like loving pets. I'll never forget the night she watched an old Godzilla vs. Mothra movie with Fino and cried for an hour afterwards because Mothra died at the end.
Yeah, she really likes moths.
So the other night after some hunting around outside, she caught a new one and named her, "Pink Princess."
She made a bed of leaves and bark for Pink Princess before she went to bed. Of course the moth fluttered around the house all night and G. ended up closing their bedroom door to keep her out. G. does not feel the same affinity to moths that L. does.
So the next morning, after L. read Pink Princess a book, G. talked to her about how the moth's family might miss her if she stayed in the house all day. L. released her a little while later.
I think I need to take some lessons in psychology from G.
And if you know what kind of moth Pink Princess is, let me know.
