I've taken care of many a critter in my time. We've had a baby squirrel, raccoons, even a deer once, but the Chick came in yesterday with a first.
Now, to you and I, this may be a dead bug on an old, previously tossed out, bath brush, but to the Chick this is a Bugaboo and Bugaboo is sleeping. In fact, the ailing Bugaboo even had to take a nap in Nanaw's bed so he might feel better and eventually wake up. Alas, I fear that this Bugaboo is already with his Maker due to the petrified appearance of his remains, but in dealing with the imaginative mind of a 2 yr. old it's best not to mention the words "Heaven" or "funeral" concerning his state of being because she wasn't having any of it,,we tried that route. The Chick stayed busy for most of the afternoon cuddling and cooing to the brush nestled dead insect until Jerri was finally able to convince her that he needed a lot more rest and set him atop Ya-Ya's cage. He remains there still although the child has checked on him off and on. We're hoping she'll forget him so that Nanaw can send him off to bug Heaven.
We had the excellent news this week that Miss Jordan had ALL A's on her report card!! Her teacher wrote this note, "Jordan's excellent work is a reflection of her fine attitude and effort."
You know that makes a Nanny proud!!
