Entomologist in Training?
Any parent knows how little influence they probably have over their kids' future. Except maybe those overbearing ones that force their kids into med school and then therapy.
Secretly, we try anyway. The Mrs and I got over our bug phobia when Frankie was born in an attempt to show her the infinite beauty of our natural surroundings in hopes she may someday become an entomologist. Don't know why we both like this discipline, but it seems like it might be a stimulating and fun way of life. She's beginning to spot many more bugs than we do; part a child's ability to not take their environment for granted.
This was an especially good sighting. When she sits still long enough, we're going to try to identify it using What's that Bug.
