A couple of weeks ago Luppin was helping me water our garden, when I noticed a praying mantis on the lawn. I pointed it out to her and she thought it was the coolest thing ever. I told her that she should not hurt the big bug because it was a good bug that ate the bad bugs. Every time Luppin would go to fill the watering can she would walk past the mantis and say, “mommy, look, Mr. Mantis is still here!” or she would point out that she was being careful and not stepping on him. I thought she was being really cute so I took a picture of her and the bug.
