Walking to the back door of our house, my one-year-old daughter is distracted by activity at her feet. Still struggling to pronounce the word, she shouts the word for “bug.”
“BUH! BUH! BUH!”
Raising her legs, she begins to playfully stomp on the ants at her feet.
It was just yesterday that bugs were a source of wonderment and laughter. Today they are beings to be killed.
They say children learn by example. I must watch my steps.
