When asked Nature vs. Nurture, I am a Nature woman all the way. (Or at least most of the way.)

I could write for days about this, but sufficeth to say, I think most of our kids' choices are a reflection on themselves and not their parents.

But on the subject of bugs, I have triumphed over Nature, and taught my children to like bugs. Or, at least I taught Charlotte.  Ella has always liked bugs (Nature again). Charlotte, however, has been known to do the high-pitched squeal of terror when encountering even the most harmless of insects. I have worked very hard to stamp that out, and this is a picture of her and Ella passing a potato bug back and forth. The bug is not visible, so you will just have to trust me on this one.

Mission accomplished.

Soren is TERRIFIED of potato bugs! He can do horses, dogs, etc. but not potato bugs! Strange...
