my little ladybug is obsessed...with ladybugs,
and as they all start to arrive she is more intent on playing with them
(not a good idea, they are quite fragile!),
caring for them, naming them...and praying for them.
i love ladybugs, in fact, my grandmother has always called me ladybug,
(grandpa called me queenie--go figure!)
but i'm not so sure my house is set up
to house the amounts of ladybugs muffy would like.
i would much rather have a collection of skirts, dresses and accessories
of ladybugs like this from lilly...rather than picking up the little beetles
that are clinging to my curtains and creeping up the walls.
oh well, they're good luck, so i'll keep them around for awhile,
they make me --and muffy -- smile!
