Praying Mantis

24th August 2011

Seriously, my husband is a full fledged weirdo.

A couple weeks ago, he rushed home early from work with a stick bug in a box.

Today, he brought home a praying mantis.

Evidently, he found this outside of his office again. I’m not sure how this happens – is he out there crawling around on the ground in search of a praying mantis? Dude, bugs don’t pay the bills.

But wouldn’t it be nice if they did?

Of course, the kids were thrilled, and by kids I mean my son and his daddy.

If the husband brings home a millipede next, I’m OUT.

      This kid used to be afraid of his own shadow, so it’s fun to see how excited he was today! Thanks CL!!

    Oh…how fun! Weirdo he may be, but how many kid’s dads bring home the “cool” stuff?
    We had a whole family of mantis’s that lived in our lilies for a few summers. Really cool creatures to watch 🙂

      At one point when I was trying to take a pic of it close up, it jumped towards the camera.Let’s just say I freaked out. It provided much comedic effect for my husband.

    I would have DIED if my husband brought that home. Every time i even seen the words Praying Mantis I think of an old episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I get all creeped out.

    I guess an upside to having a girl is that my husband doesn’t think she would be interested in bugs!
