Ok, just look at this picture of Woodjie.  Just look at it.  Have you ever seen a more worried, pitiful face?  I dragged the kid outside to look at fireflies, but as we were getting ready to go, D made the mistake of telling him they're really made of fire. 

You never know when the kid will take playful teasing too seriously.  So he came inside to learn about how fireflies are nice, and hopefully next trip outside won't be so scary.

Rose, on the other hand, never really believed Daddy's story anyway.  Off she went to try to capture the fireflies with her brothers.


  1. I don't think we have fireflies in Australia which is a shame. I'd like to see them. Hope Woodjie feels more comfortable about them now.

    1. I don't remember seeing any when we lived there. Knowing Australia, if anyone brought a male/female pair over, they'd take over the whole continent in a few years like the bunnies. :/

  2. Love to watch the fireflies twinkling over soybean fields around here. They were fun to catch!

  3. Aww the poor wee boy! Rose on the other hand... I can't imagine much worrying her. She's growing!!!
