Yesterday we came home to find a little green grasshopper in the house. The girls went nuts. They thought it was so cool and wanted to play with the poor little fella. I told them it would be okay but not to pick it up or try to touch him because we didn't want to hurt him. For a good fifteen minutes there was a lot of laughing and giggling and crawling around after him.

Then Camille said, "MOMMM, the grasshopper is dead."
Me: "Are you sure? or is he just not moving."
Mil: "He's not moving and he's dead too."

So, I go to investigate. There was little Miss Natalie with the grasshopper body in one hand and his head in the other. Yup, the grasshopper was dead.

My apologies Mr. Grasshopper I did not intend for you to meet your demise in my house but thank you for the entertainment you provided to my children. You led a good life.

If I was a grasshopper and my last act on earth was to make Mil and Nat laugh, I would be pleased. Kudos, grasshopper.

Kind of sad, but kind of funny at the same time. Your girls are so cute that I'm sure the grasshopper will forgive them :)
