~ Flies; To be or not to be... ~

Little Lamb likes to keep her shoes here,
rather than in the shoe cubby rack (just two feet away).


Scene:  Mom & Little Lamb in the kitchen, cooking breakfast together.
 
Mom:  Oooh.  There’s a fly…(running to get the zapper).

LL:  What?

Mom:  Correction, There WAS a fly in the house.

LL:  Did you kill it?!

Mom:  Yep.

LL:  Why???

Mom:  Because I didn’t want it to lay its eggs in my house, or to land on my food and spit up all over it, or…

LL:  Why not just let it free!?  It could have had little babies; God made it like that.  Imagine if you were living in its belly…   You could have just killed a million lives.  It should be flying outside like it’s supposed to be.

Mom:  (after a moment of silence) You’re my little St. Francis.

LL:  Well, I would never touch it.

Mom:  Do you mean physically & literally “touch” it, or to hurt it “touch it”.

LL:  Both.  (pause)  Well, unless it ate my favorite kind of cake.

Mom:  LOL (loudly)

LL:  (thoughtfully pausing).  Just kidding.

:o)

Little Lamb...lover of babies, animals and all God's creatures

  1. That is so profound and sweet at the same time! Children like your Little Lamb assure us that yup, biological diversity has some hope! Btw, that's a nice collection of shoes there :-)
