Last week, the ladybugs (a nickname given by Daddy) had a fun first: their first suckers! Our neighbor got great humor out of sharing his Tootsie Pops with the girls ... because he didn't have to clean them up!
As you can imagine, they LOVED the suckers. They carried them around until the suckers were covered in dirt and the girls were covered in red stickiness. At that point, I threw the suckers away.
Or did I?
Yesterday, the girls were being unusually quiet while playing together. When I went to check on them ... yep, those suckers had been dug out of the trash can and were being enjoyed again -- dirt, dog hair, and all! I guess I'm the sucker in this story! :)
