Daddy Long Spider
Aiden has a love/hate relationship with spiders. He finds them fascinating, but is dreadfully afraid of their webs. I call him my spider-web police: always alerting me to them. Lately, the daddy long leg spiders have been having their month of glory on our fence. I pick them up and show them to Aiden in an attempt to break his little phobia. Courtesy of the dead tree in our back 40 (40 feet, but hey, it's 40!), some big branches have been landing in the yard after rainstorms. Active imagination turned on: they are called "Daddy Long Spiders!"
