So we've had a Praying Mantis hanging out on the porch the last few days, and it sure is an impressive--and reverent--bug. I can't decide if it looks more like it is praying or directing the choir (Veronica, if you're out there, please advise!) Anyway, I pointed it out to Anna yesterday.
"Look Anna, It's a Praying Mantus. Do you know why they call it that?"
She shook her head.
"Because it's praying!"
"Bugs don't pray, mom," she said.
"Oh yeah they do," I said, "Just look at it."
"Who is it praying for?" she asked.
