While doing some painting outside, the girls overturned some rocks and found a millipede. At first, they were hesitant until I reassured them they're pretty gentle creepy crawlies. When they asked what they were called, I told them millipede but they somehow heard penelope. It began a lengthy conversation (and occasional argument) about who was going to hold the penelope.
|I think the girls heard Penelope because they already have a cousin of the same adorable name.|
Penelope is way cuter than millipede anyway.
