In other news, for all those who continue to wonder if Mr. Wild Dingo and I will have a baby, I'm pleased to announce we are expecting!
We're registered at Baby-Mantids-R-Us. For anyone who wants to knit, I'll need about 400 pairs of socks and hats. Due date is 3-8 weeks.
We're hatching two mantid eggs: one outside on the magnolia covered under shade, the other inside in a jar, kind of like an incubator. That's a damp paper towel for moisture and a custom twig designed by the fashionable and creative Mr. Wild Dingo. We are redefining child labor with our garden sweatshop for working baby mantids, the only sanctioned and morally-approved child labor force in the world!
If you are sick of my lady beetle photos, prepare yourselves for endless baby mantid photos!
No cash for the treat jar but you'd like to show the love? No problem! Connect with me on LinkedIn and endorse my creative writing skills. Thanks for the love!
