The green bug fan club

Kate: MOMMY!!!!!! Green Bug!!!

Me: You found a green Bug?

Kate: YES!!!!!! GREEN BUG!!!!!!

Kate: TOUCH IT.

Me: Um, I don't want to.

Kate: TOUCH IT MOMMY.

Me: (Pretending to touch it): There, mommy touched it. Very neat.

Kate: M O M M Y.

Kate: T O U C H.

Kate: G R E E N.

Kate: B U G.

Me: Kate, I don't want....

Kate: N O W.

(This continues on for exactly ONE HOUR)

Kate: MOOOOOOOMMMMMMMYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me: (Just about to lose my mind) Yes, Kate?

Kate: GREEN BUG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me: (rolling eyes) Yep, I've seen it. You found a green bug.

Kate: YES! TOUCH IT! GREEN BUG TOUCH!

Sound of me gnashing my teeth together to keep from screaming or stomping on the green bug so it dies and I never have to hear about the green bug EVER AGAIN. What do I do to make this stop?!?! Oh, right, what every good mother does...

Me: Kate, do you want to watch some TV now?

Blessed silence from the green bug fan club. Now if only I could get Kate to watch Dora on mute.

What you don't want to touch a green bug? I had an experience today with a lizard. It involved removing it from the dog's mouth while Lily was screaming in horror for the poor lizard.
