Steve Irwin's influence

We let Dominic snuggle in our bed in the morning while we are getting ourselves ready for the day, and for the last several months we've been  having him watch Crocodile Hunter with Steve Irwin (out on Austrailia) and he's been really enjoying shows on crocodiles, snakes, creepy bugs, big game animals, etc.

This morning, i called Dominic to come get his shoes on so we could go to the store for something.  he came upstairs, dug under a cushion, and pulled something out pinched gingerly between his thumb and forefinger, held all the way away from his body.  Hm. Okaaaay.  Whatcha got there, kiddo? (I was thinking it was one of his little fidget toys).   Spider, he says.   Then he proceeded to use two halves of one of those containers you get out of a vending toy machine at the grocery store to carefully pick it up and store it

It was actually a (very dead) small black and white spider.

Fantastic.  Not.
