Shoo, Fly

We have lots of flies at our house. Nothing to do about it - they come in every time the doors open. Now, I have a knack for killing flies, if I do say so myself! I can usually kill them with one whack of the swatter. My children are so impressed with my swatting talent! Practice, practice, practice.

Needless to say, they attempt to emulate their insect-murdering mom. Kenny will carry around the swatter - he watches and swats but rarely makes his mark. Abbie hasn't requested the hot pink swatter. She seems content to allow me to do the job for her. But this morning we had a change in the Waldrop household. Abbie killed one on her own!! My daughter has never been so proud of herself! It was flying around her donut (yes, I bought donuts this morning) and she was tired of it! She got the little bugger! She's told us a few times like a guy reliving his favorite football play. Perhaps it's a girl thing.....

That is too cute. I would be proud of myself if I was 4 and got my first fly. Pretty good aim huh? Way to go Abbie! Hope she spared the donut!:)Nothing - not even killing a fly - is worth ruining a good donut! :)
