Yes, it’s a ladybug. Chloe hasn’t yet given her a name, but that’s not to say she doesn’t love her very much.
When I arrived home from work today, Chloe grabbed my hand, eager to show me her “ladybug condo.” Chloe is holding the dwelling in the photo – which she made herself. The ladybug resides somewhere inside of it. Chloe even gave it some lettuce to eat.
You have to love her industriousness. Knowing that we have absolutely no desire to get a family pet, Chloe found her own little friend. We’re going to have to change the lettuce leaf in a couple of days because she doesn’t want the ladybug to get sick from bad greens. The bug has been in its condo now for a few hours, and I hope the lack of light hasn’t killed it yet. The good news is that if it has kicked the bucket, we have plenty more ladybugs in the attic waiting for some love and attention.
