Everybody Loves Ladybugs!
July 20, 2007
Everyone loves ladybugs, especially little girls! Dan and I have a wonderful granddaughter, Madison, who is now two years old and has come to love the ladybug. Each year since she was born Madison has been with us for Milford’s Bug & Bud Festival and joined us in leading the opening parade. Just before the Festival the LadyBug Shops receives live ladybugs from Ladies in Red, which we give out to the community during the Festival. When Madison was just an infant we gave a ladybug to her and she calmly let it crawl on her hand. She now looks for them in the garden and when we go for walks. One day we were out for a walk and she stopped suddenly and reached down and picked up a ladybug and proudly told us what it was. She knows they are “good bugs” and she is very careful with them. What a fun way to teach a child about nature!
