…to the family. Meet Sparkles, the stick insect. Evie has spent all evening talking to her in her room. She’s quite smitten with her.

My daughter did the same when our hermit crab came home. Nice doodle.
That is so cute haha. When I was a little girl a cricket landed on me and I screamed and cried for an hour, now I have a fear of them. I wish I learn’t to embrace our insect friends at a young age.
Look, I know you wouldn’t tell lies, and Evie wouldn’t spend an evening talking to a load of leaves ( would she?!), but I’m blowed if I can see Sparkles! They are masters/ mistresses of disguise- a friend’s son had one, and it took him three days to realise the ruddy thing had escaped- he just thought it was well camouflaged and shy!
😀 I have to really look but she’s quite lovely, she pretends she’s a leaf when she feels threatened and wobbles like one in the breeze.
I remember fostering a stick-insect as a child, they make very cool pets. Sparkles is a brilliant name!
