A small visitor... and stop motion bad mothering

The ladybugs have congregated in our backyard to throw their version of Woodstock. The grass is positively brimming with black and red polka dots. This, of course, delights the girls to pieces.

Upon rescuing a little ladybug from being trampled by a scampering toddler, the girls felt it necessary to pull up and chair and chat endlessly with the visiting bug... who I'm sure was having quite a big day.

This soiree in the backyard was the highlight of some parenting moments I am none too proud of: 

After eating a couple handfuls of dirt...

... he decided to try his luck at scaling the planter...

... which was decidedly successful...

... until it wasn't.
