I don’t know exactly how many grass hoppers Ruby has brought home till date . Any time he could be found with a bottle for grass hoppers, with even grass for them to eat.
Whenever he goes out he finds out grass hoppers from no where. When we go to the park he suddenly points out the group of grass hoppers and the endless activities that goes on in the ground which we may otherwise not notice. After he gets dressed for school he goes hunting for grass hoppers.
This grass hopper, he claims to have saved from drowning. And sadly enough he could not find its family . They had even put some name for it which I don’t remember . But I realised it is a bit difficult to take this guy’s snap. Anyways he seemed to listen to Ruby.
Now he pores himself into the book of bugs we got from the Book Fest. He even sleeps with that book.
Right now he is reading the book to his grand mother and she is listening obligingly. 😀
Yesterday he enacted to me how a butterfly sucks nectar from a flower. How the wings move , how it maintains balance and so many other details which obviously he had observed himself. ( I wonder how they diagnosed him with ADDH )
I seriously think he may take up Entomology for his higher studies. ughh !!! Of all !!!
I don’t know if it is a trait of LD kids, they have a love for the down trodden. In the aquarium his favourite is the sucker , which no body else will notice otherwise.
Anyway now the skin specialist has warned him that grass hoppers may bite sometimes and he has to be careful.
