Petits Machins

May 19, 2009

Miles’s homework folder had a letter in it that he wrote yesterday in his language arts class:

Dear Dad,

Bladderwort plants suck up bugs. Sundew plants dissolve bugs, and so do Venus Fly Traps. Cobra lilies have bug soup. And Pitcher plants swallow bugs. Carnivorous plants are cool!

Love,

Miles

I’m not sure what prompted this outpouring of facts; perhaps he’d like a bug-eating plant to take care of. I know at least one person who’d be happy to help out.

I just hope I don’t receive a letter about dogs or cats.
