Dallas, our five year old explorer, is interested in worms. Right now at school, her class is building a worm farm and learning about worms.
For the last several mornings Dallas has made sure that we save our egg shells, banana peels and apple cores because, “Worms eat those!”
This morning as we were getting in the car to go to school, Dallas found a worm on the sidewalk. She “rescued” it, and we decided that it would be a great addition to the worm farm at her school.
During the three minute trek to school Dallas generously let her sister, Reagan, hold the worm, during which time the worm pooped on Reagan’s hand.
As Reagan was proclaiming aloud her disgust and disapproval and wondering what to do with it Dallas calmly pointed out to all of us, “It’s natural. Worms poop too.”
And so there you have it. A very true and possibly even helpful biological insight… worms poop too.
