National Geographic (through the eyes of a 4 year-old)

Geneva has a book:
It's a really sweet story about a lonely spider who tries to invite some other insects to tea.
Yesterday, she discovered these spiders through the window.
"Mom! Come see; these spiders are going to have a tea party."
She had no idea they were battling for a coveted web-building spot. I had no idea how it might all end. We watched for a while and then it was time for lunch. During lunch, while the kids ate, I kept my eye on the arachnids. They were definitely attacking each other.
After lunch, Geneva checked her tea party friends.
"Look Momma! They are hugging. They're married."
There was definitely an "embrace" happening. I wasn't sure which one was going to survive. I wasn't sure how I was going to get out of this...
Me: "Ok Hon. Time to get ready for your nap."
After she went to the bathroom she wanted to check on her "married spiders" once more.
"Where's the orange one?"
Me: "Shhh... sleeping. See? The Daddy spider tucked her in for nap time. It's your nap time too. Let's go."
Sweet dreams!
