It’s not going to hurt you.
I called this Noah’s mantra when it comes to scary bugs, like butterflies.
We recently visited the Natural History Museum in L.A to see the Butterfly Pavilion, so many pretty butterflies and because it was nice and sunny the butterflies were very active.
Unfortunately, Noah didn’t think the same way and was holding onto me the whole time. At one point I was expecting him to freak out and cry but instead, he would say, “Don’t be scared. It’s not going to hurt you.” every time a butterfly would fly near him.
You have to love toddlers. They always surprise and can always teach you a lesson.
So remember, next time you become unsure about something say to yourself, “Everything will be okay.” It might work for you.
Here are a few pictures of the trip. Not that many. Just a few. 🙂
