We went to see the Giant Sequoias over the weekend. We stopped in the gift shop at the lodge after breakfast to see if there were any souvenirs LaLa might like.

She picked up a giant plush spider and hugged it and said that she wanted “this one,mama”.
I said “Oh, you want a spider?”
She dropped it to the floor without even looking at it. She froze in fear and her eyes got huge. After 30 seconds, she said “I don’t like spiders, mama.”

I put it back in the basket and we picked out a big horn sheep and a marmot. (I liked the sheep, of course.). She picked the marmot and she’s been her constant companion ever since.
