A Bug’s Life

“Here’s a cute picture of my daughter holding a Lady Bug. My daughter is 10 years old and has autism. About 3 years ago, she was very afraid of bugs. Now, she’s the bug expert in our house. She loves butterflies, bumblebees, ladybugs, etc.” -Stephanie S.



  1. YAY, for cute bugs and the kiddos who love them!

  2. Very cute picture for sure! Sounds like you have a little scientist in the making!

  3. I’ve read many accounts in which animals (dogs, cats, even chickens) have made a huge difference in reaching autistic children. Just so lovely.

  4. She’s doing much better than me. I love bumblebees, but I can’t bring myself to get near them.

    I like to pet bumblebees when they are feeding. Sometimes their fur is so soft you can’t really feel it.

  6. This is an amazing thing to see! Good job to you both!

  7. I love when a ladybug flies in someone’s face and they freak out, and then feel silly when they realize it’s a ladybug. I’m actually guilty of this more than anyone else I know, haha.

  8. I always learn such cool stuff here on CO!

  9. that’s great! colorado is a special place, for sure :)

  10. hah I love lady bugs !! I used to catch them and play with them so much … You just brought about my childhood memories. Lovely photo.

    Very nice story.

  12. Ladybugs are considered to be good luck. May this prosh ladybug bring much happiness to Stephanie and her awesome daughter. <3
