Colin and I were playing in the basement yesterday - he was contently playing and then started saying "No, No, No" repeatedly (he always says no in 3's). I finally went over and he Colin was talking to an ant. Apparently the ant was coming a little too close for comfort.
He eventually picked up the ant, and asked me to open the door. I did, and he threw the ant in the garden - then he came inside, picked up another one and did the same thing.
So (1) I think we might have an ant problem in the basement and (2) Colin agrees that they belong outside and not on his toys - what a great helper!
