Don't kill the spiders... Yoda would say that

One thing is for sure, Maiya hates spiders.  She doesn't like them at all.   The tiniest of spiders in her room and she screams and carries on and wants them removed.  There is one in the corner of our bedroom ceiling and she looks up at it every night.  Even more surprising that I overheard this conversation in the backseat of the car this morning during carpool.

Maiya to Devin:  "Devin, if you see a spider, you shouldn't kill it or stomp on it or step on it or something like that.  Because it might be a daddy or a mommy or a big sister or a little sister.  Yoda would say that."

Then she opened her eyes big, faced Devin, nodding her head up and down while smiling and repeated, "Yoda would say that.  So instead you could take them outside with a cup or a piece of paper."

It's all about what Obi Wan Ka-Tony says.  Or what a makes a good Jedi.  Or what Yoda would say.

Yoda would say: The force is strong with this one.

I don't like spiders either! I once screamed so loudly over one (a very, vary large one) that the ped I worked for had to come out of an exam room to kill it! Luckily the mommy found it all quite hilarious!

This sounds like something she can use...
