Is it a Spider?

"Is it a spider, Mommy?"

Hunter saw me pull out an empty jar from the cabinet and asked me that question. Bewildered at first where that came from, I suddenly remembered that the wolf spider we captured last summer was given a home in that same type of empty spaghetti sauce jar.

That was over six months ago. I was once again amazed at his ability to recall events from so long ago. He was only 29 months then, and I thought he didn't really care too much about the spider and wasn't paying very much attention. Apparently he was.

“The memory should be specially taxed in youth, since it is then that it is strongest and most tenacious. But in choosing the things that should be committed to memory the utmost care and forethought must be exercised; as lessons well learnt in youth are never forgotten.” -Arthur Schopenhauer

"Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee."
Deuteronomy 32:7
Hunter is 2 years, 10 months old
