Darion: "Mom, can I write a message to my ants in the car?"
Me: "Sure! Your aunts would probably love to hear from you!"
Darion: "How do you spell 'This is your new queen?'"
That's when I realized he didn't mean "aunts" he meant "ants!" I helped him spell the words and he taped them to the jar facing the inside so the ants could read them. A few hours later the ants were all shriveled up and dead.
