We hear that female mantis eats male after mating.

But the truth is more horrible. It's not only after.
She sometimes eats her husband before or during mating.

If so, the wedding will be aborted.

Don't worry. Insects are tough.
The bride starts to bite food from the head.
A headless mantis can mate. And even if he loses the head and the breast, it is possible for a while.

Safe clothes

I have no kid.
I didn't know regulations about children's clothes until reading today's paper.
There are some dangerous parts, for example, a hood, strings or fasteners.
String may hang a baby.

In Japan, there is not any rule.
In Europe, the regulation seems strict.

Sometimes I make kids' clothes. All are for life-size dolls.
I posted them on my sewing site. Some of my clothes are bad for kids.

If you make clothes for your kid, you should replace strings by Velcro etc.
