Here she is. Two weeks from eighteen. I found her asleep on the sofa this morning, because apparently she found the creature below in her room last night. Little things like these make it really hard for a mama to let her baby grow up and go out into the real world... or at least... to college.
(Photo shows him slightly smaller than actual size. Unless you love arachnids, you probably don't want to click on it. Although, as wolf spiders go, he's pretty darn cute, in my humble opinion.)
