Child Or Children of the Earth?

Winnie's cave bed was littered with her fur and drool and its cover had to be changed. Our human dug out old T-shirts again and found an interesting one.

This picture (bird's eye view) was taken from above and please don't mind our human's foot.

Feeling a little perplexed while staring at those words with Winnie inside, our human googled 'Child of the Earth' and found this.

Known as a “Child of the Earth” or “El Niño de la Tierra” in Spanish, this insect has also been called the Jerusalem cricket, and  “the old bald man” (Who-tzi-Neh) by many American Indian tribes, and the “potato bug.” ... In reality, they can bite, but usually only when they are cornered or when they are picked up.

So let us pretend that Winnie's cave bed says 'Children of the Earth', an organisation with the slogan, 'Inspires and unites young people for peace worldwide'.

Or shall our human add 'ren' after the word Child for Winnie?

Crikey, who knew there was a bug by that name?! Silly thing is, I actually read that as 'children' anyway, my brain auto-filling due to a long knowledge of the association!!! Now I have to go look up that bug... Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

That is such a great picture. 'Child of the Earth' sounds just right. Have a great day.

Winnie is lucky, she gets a variety on her cave.
