It's that time of year. Caterpillars everywhere. Yesterday afternoon, Ashlyn wanted to put a caterpillar in her critter catcher to keep as a pet. So, we caught the bug and surrounded it with leaves. I figured that's all it would need to survive. Ashlyn wanted to take the caterpillar to school, but I told her to ask her teacher, first. I went outside earlier to do some sunnin' and stopped to check on Abbigail (caterpillar #1's name). Abbigail wasn't moving. And she still hasn't moved in about 3 hours. Oops. Knowing that Ashlyn had gone to school to seek permission from her teacher to bring her new pet to school Friday, I thought to myself, "Well, hell." Lucky for Ashlyn, I am the best mom ever! You would have thought I was crazy if you had come to my house today. I was walking around all greased up with tanning oil- showing no shame in my larger size- wearing an old swim suit that's gettin kinda small. Hunting for a damn caterpillar to replace Abbigail. And Ta- Da! Meet Carli. I just hope she survives the night unlike her twin Abbigail.
