Does this caterpillar make me look fat?


A while back we got one of those butterfly growing kits that you start from caterpillars. There were the same number of caterpillars as members of the family, so the children named each one after us. I was a little distraught when I heard one child declare, “The big one is Mommy.” But I felt a little better later on when I heard one say, “The caterpillar with its head in the food is Daddy.”

Sounds like that caterpillar had a rough night.

  1. When one of my sons was little, he drew a picture of our family. There was a normal-sized brother, father, and himself. I, on the other hand, was a giant. I took it to mean I was ever present and important in his life. So you should interpret your large caterpillar that way, too. It’s all about the spin, my dear, it’s all about the spin…

    Merry Christmas!
