Flashback Post – Here Lies the Caterpillar


In the process of our recent move, I came across the journal that I used to use to keep track of Makenna’s funny sayings and stories before I started this blog. Reading back through them, I knew I had to create a series of flashback posts. They are just too good not to be shared. Enjoy!

Age 3

One morning, Makenna found a caterpillar crawling across one of her toys in the car. I offered to put it out at daycare, but she freaked and flipped it to the nether regions of the car never to be found.

“Honey, why did you do that? Now it will be lost in here for ever.”

“Don’t worry, momma. We’ll see that caterpillar crawling around here someday.”

“Actually, he will probably die because he has no food.”

She looked very sad for a moment, then with certainty said,

“Well, then one day we’ll look around and see the dead caterpillar.”
