Melina and the Caterpillar
A few weeks ago, I took Melina for a walk. We saw a caterpillar on the sidewalk, and I pointed it out to her. She saw it and said, "Caterpillar walking." After we watched it for a minute, she said, "It turn into butterfly." Needless to say, I was surprised. We had seen a PBS show on monarch butterflies about two weeks before, which I'm guessing is where she got it from. As the caterpillar crawled into the grass, Melina said, "Bye, caterpillar," blew it a kiss, and said, "I love you, caterpillar." Once it was hidden in the grass, we continued our walk.
