I think that she will grow up a Vegetarian. I can’t see her eating anything meat-wise that was once alive.
When my younger daughter was a little girl, she had a dress with butterflies on it, and she had butterfly wings (with matching hair elastics & wand), but someone had also given her a butterfly mask…so she put them all together & created her own superhero: Butterfly Bumpett! (Don’t ask where the name came from…I couldn’t tell you.)
I bet that the butterfly is really leaving to go suck on a milkweed.
We redid our yard with native plants. The birds, bees, and butterflies are doing their yearly thing right now. . .very kool!
Somehow, I don’t think Master Yoda had the same feeling for Luke Skywalker, his apprentice…
For those familiar with Breaking Cat News, here is a song I wrote for one of the cartoons:
Tommy: Green and blue and every hue all flutter by!
Sky ablaze we stand and gaze as they flutter by!
Watching the petals take flight,
Witness this beautiful sight!
A virtual garden in the sky
Watch it flutter by!
Oh! My heart sings as the flowers take wing
See them flutter by,
Rainbows fly way up in the sky
They all flutter by!
Oh! What joy to behold!
A myriad of color unfolds!
They all enthrall
As we watch them all
Flutter by high in the sky!
Figs: Es una flor
Tabitha: No es una flor, es una mariposa
Figs: Oh, enserio?
Tabitha: Como una flor, Don’t you adore them as they flutter by?
Figs: ¿Por qué estás cantando en ingles?
Tabitha: Gatita de Los Gatos no sabe mucho español
Wings unfold, what a sight to behold,
Watch them flutter by!
From the ground, what sights abound,
See them flutter by high in the sky!
A good butterfly teacher and a very dedicated apprentice!
A very sweet strip about a young madam butterfly.
Everyone should be a butterfly apprentice sometime in their lives.
I read on an iPad, so I can zoom in on the strips. I can see the smile on the butterfly’s face in the top right panel. SO SUPER CUTE!!!
Waitasec. Isn’t a “butterfly apprentice” a caterpillar?
This here show that all the complaints about Mimi being spoiled just isn’t true, a spoiled child would have thrown a tantrum over the butterfly insisting on leaving, Mimi politely asked it if it had to leave, and when it told her it needed a nap, she happily said goodbye and kept practicing by herself.
Her parents indulge her a lot, but Mimi is a very sweet and considerate child, much less selfish than is average for that age.
