To update you on the caterpillar drama, he got himself almost completely into a chrysalis, and then exploded. It seems that the demon has fled. But this also means not one stinkin' butterfly will be had. *sigh*
And on a creepier note, even though he's half caterpillar and half chrysalis, and it's been days and days since he exploded and fell to the bottom, if you gingerly pick up the chrysalis, the caterpillar part wags back and forth. HOLY GUACOMOLE! That's just not right...
I have written to the customer service department to ask for advice and to try to help us figure out what we might have done wrong. If they please me or cheese me, I shall let you know.
We ended up being able to go outside and watch another class release their butterflies. First caterpillar envy, now butterfly envy. I'm so very, very flawed...

The Meek Moose clipart is part of the prize package in giveaway number two that will begin Saturday- but there are tons of lovely things in both, and you should go and try your luck. Here's the rafflecopter link for giveaway number one:
So, even in a world of exploding demon possessed caterpillars, there can be lollipop and rainbow moments. Thank the Lord for that.
