Cocoon

A couple posts ago, we told you few folks that still visit that we had captured a cocoon and were hoping for a more positive outcome that our last butterfly hatching. Well, lo and feakin' behold.


We didn't notice that the critter had emerged until it had already dropped down and moved over to a plastic bag on the counter. The kitchen looks the way it does because Becky decided to paint the walls.....again.
We moved it outside pretty quick. I figure that if the oil-based paint fumes were burning MY eyes, it must have been even more uncomfortable for a newborn who breathes through its skin.

That's so awesome! Cool for your kids to witness the process, too.

"Feakin"?

Very cool butterfly. Love you,

I agree with Tolpeople. "Feakin" is great. The way you've used it sucks the oxygen out of two cliches at once: "freakin'" and "lo and behold." This type of language is fresh as the newly painted cupboards and the newly hatched butterfly, combined.
