A Girl and Her Worm

Dear Caitlin:

It makes me so happy to know that you love playing pirate, digging in the dirt in the backyard, and befriending a lowly worm as much as you love playing dress up with your jewelry and tutu and Mimi’s funny wigs. It also makes me happy to know I convinced you to release the lowly worm back to his dirt bachelor pad and that he really didn’t need to live in our house.

Love, Mommy

p.s. I know you’ve had the best time visiting with Grandma, Mimi and Pee Paw. We’ve missed you, but we’ll see you this afternoon and we’ll get ready for your soccer game!

    Caitlin is exactly the kind of little girl I would want if I had one. Actually, if I had a little girl, she would have to appreciate dirt and worms in this House of Testosterone!

    Hugs to both your girls.

    Awwww…..when I was that age I made a rock house for a caterpillar. It didn’t turn out too well for him.

    When I was about 5 I had a purse that looked like a small house. I put a fuzzy caterpillar in it along with some grass for him to munch on. He didn’t last very long.

    With a pic like that, at least you don’t have to feel guilty about the day with Grandma! She looks happy happy.

    (hope you and the hibs got a much needed break.)

    I LOVE girls with worms! Caitlin, you are so my kind of lil’ girl. Will you please show LB how to play with worms? She liked dolls too much. 🙂
