Just the other night, we were trying to figure out what we were going to eat. My second oldest offered to cut up some cabbage to go with our meal while I helped my oldest with her computer programming assignment. Not long after, I hear my second oldest yell for me to grab my microscope. “You’re going to want to see this!” she shouted.
I’m not one to argue. I took out the microscope only to find that we had a visitor. I stand corrected, we had a visitor all week that we only now noticed. Inside the cabbage was a caterpillar, eating away. He was so tiny and colored the exact hue of the cabbage that he could easily have been missed. The thought of that makes me feel two things (1) I would feel bad for the little guy and (2) Uh, I ate what?!? So yes, we found the dangers of not looking closely this week and came close to eating more than we intended. So grateful that my daughter has young eyes that see everything!
So here are the photos of our (almost) dinner this week…
This was where we found him, curled up and eating.
We then took him out and he walked around for a bit, only to return to his little hole to munch some more. We ended up taking him outside, where he will hopefully find plenty more to eat. I don’t want to have to worry about my next meal…
