Yes, I checked on little Slimey today after probably more than a week and found this.
He's not alive anymore. I'm having a really hard time with this. I am a horrible caterpillar keeper. I can't believe he came out of his cocoon and we didn't know about it. I just feel so sad. Like it was just a waste of time.
When I showed the boys Simon said, "So when is it going to turn into a butterfly?" I had to explain it to him that this caterpillar was made to be a moth, not a butterfly. So sweet though. :) I didn't have the heart to tell him that the moth was actually dead. Maybe tomorrow - or IF he asks about it another day.
So the Slimey Stats are over........and I'm really sad about it. I'd be a lot less sad if we were able to let him go in the gorgeous January weather. Oh well!
