A Disappointing Truth

Lindsay and Brandon were watching some episodes of the series, Planet Earth on DVD this afternoon. All was going well and then Lindsay started crying. I asked her what was wrong when she came into the kitchen where I was making dinner, and she could barely find her words.

She then wailed, "I love butterflies!" I said, "Well, that's good. They are very pretty, but why are you crying?" "That movie just said butterflies are bugs. I HATE BUGS!!!" I had to repress my giggling. I told her, "Sweetie, you can still like butterflies even though they are bugs". "NO I CAN'T!!! I HATE BUGS!"

So cute! We will always remember the day Lindsay found out one of her favorite things was actually... a bug. Only time will tell if she will forgive the butterfly for the species it belongs to.
