The EXTREMELY Hungry, On the Brink of Starvation, Shriveled Up Little Caterpillar Saga

Remember all my great ideas for the Very Hungry Caterpillar party for KID 2's 2nd birthday bash? And this cute little concoction for the birthday girl to wear? I would love to say the party was a hit and my brilliant visions of caterpillars and butterflies became a reality in my backyard. Unfortunately, that is not the case.

TWICE we have had to postpone this party due to illness. And TWICE I have had to deal with our older son's wrath upon learning the party was cancelled. On Friday night, as I made the cancellation phone calls, several friends heard screaming and crying in the background of my home. That was not the 2-year-old girl whose party was cancelled, was her older, bitterly disappointed, social butterfly brother. First he screamed, then he cried, then he subjected us to stony silence (that part was kinda nice after the first two rounds).

The bright side: Saturday ended up being a rainy day, so we couldn't have had the party outside anyway.

We're pretty much all sick right now. Ugh! Maybe we should just put the starving little caterpillar out of its misery...


  1. Get well SOON! Hope you are all better and can have a great caterpillar party...I have been lurking, but I LOVE your creative ideas! Have a great (healthy and well) week! Be blessed!

  2. Thanks, girls! We're working on it!

  3. We've been sick this weekend, too! Sorry to hear about your party. The headline for your post cracked me up!!

  4. Goodness, I think everyone we know has had someone get sick this past week!!!

    So sorry you had a rough weekend! That makes going to work on Monday especially hard. I feel like we didn't really get much of a "weekend" with so many sickos in the house! Hope you all feel better soon!
