My cutie Kate is a nurturer. She thinks her baby brother is *her* baby, and she with mother anyone who will allow her the opportunity. Enter the fuzzy caterpillar that the kids found on the deck. It soon became her first and only priority. She emptied all the toys from a container to make a home for it. She supplied sticks on which he could climb, leaves for nourishment, and a constant supply of love and attention.
Unfortunately, she left the lid off during nap time, and the little guy was off on a new adventure. I am sure there will be many more little creatures to come, but Kate was pretty happy to put some of that nurturing to good use, even if it was only for one sunny spring morning.
