“callapitter” is the ONE word that I will not correct my child(ren) when it is spoken.

Heck. Even Emily still says “callapitter” and she’s NINE!

I’m sorry, y’all. But saying “callapitter” is just too adorable.

Go on.

Just say it.

I’m sure these little jokers are probably some kind of plant killers and considered pests or something.

But….Caroline sure does love them.

She found them in the yard at school and has named them Slimy and Susie.

I’m not sure which is which.

This is the moment where she figured out what they eat.


And a black and white just ’cause I could smooch her face slap off.

    When I was a little child, just starting to attend school, I had some difficulty with pronouncing words. One of those words was caterpiller. I’d go to say it and out came “callapitter”.

    Look at that callapitter, look at those callapitters, they will grow up to be butterflies or moths.
