For parents: The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Attack

It’s been 60 days.

60 days of enduring attacks by the hungry caterpillar. It started harmlessly enough, when the daughter first picked ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ as the book she wanted to read for her nightly bedtime story, and we happily read the tale of a caterpillar that eats enormous amounts of food to become a butterfly. ‘How Cute’, I thought after the first day. Boy was I wrong.

The next day, the daughter picked the same story for her bedtime routine, so we read about the caterpillar a second time. And then she picked it again the next night, and the next night too, and has picked that book every single night for the last 60 days, and for 60 straight days, I have read to her the exact same story of the exact same caterpillar eating the exact same foods and turning into the exact same butterfly.
