Caterpillar Kick Counts

I planned a long ride for this morning knowing I didn’t have to rush back with Zakman on vacation.

I prepped a pound of strawberries and chowed about half a pound before my ride.


Headed out on my bike on this perfect summer morning for 15.4 miles in 1 hour and 1 minute.

Upon my return I promptly polished off the other half pound of strawberries and the last of my pineapple too.


Yes, I practice dish conservation.

I checked in on our little buddy this morning too.

Brown Pupa

Hey Cinderella, you’ve got something on your shoulder there. And what are YOU looking at Sleeping Beauty?

Notice he’s turned brown?  I don’t know if this is a good thing or not. I considered googling “brown pupa normal” but I’ve had my fill of googling what’s normal and what’s not during two pregnancies. I think for pseudo baby #3 I’m just gonna roll with my brown pupa and hope for the best.

Although I do wish I could do kick counts for a little reassurance that he’s doing alright in there. Nothing like a few good kicks to reassure you everybody is still alive and well. I wonder if they do ultrasounds on caterpillars?
