our friend, Aimee, who has exceptional patience with my kids - heavy sigh - if only i had a tenth of her patience!
The entrance and exit to the Butterfly House had the double door super security so as not to allow any butterfly prisoners to escape. They gave us a big speech before we went inside about being careful not to harm them or touch their wings - they emphasized that if a butterfly lands on you, it is safe (well, duh). i think they covered some information about conservation. So we went in and looked around. Then all of a sudden I hear gasps. I looked past this college student in near tears (bless her heart) and see Gabriel stomping on a butterfly!
"What are you doing?!" I exclaimed.
"I didn't want it on me." he said matter of factly.
(don't think it ended there - I will spare you the gory details, there was discipline)
It was a little creepy and a little innocent all at the same time. Think of the little girl at the end of Kill Bill 2 where she talks about killing her gold fish.
