Papillon

We have had 3 of these in our laundry room all winter
I wanted to knock them off, but Mr M would never have forgiven me if I had!
I am so glad that I left them alone as on Wednesday the girls and watched the first one hatch.
Here's the first picture of our newest family member:


The girls were mesmerised the whole time, they both sat there watching for well over an hour! Lola was most upset when I took it to the window to let it fly outside - she thought we were going to keep it in the hutch with the guinea pigs!



I too had a lump in my throat when I let it go.

However, having a 3 year old and an 18 month old demanding we spend the next six hours camped out in the laundry waiting for the other two to hatch has taken the shine off this moment somewhat!
