100 Word Challenge: Examine

The Doula and the Butterfly

The preschool class had the opportunity to observe the lifecycle of a butterfly, from egg to flight.  Lillian was eager to get to school every day, taking her role as butterfly doula very seriously.  Her mom was a doula, and she knew Mom helped when babies were born.  This was her chance to be just like Mom.  She would help this butterfly be born. 

So, diligently, Lillian monitored her charge, watching as the egg became a caterpillar, and then a chrysalis.  She could hardly wait!  One day, as she examined the chrysalis, the butterfly finally emerged.  “Hi.” she exclaimed. “Happy birthday!”
