Ollie:  What are they?
Me:  What do you think they are?
Ollie:  They're worms.
Me:  Almost... they're caterpillars.  When butterflies have babies, they start out as little caterpillars and then they grow into butterflies... they're baby butterflies.
(Ollie contemplates this for a moment)
Me:  Ollie, are you a baby?
Ollie:  Yes
Me:  Are you mama's baby?
Ollie:  Yes
Me:  What about Max?
Ollie: (pauses)... He's a caterpillar.
