Seriously, these last few weeks have been full of all sorts of learning for the kids. First there was the brutal butterfly butchery and then the malicious murder of that dear little bird.
Then, on Friday I went with Lily's class to the zoo. I was happy to see the excitement on Lily's little face when she first saw me and Solomon there and I was full of gladness that this little bit of effort made her so happy but I must admit, I wasn't entirely thrilled to spend my birthday at the zoo. Not initially anyway....
|Meet Solly's second cousin.....don't mind the 'stache, he's from over seas.|
|And Lily found herself back to back with Solly's long lost twin.....|
|This picture means nothing unless you know what he was so mesmerized watching.....|
|You see, there was a little baby Orangutang going to see his mommy.....|
|Mommy Orangutan wasn't interested in snuggling so she sent him down to get a shower.....|
|He opened his mouth nice and wide.....|
|And she peed ALL OVER HIS WAITING FACE!|
See Kids, I am NOT the worst mommy in the world! (But don't try me.....I now have a fresh bag of tricks.....)
|No, I am not making this up. I am not that creative.....or that disgusting (contrary to popular opinion)....|
|Lily and her peeps....apparently she is the only one who cared about the picture.....|
|And a fun time was had by all.....(Solly took this picture....no, not really. He'd be more likely to try to eat the camera and then smash it to the floor....)|
