We saw Zebras and Camels and Giraffes.
STOP Mommy Daddy!
The nice thing about the Zoo is that there is always an animal that you want to see just around the next corner so this was a great place to let you be in charge.We ended up seeing all the animals we wanted to and having a wonderful time.
Control is a funny thing. We can become obsessed with having it and convinced that our way is the only way to do things. That causes stress and it's very unpleasant.Many times, I think we might not even be aware when we have gotten to a point where maintaining that level of control begins to control us.I'm trying to learn that there are times that control is important - when it is meant to protect you from danger - and times when control is important to hand over to you so that, even at 2, you build confidence in your ability to make decisions and discover that you can do things.Situations like this can be a lot of fun for me because I can let go in a safe environment and watch you in action.
From there we headed to the Merry-Go-Round.
You road the Jaguar (which you called "Sheena") and the caterpillar (Very Hungwy Caterpillar)and then headed home to enjoy a little down time after a very active day. Thanks for keeping us on course today, Buddy!
