Good Lord! I took my team to the zoo today. Nothing special, we live two blocks away from the zoo so we get there a lot. Well, today I made the mistake (rookie mistake) of letting the tots out of the stroller. Seriously, what was it, first day on the Mom train, what was I thinkin'?!? The Little Man did have his little puppy leash on (no help) and Miss Peach took off like she didn't even know me. I chased after them spewing every cliche in the book..."don't touch that, don't put that in your mouth, come back here right now, if you don't stop that...we are going home") you get the picture.
What I don't get is, it seemed like every other kiddo was happily holding their parent's hand and strolling through the zoo looking at the animals. My Miss Peach acted like I was the wicked witch when I tried to hold her hand! Instead of looking at the animals, my team was more interested in picking trash up off the ground (yuck!). Why do they do this???
I finally (after two hours) gave up and stuffed my babes in the stroller (think repacking a parachute) and marched home. I kid you not, Miss Peach screamed her head off the entire way home...So not fun. Why does it seem when you are in that situation, that yours is the only kiddo having a meltdown? Just miserable!
