Today Harry and I went to the zoo with Jamie and her little boys Ben and Hunter. Jamie went to college with Ben and me-- we were all on the speech team together. And now she and I are Sconnie mommies. Funny, huh?
We had a fabulous time at the zoo and the park and Barriques . All three boys were perfect angels even though they were sleepy toward the end and the restaurant was NOT kid friendly. There were, however, two little babies in there, each with his holier-than-thou mother, both of whom glared at us and seemed to be judging the crap ton of cookies our boys were eating. But they also seemd to be judging the screaming our boys were doing. Think how much MORE screaming there would have been without cookies!! And just wait until those babies can't be Bjorned into submission, ladies. Or nursed in public without biting the hell out of you and getting so distracted by I don't know the freaking AIR that they pop off to get a better look/feel/smell and leave your nipple exposed for the world to see. Ha! Just wait until then and see who you judge. I, for example, judged a woman who let her 2-year old lick the bugs off her car's front bumper. This was last spring when I was pregnant and thinking what an awesomely perfect parent I would effortlessly be. Today Harry licked the guard rails outside the polar bears' cage, and he digested at least 3 twigs and a strip of tree bark. And possibly a cigarette butt.
I didn't get a single pciture of Jamie, who looks beautiful and YOUNG, but I got a couple shots of the boys-- love the ones of Hunter relaxing on the grass! I am sure jamie got way better pics than I did. I was way too distracted by the wheels coming off my Eddie Bauer stroller and by the overwhelming cuteness of all the little boys together to properly document the afternoon.
