Since my mom seems to have lost the ability to type or somethin, I have decided to take over blogging responsibilities, at least for today. (I'm 2, you see, and I can't make any promises about how long this will hold my attention.) Anywho, Dean here. Mom's been working hard lately, but she says she'll be home every night now! Her show opened, so now she just goes down to Montgomery once a day, then comes home. This week, she got 2 days off! I talked her into letting me skip school today (it wasn't very hard...she's a sucker) and we went to the zoo!
I liked the draffs (giraffes), the grilla (gorilla) and the mamas (llamas). They are building a new elephant house, so the elephants were gone. Mom said we got a big discount on admission because of all the crazy construction. There wasn't even a sea lion show--what a gip.
My favorite parts of the zoo were the toucan, which is a bird, which lives in a nest (I learned that at school last week. Also, God made the birds. Did you know?), the choo choo train and the splash park.
Here's mom and me on the choo choo:
The funniest part of our visit was when we saw a monkey pooping, but mommy didn't take a picture of that. I did use the opportunity to show off my favorite new phrase: "Oh, no!"
Here I am in the splash park: (Be sure to check out the kid to my left...)
Here's one of my face:
It was totally fun. A little girl took off her bathing suit and swim diaper and played nekkid for a while before her mom caught her and wrapped her in a towel. Mommy says she's glad, but surprised, it wasn't me.
Mommy says I have grown so much this week that I look like a college student now. College seems pretty boring, so I"m in no mood to hurry there. They do sing songs sometimes, or at least they do in Daddy's shows at college, but they don't have nap time or anything.
Mommy signed us up for swimming lessons at the YMCA this summer. I'm so ready. I tried really hard to swim last summer, but Mommy wouldn't let go of me. She really cramps my style sometimes. I like to do things to throw her off-kilter. Tonight, for instance, I refused pasta, but ate 3 pieces of bread. Maybe I'll try chicken soon just to keep her on her toes.
I need to get someone to take me outside now so I can pass out on the couch at 7:00 again, just like I did last night after our walk around the block:
