Just Like a Circus

All the eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus!

Any other mamas feel like the ringleader that DOESN’T call the shots? I sure do.


I was cleaning up E from lunch and told A to go potty before nap. She covered her hands in soap but couldn’t reach the water so she ran around the bathroom, touching everything with her soapy hands first.

I set E down to turn on the water for A, and turned around to find E opening the potty lid to make her own splash pad.

She then tried ripping her bow off and it snapped in her face while I was taking this picture.

Life can be kind of crazy when you live in the zoo with wild animals.

You never know how loudly the tiger will roar when her baby cub sister is trying to sleep.

The kangaroos may think the zookeeper’s belly is the best place to jump.

Your baby giraffe may think 30 minutes of sleep via 5 minute nap increments is enough each day, whereas you’d prefer them to sleep like a koala 22 hours a day.

And one day those birds will leave their nest to go off on their own and mama bird will want a few more minutes of the crazy. We may not call ALL the shots these days but I’m planning to soak up the crazy because that’s what I’m living in right now!πŸ™ˆπŸ²πŸ―
