Thanks so much to everyone for your San Francisco suggestions! I leave tomorrow morning and am so stinking excited. Except I'm trying not to think about the part where maybe the Tiny Dark Lord will think that I've left forever and will either go into a decline or will start calling my sister-in-law "Mom" and then I will have to throw myself in a well, provided I can find one.
Ahem. Deep breath.
Wanted to share a few pics from Baby Animal Days, which I've been to before. This was the TDL's first year and I hoped he'd get a kick out of it.
Things he did seem to enjoy:
The hot dog
My water bottle
Being carried the entire time
Things that terrified him:
And this is a kid who is not afraid of dogs or cats and who loves taking carrots to feed the neighborhood horses. But get a baby chick near him . . .
He did warm up to the bunny, as you can see. But the first few pictures were of him trying to burrow into my armpit so that Bunnicula couldn't get him. Also, that baby lamb sucked on my finger. At which point I died of happiness but had to remain standing so that TDL could stay several feet above the terrifying newborn farm animals.
Did you guys know that this is how baby horses eat because they have such long legs? I swear I do not know what precious thing they will think up next.
