Young Owl and Little Monkey are total hams. They may not always want to have their pictures taken but when it’s their idea they totally ham it up for the camera. Here Young Owl is showing me his super hero pose. Little Monkey is a super hero too (as you can so clearly tell by his cape) who is on vacation.
I still have a weakness for pretty shoes. A walk past the shoe department in a fancy department store always makes me long to be working in a professional (out of the house job) just so I have an excuse to buy fancy-pants shoes.
It’s okay to cook veggies even if I’m the only person in the house eating them. Yummy squash and zucchini (not to mention the fresh green beans I made tonight). The poor boys just don’t understand what they’re missing. At least I won’t have to share my tomatoes when they finally ripen.
There is nothing that pulls at my heart more than watching Little Monkey sleep. No matter how much of a terror he is during the day, nothing is sweeter than seeing Little Monkey in deep sleep. It helps remind me that these last few days of toddler-hood are fleeting and before I know it they’ll be gone. Added bonus, he stays in one place when he sleeps!
I’m a crayon snob. They have to be sharp, they have to be Crayola, and Mama Zookeeper doesn’t like to share her crayons with the rest of the zoo. I admit it, now I feel better.
Farmer’s Markets can be events, not just markets. We ventured out for the first time to the near by city’s weekend Farmer’s Market. It was so overwhelming. Young Owl immediately commented that it was like being at the state fair. I felt lost looking at all the choices, most of which were the same produce just different venders, in the five or so block area. I did come home with some of the best peaches I’ve ever tasted! (Yes, they were from out of state but still very fresh.)
