A Winter Morning At The Zoo

Today my son made besties with a Siberian tiger.  I’m not even kidding.  They practically had a playdate right there in the middle of the Big Cats Building, separated by only a couple inches of glass.  It was freakin’ fantastic.

This Morning’s Random Quotes From My Five Year Old:

“Why do people even have hair? Because if you get a tick on your head, you can’t even see it with hair.”  (Good point, I guess.)

“I wonder what heaven is like.  I bet you just put your hand out, pray for ice cream, and it just appears right in your hand.” (He’s gotta be right on this.)

“Mom, we’re gonna be late for school.  Again.  That’s fine.  I’ll just tell everyone we’re moving to Texas.” (Texas?  Huh.  Actually doesn’t sound like that bad of an idea right now.)

“I don’t care if it’s seven degrees out.  I’m not wearing a jacket.  I’ll look ridiculous.” (I blame this comment on all his older siblings.  #TooCool)

“I’m pretty sure all the cars are slowing down next to us ‘cuz they want to see my Spider-Man hat.”

“Mom, watch me juggle these invisible balls with my eyes closed.”

“Mom.  My pee kinda got out of control here.” (Yelling from the inside of a public bathroom stall.)

“I wish dinosaurs were still around, but they all died.  But we don’t have to feel bad for them.  They were mean anyway.” (Mean people- and dinosaurs- suck.)

“Mom, can you please stop talking.  I like it quiet when I’m looking at animals.” (Alrighty, then.)

“Mom, we both woke up on the right side of the bed today, and you look pretty and beautiful.  It’s both our lucky days, Mom!”

Lucky, indeed. Oh, how I love this boy.
