Toddler lore is writ like this: Do (eth) something (eth) cool and I shall find (eth) the most ordinary (eth) thing therein and love (eth) and squeeze (eth) it until you try to move me on and then (eth) I shall scream. Direct quote from the book of OMG-you-have-a-toddler-wouldn't-wanna-be-ya-at-bedtime by Anonymously Tired. Which is how, in a wonderland of lion enclosures, tree top bird aviary walk throughs and elephant families, we found ourselves camped out at the duck pond for the longest time. Actually, I'm not even sure that the ducks were part of the zoo. I suspect that perhaps they're just squatters who moved into a decorative lake. One day the keepers probably said to each other "hey, did you guys see those ducks on that nothing pond, what's up with that, did you put them there?". Just kidding, ducks deserve to be at the zoo just as much as any animal or bird. (not). Violet does love her some "chwact chwacts" though.

That was also the first day that we switched our pram around from Beatie being in a baby bassinet in the back to Beatie being the queen of the world up front while Violet creates a teenaged boy esque cave of disregarded food in the back. Its super awesome for both of them, I'm not even being sarcastic, they're so happy with their new spots. Finally though, it had rained all it could rain and we'd seen all we could see and it was time to go home, the sugar high finally having worn off. We had to make a huge game out of keeping Violet from falling asleep in the car. If she has longer than a 15 minute nap in the car she won't go down when we get home so we spent the ride laughing at her poor tired eyes drooping as she struggled to stay awake. And when she lost the battle we shouted and clapped and told her there was ice cream in the front seat. She kept opening her eyes and saying "ice-treen? more ice-treen?". By about half way home she had worked out there was no ice cream and was in on the joke. I heart family.
