I spent a lovely day with the 4 year old grandson at the zoo, I’m not sure what hurt most my legs from all the walking or my ears from the constant talking! It was a lovely day out in the sunshine though and hopefully Spring is round the corner.
It always make me wonder how happy the animals are in their compounds but at least the areas are so big now you sometimes have trouble finding them. The tiger cubs were looking very cute at their first press call and seemed to be loving the attention.
We spent a lot of time at the elephants or “big” as he called them when he was little as no way was he getting his mouth round elephant! This was about the 4th time we had been to the park and I am always amazed at how children can do the same things and love it like it was their first time. They are like it with films, can watch it over and over and laugh as if they have never heard it before. My little bookworm Izzy will read books that she really likes again and again! What age do we get to where we cannot do that or is it because we only just about find time to read it or watch it in the first place?
I love the time I spend with my grandchildren it’s such a different relationship from your own children and I guess it may have something to do with the fact that you can give them back, so you just get the good bit!
Time to relax now, where’s that wine!
