Luca went on his first trip to the zoo today … and that’s not just any old zoo; oh no – we went to the beautiful Washington DC zoo along with a bunch of other FS parents and children. Yes, we saw the pandas and the birds, stopped for lunch, and then Luca was done with being in the stroller and having to watch animals. His highness demanded to be carried and cuddled but that was not so much in Mommy’s plan for the day (or good for her back!). Yes, we (mainly I) have been battling with daily meltdowns when Luca can’t figure out how to fall sleep (apparently the days of falling asleep in the stroller without tears are in the past…. will they ever come back?). At least he was happy to wear a hat today so that was a nice plus!
And yes – we are ONE WEEK away from Flag Day…. anxiety and excitement are building up!
