SJ on the Move

Morning at the Zoo

This morning we wanted to take SJ somewhere fun. This is the first weekend in a while when we aren't going to be consumed by housing searches (not because we found something, but rather because we are taking a break from the intense search.) Anyway, we decided to take Sydney to the Zoo. The Franklin Park Zoo has a butterfly exhibit which just opened a few weeks ago. It was very nice. SJ also got to pet the sheep and goats. She was really excited to ride the carousel which she opted to do instead of having us purchase her some M&Ms (they have been a zoo specific treat for her in the past.) Of course, after the happy mintues on the carousel she still asked for the M&Ms and when we tried to remind her of the deal she made a few moments earlier she started her massive meltdown. She then proceeded to scream, "I don't want to go home!" all the way to the car, resisted getting in her car seat and within 2 mintues later was asleep. Ahh...silence! When we got home we tried to keep her asleep, but she woke up screaming, "I don't want to go home!" all the way into the house. Needless to say she did not continue her nap and we are glad no one from Child Services stopped to interview us.

Right after we moved here, 18 month old Caleb started yelling "Help! Help!" as we would carry him out of a store during a temper tantrum. I was always afraid someone would think we were kidnapping him. I'm not sure if I'm happy that no one ever said anything. After all, what if someone had tried to kidnap him?
