Meerkats! I want one!
When I saw this Canadian Linx I thought "ooh Maizey would LOVE to pet it!" When Josh bolted with Harper because he was worried the wild cat would attack, I thought "is it weird that my first reaction was 'ooh kitty!" and not 'RUN!' ?" I guess I'm still working on sharpening up my protective instincts.
Visiting the Red Wolf.
Beth and Josh. They look like movie stars I'm paparazzing in this photo.
Look how she looks at her daddy.
Look at the teeth on this shark!
Mama and Maize.
Tapir. One of God's more unfortunate looking animals. I think he must of made the Tapir on, like, the first or second day--before he had practice.
Getting ready to start our tour.
My silly girl getting ready for her shower.
This is moments after going under for the first time. I'd been dreading this moment and then it happened and it was no big deal. It turns out that, unlike daddy, Maizey doesn't have holes in her eardrum :-)
She had such a fun time with auntie. This is the only picture I have that proves she has top teeth. She's up to 7 teeth now (some are just starting to peek out).

Okay. Probably most of you won't read that article--it's 6 pages long, but it's thought provoking (I can't believe I just said that about something so ridiculous). I know that it's so easy to target people in the spotlight and judge them really unfairly and without considering their feelings or their reality, but this article struck a chord. Maybe it's not all so fun and sweet and charming. Which sucks, because now watching this show is not a better, less ridiculous option than the Real Housewives of New York. They're now equally ridiculous and equally fake. Although, at least RHNY doesn't claim to be something it's not, except none of them are actually housewives. Whatever. I can't believe how feeble this is making me sound. Listen, I work really hard in school and at being a mom, sometimes you just need an escape. My escape is watching a woman who has a lot less time and a lot more children than me--it just makes me feel a little better about my situation.
Why am I fascinated by this garbajsh (that's French BTW)????

Here are some of the photos that my ultra-talented sister took today. I took some too at the pool, but I'm too lazy to post them right now, so you'll have to wait!

I'll update this week with photos and stories from our adventure this weekend. I have tons of homework and finals next week, but I'll try to find some time!

So it's not really whole day in the life, just a quick glimpse at what it's like to be with Maizey for awhile. I pretty much just follow her around. When I leave her for a second, I come back to find her knee-deep in mischief.
Here are some photos of me following her around with the camera today.
What do you do with paper? Eat it of course!
We're learning to close the toilet lid around here, since the toilet is Maizey's favorite place to be. She bangs on it like a drum, but if lid is up she LOVES to play in the water. What's worse is we're of the "if it's yellow, let it mellow" school of thought--well we used to be before all of this...
Playing the toilet drum.

I am working like a mad woman to try and get an A on an exam I have tomorrow. School has been crazy lately and I can't wait for my break at the end of this month. I REALLY need it! Okay, on that note, I gotta go study!
Future husband and wife. Look at Jack's grin, these two are going to have beautiful children (I know they're a little young to be discussing this, but I thought I'd better start pressuring Maizey to have kids now, since it seems to be the thing that mothers do to their daughters).
