“I’m going for a swim!”
“Natalie, stop it, you are not!”
We went to the Texas State Aquarium while we were at the beach. Natalie loves it there. Probably too much. She’s always been a daredevil so I imagine if adults weren’t around that she WOULD have gone for a swim.
She grabbed at everything in the area where you could reach in and touch:
“I love this pokey thing!” she cooed.
“And this crab thing!”
Then she showed me a snake:
And ran around the dolphin area.
Then we went down below the dolphin pool and Natalie said she wanted a dolphin as a pet and that there was a dolphin in the Barbie movie she likes.
Basically, she wears me out when I take her out in public. It’s why you’ll sometimes pass frenzied looking mothers with wild hair.
Our kids might be older, but they are still very, very wild indeed.
