Over Spring Break I ventured out with the kids to the zoo. A couple of the kids have never been to the zoo, for the others its been years. I was very proud of myself flying solo with all four kids. I must say we had a blast and can not wait to go again. The kids loved the slides and took many turns going down them.
They also loved pretending to be turtles and petting goats in the kids zoo. We even got a peak at the elephants.But I think we had the most fun racing the giraffe back and forth in his exhibit.
2. I learned how much that band-aid would cost!
First off let me say that, my dear Mikey hates, I mean hates with a passion band-aids.
So my story begins- Monday morning I heard Mikey call out what I thought was "out". I called for him to come to me in the other room. As he got closer to me I realized he was saying "Ouie". When I looked up his arm was covered in blood. We quickly ran to the bathroom and ran water over it and I could see that he had a cut a good chunk of skin off his thumb. The poor thing was in so much pain he started saying-" Mommy band-aid on it- MAKE IT BETTER!" but it didn't matter what I did it kept bleeding. After consulting with our neighbor who is a nurse in training I headed of to our local emergency care center. Of course by then the bleeding had slowed. In the ended all they had to do was wash the cut and put a band-aid on. Now Mikey has no problems with band-aids.
So, what did it take to get Mikey to wear a band-aid? Oh, just a big 'ol cut on the finger. And, how much did that band-aid cost us? Just $140.00!

Tyco can't believe that he has had over 5 years with his creature. He is amazed how the time has flown. One thing he knows for sure is that he loves his creature and couldn't imagine life without him!
