A Really Good Day

at the zoo

He spent a lot of time with this Tamarin, who is missing an eye.

A couple weeks ago the Kiddo had a Really Good Day.  Not that every day isn’t wonderful, but this day was full of wonder, fun & new experiences that he thoroughly enjoyed.   We went to the zoo and then we went to Grammy & Papa’s and swam in the pool.  Let me tell you, this kid is a water baby.

We’re Going to the Zoo:
We’re going to the zoo
We’re going to the zoo!
We’ll look at some animals
And they might look at you!

There are Monkey at the zoo
There are monkeys at the zoo
They might swing around
And toss some poo at you!  
(before anyone gets upset the orangutang baby did toss poo)

There are turtles at the zoo
There are turtles at the zoo
They might crawl around
And eat some salad too!

There are rhinos at the zoo
There are rhinos at the zoo
They might snuff and snort
And roll in the mud.

There are elephants at the zoo
There are elephants at the zoo
They might eat some hay
And trumpet hello to you!

There are goats at the zoo
There are goats at the zoo
They might take a nap
Or say Naaaaa! to you!

There are polar bears at the zoo
There are polar bears at the zoo
They might swim around
In their pool.

Anyway, the song can go on like that depending on what animals the kid saw, what they did, etc.  Feel free to be silly, my kid though it was hilarious. To the best of my knowledge I came up with the words, but if I’ve accidentally co-opted something, please forgive the Mommy Brain.

Water Baby

After that we went to my in-laws house and it was hot enough that they all decided to go in the pool.  He went too.  He had a blast.  The only issue we’ll have after this is keeping him OUT of the pool when the Big Kids are making it inhospitable for little guys.
