So I’m noticing that I can’t go to bed without posting. It’s becoming a habit, my ritual, and I’m loving it. I’m also noticing that my journal is falling behind. That is heart breaking to me b/c for all I write about in here, the juicy journal stuff is getting forgotten. I need to make a mental note to keep up with my journal. I mean, there is nothing in this world like hand writing in your journal. Am I right?
Today was City Museum day and it was great. Seriously, if you are in St. Louis or ever stopping by and only have two hours to SEE St. Louis, forget the arch, the stadium and anything else. Just head straight for the City Museum. It is hands down the coolest place on earth. I want to BE the person that designs it! I want to crawl in his/her brain and take a little tiny chunk of creativity from them, b/c trust me, he/she has tons to share! Most of my photos didn’t turn out because it is really dark in there, like you’re crawling around in places you can’t see kind of dark. It’s the kind of dark that is totally cool to a kid in grade school and totally scary to a toddler. Anyway, I will post my favorites, just because what is my life without photos?
And can I just ask, are we really here? Are we really the parents of a temper tantrum throwing, embarass us with screaming, take her in the other room to discipline, adorable little girl? I mean seriously. Just last week we had the sweetest cherub of a child, and now she’s become Damian. If she gets one ounce of over-tired she loses it! I think the new theme of my photos will be C holding our screaming kid. Because that is the last photo of today, just like after the park the other day. I think at some point soon it will be a photo of a screaming kid and cursing husband, as he was not as thrilled today with me ignoring the tantum to take the photo. When that camera is in my hand I sometimes forget I have other responsibilities other than documenting! Anyway, here are some pics from our day…enjoy!
This is a converted log…now it’s a tunnel for climbing pleasure, that is unless you are an adult male! Tight squeeze!
Bailey fit much better!
There is a new exhibt there, expensive, but worth it. It’s an aquarium. This is the slide that goes THROUGH the shark tank! Notice the octopus at the bottom? Too cool.
Super cool mirrored tunnel, so excited this photo turned out as well as it did b/c there was NO light.
Me and Bails clapping for the circus to start (we never saw it b/c the tantrums started and never stopped, so we left soon after.
Peeking at the fish one last time before we leave…
And let the tantrum begin!
And for all those doubters that our sweet girl would EVER throw a tantum (GoGo), here is an example of the full-on, throw yourself on the floor tanturm. Hey, at least I got a photo of the awesome mosaic floor!
Terrilbe Two’s? I say BRING IT ON!
