These pictures make me laugh. Last weekend we went to the zoo and I thought Addi would absolutely love it. But she honestly kind of acted like she could have cared less. About just about all of it. This was her face the majority of the time on the carousal ride. Like "no thanks mom. Not impressed." She was seriously more entertained with the geese, than anything else in the zoo. I pictured having some super cute pictures of her waving on the carousal or oohing and ahhing at the animals. Not hot, sweaty and bored.
Sometimes I struggle with the unpredictability of kids, especially toddlers. You can plan all you want and have no idea how it is going to go. At first I felt annoyed and really disappointed. But instead of feeling that this day was a very tiring, waster of time, I'm laughing and remembering that if we went next weekend if could be a completely different experience. And this is all part of motherhood and I'm thankful for this girl even when she's crabby and thoroughly not impressed.
