Manatees and Monkey Children
swim with the manatees" as had been planned. B got quite ill (he always does when traveling with his family, because they are dysfunctional and stress him out), and since he was the enthusiastic one about this possibility, they gave it a miss in favor of touring Francis Ford Coppola's resort (obviously not B's choice, hard to think of something that would interest him less). I told him we will just have to go back, together!
R likes the manatees too, but mostly just enjoys climbing/exploring whatever she can reach. A few days ago she called to me, "Mommy, look at me!" and I turned to find her sitting on top of our kitchen island (she had opened the cabinet beneath and used the drawers inside as a kind of ladder). One reason I like getting out of the house: I feel like the zoo is a safer environment!
