Single Parenting

I am a single parent this weekend. Kirk is in AZ for an aunt's funeral, with his brother and two sisters. They took off this morning around 4:30 and I had a message that they got in safely, but haven't talked to him tonight, I am sure he is busy. So, for a 3 day spurt, it's just me and the girls.

So, I wonder, what will I do. Well, we went to the zoo today. It was a lot of fun, a bit on the chilly side since I forgot our jackets, but not too bad (I felt like a bad mom forgetting the jackets, but there were lots of other kids there without jackets too. It was in the high 60's, but the wind cooled it down a bit). We also had our cousin Olivia, since her mom is in AZ also, and I think Tessa and her had a good time playing today.

At the zoo, they have a new baby elephant, totally cute, just like Dumbo! And a precious little baby giraffe, it was just beautiful. The tiger cubs where almost full sized tigers by this time in the year, so that was a pinch disappointing, looking for cubs and only seeing large tigers, but everything grows up eventually.

We went with my friend Becky and her munchkins, which I think worked out great, because they kinda moved in a pack, so it was a little easier to keep track of them. I think Olivia has a new boyfriend, because she was talking about Ben on the way home, saying how funny he was and that she liked him! So funny. Thanks again Becky for taking us with you, the day turned out great!

The only downfall of the day was me dropping Ashley's binky down the giraffes ditch where they spray the poop into. And it was the only one I took with me, made for a bit of a noisy drive home :(

Now, for the rest of the weekend, I don't know what we will do. Hm. All I know is that tonight, I plan on getting a great nights rest in a big bed all by myself!!! :)
