Fish in the Water

We bid our guests a fond adieu today and, since we really didn't feel like cleaning the house and doing the weekly grocery shopping, we acquiesced to Kate's repeated requests to "go see the fish in the water" (the Aquarium). Kate loves the aquarium and every time we go she spends the bulk of our visit saying "Wow!" which we think is cute. Though she is a mature 4 months old today, Sarah was her usual stoic self about the spectacle that is the Georgia aquarium. Though she did spit up a bit while we were there and sometimes I think that might be a reaction to too much emotion.

When we left I asked Kate if she had fun. "Yeah!" she said, nodding enthusiastically. "Well, we're going to leave for now, but we'll come back again soon". As we exited the parking garage we heard Kate in the back seat saying "bye bye fish, we'll be back soon!" over and over. I'm a little concerned about what her definition of "soon" is because even though we're members, we only made it there maybe 4 or 5 times all year. Just as I was becoming worried that she was going to obsess about returning to the fish, she switched from talking to the fish to quietly singing "Ring Around the Rosie" and examining her hair and periodically yelling "No [insert name of child in her daycare classroom], don't hit Kate!". Ahhh...there's the little drunk I know and love.
