Poppy's book of the week right now is Wemberly's Ice Cream Star by Kevin Henkes. The first line goes, "It was a hot day." And as soon as I open to the first page, Poppy says "it was a hot day" in her cute little voice, and then let's me read the rest. So today is a VERY hot and humid day. For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to bring Poppy to the zoo this morning. You know, the zoo with all of the blacktop pavement and not a lot of shade zoo. Not sure why I thought that was a good idea. We find a parking spot, I go to get the stroller and realize that the stroller is not in the car (we took it out because of the camping trip). So I ask Poppy if she can be a big girl and walk the entire time. She says yes. The first thing she sees is the choo-choo's. I tell her we can go on them later, before we leave. The entire time we were there she kept saying "Poppy on choo-choo?" over and over and over. Well, it was sooo hot and we were both sooo tired by the time we were leaving (and she was really good about walking the entire time, but I felt bad making her walk when it was so hot, so I did carry her for a while, which made me extra hot and tired), and when we saw the choo-choo's, I told her they were broken and that we can go on them next time. She said bye-bye to the choo-choo's and then asked if it was time for nigh-nigh yet. And then the whole way home she kept saying "No Poppy on choo-choo?" over and over again. Too stinking cute she is.
If your daughter is wearing a strawberry colored dress, make sure you order a strawberry flavored snow cone. Just a piece of advice.
And check out the ratty looking sticker on her arm that she got at the doctors office LAST WEEK.
