Avery and I went with the Malahy family last night to the zoo for Member's Night. We had such a fun time. The Butterfly Exhibit opened this weekend and Avery loved seeing the butterflies. There was a live band and all of the kiddie rides were free. Usually, kids aren't allowed to swim in the replica of the Nile River, but on Member's Night they allow it. Kids were everywhere. It was pretty crazy, but really fun.
We got home way past Avery's bedtime, but since it was so hot and sticky last night, she just had to have a bath. I think that I've mentioned a few times how much Avery loves her baths. At one point during her bath, she stood up in the tub and started doing a little dance. After laughing at my silly naked goof-ball, I had her sit right back down in the tub. A few minutes later, she became really relaxed... so relaxed that she relieved herself in the tub. Unfortunately - and I'll try to say this as tactfully as possible - it wasn't pee...
I think I yelled, "oh no!" and quickly pulled her out of the contaminated tub. Sadly, this experience with my sweet little girl was NOT my first. She only seems to do it when David isn't around to help me with clean-up duties. Let me just tell you how hard it was not to puke while cleaning that yucky tub last night. Thanks, Aves!
The irony of the situation is that I wouldn't let Avery wade around in the "Nile" at the zoo that night because I thought that it was nasty...all those kiddos swimming around in each other's... well... you know. Oh, well!
