Last year when we visited the NC aquarium, we were 2 inches of glass away from a terrifying alligator that wanted to eat my baby. I’m not kidding. When Calvin flashed his barely one year old baby thighs, I swear that gator perked right up and in his best Cajun voice was all, pass me that there baby, honey I’m starvin’!
This week, we took a less daunting trip to the local science museum in downtown Raleigh. It was my friend Paige’s idea and it actually saved Monday. I hate the boas at the museum but I have to see them every time. I let them stare into my soul like they know me. It’s dangerous.
I was stroller free so I hoisted my 30lb toddler onto my hip for a better view only this time Boa number one, aka crusher picked his head up and started revving up for a snack of baby thigh whilst sticking his forked tongue out as far as it would reach in Calvin’s direction.
What can I say? He’s delicious.
No he’s not about to be eaten. He just wanted my iPhone.
We narrowly escaped unharmed but I was still traumatized by the UNCAGED hissing cockroach during story time. Thankfully, Oscar had the presence of mind to politely decline the offer to “pet” it. If I have accomplished ONE thing in my 4.5 years of motherhood, I can die happy knowing it was that WE DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES EVER TOUCH A ROACH.
The boys had a blast though and I am really excited to see them getting into the museum’s educational qualities more. Oscar was really interested in learning about what we saw and Calvin was happy to not be lunch.
