Going to the Zoo Zoo Zoo

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Dear Olive,
I returned home from my work trip and, as promised, took you to the zoo. It was your first ever visit, and you absolutely loved it. Are they real ones or pretend ones? You asked for almost every animal. It was a day of firsts. First time you had your hair in a pony tail, first paddle pop. An incredible storm flew in from absolutely nowhere and burst the sky just as were leaving, and despite running, we got caught in the most dramatic weather. I'm all fucking wet you yelled over and over when we got back to the car. That was a first too.

'Are they real or pretend?' - you forget how strange the world must sometimes be for the little people.

'I'm all fucking wet'!!!!!! Love it. Where do they pick up these things? Saskia can't say truck - it is entertaining us no end.

I think everyone has a photo with those ears. But not everyone has a "fucking rain" moment - Olive, you are so so good x

Love it, can't wait to take Eveto the zoo again when she's old enough to understand.

Nell said...

That last picture is brilliant. Olive is a little legend. It's done nothing but fucking rain here too.

I can't for such brilliant firsts with Josephine xx

Olive, you certainly know how to express herself! LOL!

fast times in m√ľnchen. said...

Hoorah for so many firsts! We're getting into ponytails here too. And by we I mean me as Elke rips them out the minute I turn my bloody back.

Haha, nice potty mouth Olive. I love the 'fucking wet' papa and daughter moment in that last pic. Hilarious! xx

Nat said...

Oh this made me chuckle, I'm sure you won't forget these firsts , she's so cute x

Tash said...

Ha! You had me smiling with that last first!

Awesome photos Kellie xx

Lillie said...

ah, fantastic! the point in life is to be able to express yourself right? olive's surely got it all sorted!! :)

Kate said...

Hi Kellie
I have finally had a chance to indulge in reading some of your posts this evening. God I can relate to your experiences as a mother! Miss Olive is so lucky to have this blog for when she is older. It is fucking raining here in Brisbane too - I hear you Olive - fuck off fucking rain :)
Thanks for making me laugh!
It's funny I have been reluctant to write too much about being a mum on my blog. I am a midwife and child health nurse and could rant on and on. May be it could be therapeutic to share some of my stories? Will have a think about it. Either way you have inspired me. Hope you are having a lazy weekend. Kate :)

Laura said...

Almost spat my coffee all over my laptop at the "all fucking wet" comment! Did you manage to keep a straight face at that? Lachie busted out an emphatic "fuck" yesterday at exactly the right moment. And we laughed, a lot. Whoops, so much for not encouraging it!

Love these photos too, just beautiful. x laura

Madeleine said...

Bwhwhahha potty mouthed Olive! Too funny. What a cute family you make.
Thanks for making me laugh hard when I'm just hanging on by a thread!
This Sunday its all over and then I never want to see another fucking balloon again xx
