To the Humane Society!

You would think by now that I would fully comprehend that I am a mother. Sometimes, though, a new event happens and it takes you right back to your childhood and how you viewed your mom. It is those moments when I feel so perfectly...motherly. Yesterday I got to go on my first field trip as a mom-escort. I had my little charges listed on an index card and we were off to the Humane Society. It was a fun afternoon, filled with loud, barking dogs and cute little kittens (and a creepy rat!). No tears or throwing up or bathroom accidents -- a very succesful day with a small troop of four- and five-year-olds!

Imagine the voice of Edna from The Incredibles . . . "No Rats! Darling, no rats!"

What is Trinity hugging? Animal, vegetable, or mineral? It looks to be animal, but it also doesn't look to be real. Somewhat reminds me of the vampire rabbit from Monty Python.

My kid is not big into hugging live animals at this point. That is a nice, non-barking, non-biting rabbit statue!

Way to go Trin. And I am so glad you got to go Kristi. It looks like fun. I have a little time before I my first field trip and I will be calling for tips. God bless.
