On the last day of their Christmas vacation, I took Tom and Alice to the Georgia Aquarium.
I try to take them once a year, and then the rest of the year they ask to go back. So it’s tradition!
This year was the first time that I thought to myself afterwards, “Well that was insanely easy.”
Moms, I know we don’t want our kids to grow up — but when it comes to Aquarium-going, taking a 6-year-old and a 4-year-old is where it’s at.
NO STROLLERS! NO CRYING! NO CONSTANT SNACK HARASSMENT! NO DIAPER CHANGES! NO WORRYING YOUR KID IS GOING TO GET STUCK IN THAT TUBE IN THE RIVER AREA AND YOU’LL HAVE TO CROUCH DOWN AND WIGGLE IN THERE TO SAVE THEM IN FRONT OF THE VIEWING WINDOW WHERE THE OTHER MOMS ARE WATCHING YOU!
The kids had THE. BEST. time. It was awesome. They loved everything like they’d never seen it before. And we just had the most wonderful day. It was one for the memory books. It was one of those days that felt like…the perfect day.
We had so much fun, that I was really curious what their favorite part of the day was.
Me: “What was your favorite thing we saw or did today?”
Tom: “I liked the part where we could pet the fish!”
Alice: “Me too! I loved that part!!”
Me: “Did y’all actually touch the fish?”
Tom and Alice: “No!”
Happy Aquarium Day!
Here she is…not touching this shark.
We got splashed with dolphin water during the show, which was their second favorite thing.
