I hate them. I know, it’s sweet to see all the babies, toddlers and children playing with the baby animals – the bunnies, baby goats, ducklings – but I hate that they’re on display, handled so carelessly and often. Those baby animals aren’t enjoying it. It’s worse than a circus (don’t get me started on the circus), or the zoo (oooh and let’s not talk about the zoo!!).
Nonetheless, we partook in the petting zoo at our church. I know, I know. And of course I was there to snap the obligatory pictures. I KNOW!! My kids can’t not play with them if they’re near by. No kid can.
They fell in love with the bunnies. Even my eldest who is not the cute cuddly animal type. I love that about her. I mean, yes, she loves small cute animals, but if it’s between a cute cuddly animal and a new pair of boots or hair product, she’ll opt for either of the latter. That’s just how she’s wired. Love her.
Am I making too much of it? Anyone else feel the same way about the circus and zoo?
