I'm pretty sure that these kids make me batty. Don't get me wrong, they both have really good moments and I wouldn't trade them for the world, but most days the overwhelming moments overshadow the good ones.
One day last week I got to get out of the house by myself to go to one of my favorite places. Imagine my shock when I was walking up to the building and there was an actual bat, hanging on to the side, taking a little nap. I took it as a sign from God that it wasn't my imagination, I WAS going batty and that trip out by myself was just what I needed.
Isn't he cute? (I don't know why I assume it's a boy.) Unlike the big, scary, leathery bats at the zoo, this one was little and furry. I knew better than to touch him, but I was so bummed to see him when I didn't have the kids with me. They would have been so excited, especially since we just studied bats and took that program about them at the park. So I took his picture.
I love fun unexpected moments!
