I DO NOT LIKE CHANGE, NEVER HAVE… I FEEL CONFIDENT SAYING I PROBABLY, MORE THAN LIKELY, NEVER WILL! THESE THINGS ONE KNOWS ABOUT SELF, BUT SOMETIMES, MOST OF THE TIME, THIS TYPE OF THINKING IS NOT CONDUCIVE TO HAVING KIDS OR BREATHING BECAUSE AS WE ALL KNOW, CHANGE IS INEVITABLE.

FACT — BEING SO RELUCTANT TO CHANGE LEAVES ME SET IN MY WAYS AND DEPRIVED AMONG OTHER THINGS, AND UP UNTIL RECENTLY, I HAD NEVER OWNED AN ANIMAL OR SPENT MUCH TIME AROUND THEM. I WAS IN MY 30′S BEFORE I EVER TOUCHED OR AS SOME LIKE TO CALL IT, PET AN ANIMAL, SO IT SHOULD NOT COME AS A SHOCK THAT MY KID IS A LOVER OF ANIMALS.

SHE PREFERS ANIMALS OVER PEOPLE; SHE LOVES DRAWING ANIMALS; SHE PREFERS ANIMAL TOYS, INSTEAD OF BABY DOLLS OR BARBIE DOLLS, BASICALLY ANYTHING ANIMAL RELATED OR IN OTHER WORDS, SHE SIMPLY AND TOTALLY LOVES ANIMALS.

I, HOWEVER, AM A BIRD OF A DIFFERENT FEATHER; I THINK, ANIMALS HAVE COOTIES… NAH, NOT REALLY, SOME PROBABLY DO, BUT THEN AGAIN, SO DO SOME PEOPLE. HA!

JUST DOWN THE STREET AND AROUND THE CORNER FROM WHERE I LIVE, IS A PETTING ZOO SLASH ZOO. AS I MENTIONED, KIDS AND THE REFUSAL OF CHANGE DO NOT BODE WELL, SO MAKING LITTLE PEOPLE HAPPY AND EDUCATING THEM, NOT TO MENTION, ROCKING THE FABULOUS IN THE EYES OF MY CHILDREN AND LOVING THEM MATTERS TO ME, I TAKE THEM PLACES I NORMALLY WOULD NOT TRAVEL; YOU KNOW, SUCH AS… A PETTING ZOO.

ME: “OH MY GOD, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? WHATEVER YOU DO… DO NOT TOUCH THE SHEEP!”

BIG TIME: “MOM, ARE YOU SERIOUS? YOU BROUGHT US TO A PETTING ZOO! DUH!”

ME: “OH. YEAH. I DID DO THAT DIDN’T I.”

“WHAT I BELIEVE IS THAT ALL CLEAR-MINDED PEOPLE SHOULD REMAIN TWO THINGS THROUGHOUT THEIR LIFETIMES: CURIOUS AND TEACHABLE.”
