Lions, and Tigers, and Oowies, Oh My!

We had our first official boo boo at home today. Never have I been as scared as I was when hearing that sickening thud of a head colliding with a wall. The instant gush of blood was enough to do me in. But, I needed to pull from the deep down depths of my mommy strength and be the solid rock my little toddler needed.

Thankfully, her split chin was able to be fixed with a strong type of glue at urgent care and should be all we need for it to heal properly. The next 48-72 hours will be key in keeping her from splitting it open again, which is hard to do with a very active toddler!

The rest of us are now all sporting band-aids as well to make Brooklyn feel a little better. She has repeated the story about 10 times and gone over to the same spot, reenacting the incident with her stuffed animals.

I think she’s going to be just fine.


The whole weekend wasn’t all bad. Yesterday, we wanted to do something fun and get out. We talked it over with Brooklyn about our options {aquarium, zoo, safari, etc} and she said she wanted to see the elephants. So, Fuji Safari it was!

I had gone with the girls last summer before Brooklyn turned two, and she really liked it then. Now that she’s a little older, she absolutely loved it!

(All pictures of the wild animals had to be taken with our windows up. I apologize for any added glare.)

We had a wonderful time. Brooklyn won’t stop talking about the fun she had! She got a little souvenir stuffed deer that she takes with her everywhere. I’d say all in all, it was an okay weekend, even with the excitement of today.

What fun things did you do this weekend?
