After our morning adventure, our family went on a date. We went to a Chinese buffet and then to the fish store. We had a great lunch. Even Kian enjoyed himself. He's in a phase where he says "no" to everything, but he decided that getting to choose his own food was very exciting. Kian didn't eat much, but he sure had fun. It was a good lunch, especially since everyone was happy. We headed over to the fish store right after our meal. This store carries all sorts of fish and reptiles, including an anaconda, a rainbow boa, an eel, and a stingray. Did we ever have fun! Kian learned a new word "camouflage" and bonded with turtles and snakes. He put his face up to the glass and kissed the snakes. Above the noise of the busy store, a little voice could be heard saying "hewwo! hewwo!" It was too cute!
Life with Aris continues to be challenging. Bedtime tends to be the worst right now, but first thing in the morning is also trying. So in the midst of this, I'm clinging to my silvers of joy, like flower fairies and little boys that say camouflage. :)
