Taking a Circus to the Circus...

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

We took my kids (Karenna and Jude) plus my cousin's two girls to the circus.  The older girl liked the animal acts.  The younger one liked the female acrobats.  There was also a man who pretended the real acrobats were not there and clowned around on the trampoline until he finally did some fancy flips.  Here are my observations:

  1. Once Jude is more of a handful than the three girls combined (and one of them is still in diapers).
  2. For example, he took off his shirt outside in the rain and ran around in the parking lot.
  3. Things you have to say at dinner with kids 5 & under include: "We don't show each other our underpants at the dinner table."
  4. Karenna is getting good at tricking people.
  5. Leave it to her dad to teach her this.  When they went to pick up a pizza and the girls wanted soda, he told Karenna's cousin. "No we have water at home. We get it out of the toilet."  Karenna, totally serious, said, "Yeah, we do."
  6. She has equally mastered detecting when someone is tricking her.  "That guy on the trampoline was really an acrobat," she told us later.
