It’s so unfair that I don’t have a picture of this!!! Last week Princess A went to the petting zoo in Central Park. We go there a ton. Anyway, she loves tortoises. She also loves watermelon especially when she is teething!!!

So it was feeding time at the petting zoo and they put some watermelon out for the tortoise. Not a good idea when my daughter is around. She ran, grabbed the watermelon, and ate it before the tortoise had even taken his first step.

I tried hard not to laugh but then everyone else there did. I felt bad for the tortoise though. It’s unfair to put his food out where fast toddlers can get it.

Any crazy stories about your kid at petting zoos?

Stay Glamorous,

    That is hilarious! No funny stories here. Katie got bit by a Goat once and she and I were chased by a Canada goose once. I am noticing a theme here, Katie is involved in all animal attacks. She is even Guinness’ preferred chew toy. I wonder if she bathes in gravey? LOL!

    Poor tortoise, but hey…… I love it that she did that. You will have some great stories for her when she gets older. I don’t recall taking kids to petting zoos much, but I do remember one time, but its not so much funny as ewwwwwwwwwwwww, my oldest, now 18, at time….. probably was 9 ish, he got licked by a giraffe. They have a wicked tongue.
