We went to the petting zoo for a field trip for the school today. Cute idea, right? Except that when you're looking at those cute little potbellied pigs, you're right next to the sausage making plant. It's a little disturbing!
Good news, though, I didn't have to wipe anyone's nose, only got a little snot on me, and the only slobber that I had to touch was from the longhorn. AND, no one threw up on the bus, much to my little one's chagrin.
As my kids get older, the more grossed out I am by all the bodily fluids these creatures emit. Maybe it's because I'm not knee deep in them anymore, and can really step back and see all of the glory.
