There’s a place not too far from here. A place where the manatees go. So we went to see the manatees. And it was thrilling.
Ok…Ok…You got me. It wasn’t thrilling. You see…the thing about Manatees…they don’t really do much. Little Man didn’t care. He loved just sitting on the dock, watching the manatees.
Baby Chaos was just glad to be out of the house. He gets stir crazy if we’re home longer than 5 minutes.
Little Miss. HA. Little Miss was unimpressed.
“So….when are they going to do something besides just sit there?”
“That’s a great questions Little Miss. I’m glad you asked…because they’re not. That’s it. That’s what they do.”
“So this is it. They’re not going to be doing anything else?”
“No. But they’re manatees. You can now say you got to see manatees sitting there.”
“Thanks Mom.” <— said in her very sarcastic tone.
Yup. 100% unimpressed.
But that’s OK. 2 out of 3 kids were happy that day and that’s winning to me!
