A few weeks ago, I was brave enough to venture by myself with them to the Houston Zoo. With the safety net of knowing my daughter was working that day and I could always distract E & L with a short visit to see Shelby, if they started acting up. Mind you E & L are 2 and 3 years old. It's been over 13 year since I have had to cart around toddlers, needless to say I was a little worried that I would end up losing one or traumatizing them with threats if they didn't mind me for their safety.
Thanks Andrea and Carlos for letting me enjoy being a great-aunt!
