Baby Kate could also have a fascination with bees due to the appearance of a hungry bee in her Peekaboo Baby book. The famished little bee sticks out his tongue for food while the baby in the book eats with a spoon and says, "Yummy." Did you know that Katie also likes yummies?
Regardless, during a recent trip to the NC Zoo, we toured their Honeybee Garden. Both of the children were enthralled by the giant bee and hive, live bee exhibit, and honey-tasting table. Katie, in particular, ran in circles shouting, "Big Bee, big bee."
At one point, we were playing peed-a-boo around this giant bee hive. Katie would run in, squeal as I hollered, "Where's Katie?," and peek through a tiny window in the side. She then popped back around the corner as I feigned surprise. In the midst of our fun, as I was singing,
a snotty-looking woman glanced at me and said, "She's right behind you, I think." Why thank you, snotty-looking woman. I had no idea where my not-quite-two-year-old daughter was. I'm that irresponsible, as to let her completely disappear in a busy attraction. Furthermore, I'm going to crouch behind a large fake beehive and sing about it. Yep, that makes complete sense. Any fool could see I was really in need of assistance there, lady. You are a genius.
So anyway, up pops Katie and we go about our day, singing and playing and watching out for bees.
