We love the zoo (and I ain’t lion)*

I am totally nailing this mothering thing. Well, around once a month on average; that’s not a bad success rate.  And April’s success story? We had another really great day out yesterday at the zoo. The particular highlight for me (apart from feeding the giraffes and some awesome birds, although …
