How Our Kids Are Like Wildlife, in 6 Words

It’s Friday and I’m putting the phone away (except for pictures) and taking my wild animals to the zoo!

We all know that life with kids can often feel like zoo keeping, or safari hunting, or wild boar wrestling, or deep sea diving, or bird watching, or just a regular walk with wildlife. They’re cute, they’re cuddly, they’re bursting with energy, they’re wild, and they’re silly.

Eli Pacheco over at Coach Daddy is awesome and put together a 6 word post from a variety of bloggers describing our kids as wildlife in 6 words. Since I’m taking my monkeys to the zoo today and struggling to find enough time in the day to get my own new posts published, I thought I’d share this masterpiece I was lucky enough to contribute to.

Go check out his blog and this animalistic post, and share with me how your kids are like wildlife!!!

Happy Friday everyone!

  1. Thanks sasha!!! Eli is pretty great, and the zoo was a blast! I learned while we were there that even more animalistic than our children, are parents. I had a fun encounter with a snarky mama, and observed other wildlife behavior from parents, even more so than the kids. It was a proud day for me though as the boys didn’t resemble any of the animals! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ppeople watching is as entertaining as the animals though! never a dull moment I tell ya! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


  2. Hope you had a blast at the zoo – I’m always shocked (and I shouldn’t be) at the similarities between what’s inside and outside the cages.

    Thanks for the shoutout! Glad you participated in this one …


    • It is amazingly similar! I was blown away by the fact that many of the kids were more well behaved than the parents on this trip! Whoa! Talk about wildlife!!! But we did have a great time! It’s one of our favorite places and the weather was beautiful! Thanks for including me in this one and if my brain cells will start working, hopefully I can be in the next one! ๐Ÿ™‚


        • They were just wild in general…running all over the place barking orders at their kids, many looking miserable. But then there was one in particular that clearly missed feeding time earlier in the day and was on the prowl for fresh prey.
          I was in the family bathroom with my 3 boys changing clothes and diapers after finishing at the water park. I thought the door was locked But i guess not. She walked in on me with my son sprawled eagle on the changing table so I did the reflex, “whoops, excuse us!” And closed the door.
          Well after the 15 mins it took me to change us all passed, she was still waiting outside with a scowl. I carried on and said, “sorry about that” and we went about our business. (Although why I apologized to her twice for the fact that she walked in on us is beyond me). Well we had left the water play area and were looking at the owls. She and her son come up behind us and I again smiled and she busts out with, “we were just looking for a sock.” I said, “ok well I’m sorry, he was naked and I was changing 3 kids.” She rudely continues with, ” well I tried to tell you and you just slammed the door in my face,…so that was pretty awesome of you!” It wasn’t even worth a reply…there was lots of eye rolling and ride body language/tone. I just said ok and told the boys we were moving onto the bears, although clearly there was one out on the lose already. Seeking me out to complain and be rude is ridiculous…over a sock!? Excuse me but YOU walked in on US!!! Anyway…. no harm no fowl but it was just ridiculous.
          People have a scary resemblance to wildlife sometimes!


        • I think the bears might be have been offended at that display. It reminds me of the monkeys on Madagascar, in the zoo, who spoke like distinguished gentlemen, while the zoo-goers were simple and pushy!
