But now that Alex is getting older, we have to consider him into our plans as well. He's no longer the little brother who gets pushed around a stroller while his big sister gets to play.
Last week, I spent the day with my little guy and his friends at the zoo. He got to feed all the animals. He got to decide which direction we took. He got to share his picnic lunch with a friend. All the big brothers and sisters were at camp and these little ones (all under 2) got to have it their way at the zoo.
I felt like I was cheating on Jenna, being that she loves the zoo. And I was surprised that she didn't figure it out herself since she's such a sleuth! But it was so nice to just follow in Alex's lead.
