Eeek! A giraffe ate my baby!
MJ has been totally in love with dogs and cats. So much so that we've even started bribing her to go places by saying "There might be a kitty there!" which works magically but is probably a parenting misdeed. So I really thought she'd love the zoo. It turns out the giraffes, which we could feed, were the only thing worthy of a smile.
On the up side, we learned that the whole monkeys-love-bananas concept is true! When we surreptitiously gave her a banana (the signs clearly said no outside food or drink) the monkeys were totally rapt. They kept motioning for her to give them some of her banana and made little "come hither" sounds. But, like the toddler she is, she wasn't willing to share that banana with anyone, even a monkey.
