Last Friday, I got to go to the zoo with Perma-Baby's class. I teach Spanish during that time, but Campbell Clansman agreed to cover my class. (Don't worry...I gave them a test and advised them to limit their Spanish with CC to words like tortilla and taco. )
We had a great day together...we walked and walked, then rested.
My main job was to watch these 3 girls, especially the one on the left. She's no trouble at all. But Turks are not used to seeing Africans. PB's teacher asked me to keep her close by, lest she be photographed, pinched, and kissed all day. I thoroughly enjoyed my job. Everytime she became the center of attention, I tucked her under my arm and pretended she was my baby. No, I didn't mind that at all. (Incidentally, the one on the right has learned if she lets them pinch her cheeks, she sometimes gets candy out of the deal.)
PB was all dressed for the day..shorts and a t-shirt, comfy shoes, sunscreen, and a hat...until she leaned back on the toilet just before we left for school and in the hat went! Miss Middler came to the rescue with one of her hats.
