I See Dead People

I took the kids to the Telus World of Science today to see the Body Worlds exhibit. We have all been anxious to go see it, Seth especially. Last time it was here I bought the book with all the display pictures in it. Some how it got lost or misplaced so he was excited to get a new one.

On the way into the city Nora had a slight meltdown when I threw away the Tim bits box and wouldn't let her keep it. Aside for that it was smooth sailing.

Now today was my third time seeing the exhibit (since it arrived a month ago) I love it. But I could hardly contain my excitement today because I could not wait to watch the kids faces as they saw it for the first time. Nora is 5 now and I knew she would be a hoot to watch as she saw everything. Seth is always so pensive and has intelligent questions about everything. Ethan hates stuff like this and I knew if anyone would not like it, it would be him, and Gabe, well,  Gabe is Gabe. Easy going and not overly bothered by much. He just goes with the flow.

It was better then I imagined it would be. After a brief pep talk on the way in about what we will see and the appropriate way to act I could hardly contain my own excitement to finally just get in and watch.

Nora was hilarious. She walked around and announced whether each body was male or female. She made faces like this when she saw things she was not impressed with and would point out obvious things like a hand, or foot and say, 'look, a hand" or " look, a foot"

The boys seemed to do well, Seth ,of course, enjoyed it the most.

Seth was over the moon when we replaced his lost book. I think Ethan and Gabe enjoyed the display outside of the museum more then the actual body worlds exhibit.

It was a good day.


I am grateful for little unexpected miracles.

I am grateful for late night phone call/invites from GF's for late night trouble.

I am grateful for a good toothbrush.
