Wild Life Of A Little Monster

Others are scared of me because of all the fun I have. Considered a vigilante by my Eponine.

A New Little Penguin

The Z-ManHave you seen "March of the Penguins"? Every year, those animals trek something like a gazillion miles across frozen land, to produce one egg, and then to protect that one egg through thick and thin until a little baby penguin is hatched. The work is not finished even then. It is a fascinating documentary. It's out there on dvd. Try to see it if you haven't.

The penguins are monogamous. Well, monogamous for the season. It's likely more like a partnership to produce and care for an egg and eventually a baby penguin. The deal is null and void if anything adverse happens to that egg/baby penguin. The couple goes their separate ways in that scenario, hooking up with a new penguin the following mating season. Sounds like a pretty good deal, huh? I am just kidding.

The Z-Man and his folks took off for China last week. They left Wednesday, with a Friday arrival date. I hope they did not have to experience any of the recent travel woes and extra security. Maybe things will get cleared up and we'll be feeling more secure in the air as they head back next week with their new daughter.

That's right! Their adoption will finally be complete. It's been about a yearlong process. They could very well be greeting their daughter as I type this. Giving her a big hug at this moment. Can you imagine? It is a very exciting time. I know SAK (Z-Man's Mom) will be filled with emotion with tons of tears. She was adopted and feels very blessed to have this opportunity to love this baby girl. I saw the pink-filled, bunny nursery. It's just waiting to greet an adorable little girl!
