I Love My Fellow Mommas

Today we went to the Brookfield Zoo. It was a big zoo, we didn't have enough energy to see every exhibit. Some of it was just ok, but I was blown away by the monkey house. Especially one room that had two very special monkeys... Mommy monkeys. This baby was born April 3rd.

Dave and I absolutely adored this momma who was nursing her little one.

I find a special joy in seeing animal mommies. Their mothering abilities are completely natural and never seem to falter. They don't second guess themselves or guilt trip themselves unnecessarily. Of course, I doubt their toddlers are nearly the handful that human toddlers are!
