My child brings me back to my own childhood at times! Sometimes the scary times…
I was terrified of slugs as a kid. If there was a slug in my path, I would make my mom turn us around and take a different route rather than cross the slugs path!
Now that I am a mom, I try to be mindful not to pass on fears to my son. I almost had an epic fail at SEA Lab. My son, Matteo and I were at one of the touch-tanks and I touched the anemone and immediately had squeamish reaction. Of course my son didn’t want to touch the gooey thing after that! Luckily with some help of one of the workers we showed Matteo that the anemone wasn’t icky.
Note to self to: let my son choose what is icky and not chose for him!
P.S. SEA Lab is such a hidden gem! Very easy to miss. Great aquarium for little ones.
It a couple blocks away from the Artist Robert Wyland’s mural The Whaling Wall (this is one of his largest murals)
