Here in Canada, it’s zed. However, being the American I am, I’ve taught the kids to say zee.
It’s the final letter in the challenge. I made it through the April challenge without missing a single letter. Granted, I did miss two days which I made up for the following day. But I did it. The last month has been dedicated to Crash and Bang and life with these two creatures. In a sense, and it’s said nearly as often as “OMG“. This place is a zoo! That’s right, today I’m writing about the zoo our house is at times. I know this makes DW and I the zoo keepers. But, just as we feed the animals, we also play with them.
Sometimes we get a little rambunctious. Tickle fights. Wrestling. Monkeybacks (what we give instead of piggybacks). Jumping on beds. Splashing in the tub. Chase – sometimes the animals are dressed, sometimes not (the keepers are always dressed). We have Nerf gun fights. We climb trees and scare pigeons. I imagine if the ceiling fans could hold their weight, they’d be entertained for eternity.
Z is for also for Zany which you don’t have be in order to have kids, but it sure helps.
Lastly, Z is also for zipper. Not the kind that go zip zip zip to open and close your jacket or jeans. I’ve written about it before in “With An Open Heart“. This is the zipper Crash received when he was just 5 days old when he had open heart surgery. We are so thankful for that zipper. It gave our Crash the life he has today.
