My Mommy has been busy packing for vacation lately, but she finally let me get online because I want to tell you all about my first trip to the circus. We went last week, but it took me awhile to write this.
Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus is in town and my Mommy got some discount tickets from work. She said it was really hard to find a show time that wasn’t at my naptime or bedtime. I don’t know what she was worried about because I’m never in a rush to go to sleep. I would rather be anywhere than in my crib, but the circus is especially more fun than sleeping.
Daddy bought me some cotton candy as soon as we got to the circus. He was so excited to give me my first cotton candy that he was almost jumping up and down. I didn’t really like it at first because it felt weird on my tongue, but I got over it when I realized that I was eating sugar.
My favorite parts of the show were the motorcycles, the elephants, and the confetti during the finale. The worst part was the tigers because they are really slow and quiet. I also hated the clown that was trying to steal the circus from the ringmaster. He had a really creepy foreign accent and a bad toupee. I also got really freaked out when he brought out a bubble machine. I can’t really explain why I was trembling, but I really didn’t like that clown or his bubbles.
After the show, Daddy told Mommy to let me pick a toy for a souvenir while he went potty. When he came back, he saw me screaming and yanking on a toy motorcycle. I didn’t know that it was anchored to the display so a ranting toddler wouldn’t run off with it. I just knew I needed to have it. My Daddy bought it for me and I’ve been carrying it with me everywhere I go ever since. I sleep with it and I eat with it and I take it to school. I really love my motorcycle.
Mommy and Daddy tell me that their favorite memory of my first circus is when I told them for the first time, “I happy.”
I think they will take me there again. I loved it!
