Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle

We had a fun day taking the kids to the Museum of Natural History in Paris, which included a children’s gallery with interactive exhibits and displays. It’s funny and sweet how much the boy idolizes his sister. He repeats everything she says and copies everything she does. He takes all his cues from her. If we ask him whether he wants to wear his hat, he cranes his head to see whether his sister is wearing her hat. He wants to be a fairy princess when he grows up (although occasionally he’ll have an independent thought, like when he says he wants to be a garbageman). At the museum, we told the kids they could each take a picture in front of any animal they chose, any at all. The girl chose the giraffes. What did the boy choose? Giraffes, of course.
