On Mother’s Day, my best friends and I played a game to see how well we knew our moms (read my post, Mother’s Day 2012). I learned that my mom’s favorite animal is apparently the penguin. Ever since she saw penguins on our family’s trip to Auckland, New Zealand, in July 2001, she thinks penguins are very cute, especially the way they wobble around. After learning this, I have been checking out movies from the library that have anything to do with penguins. So far we have watched March of the Penguins, Happy Feet, and Madagascar. My mom isn’t actually that crazy about penguins, but they’re growing on me!
