Griffin's View of May 29, 2012
There was a bunch of excitement going on in my groupa today. The nanny got the scissors out and cut on my hair! I really don't like hair cuts and I put up a huge fight! Then they gave me a quick bath and I got really excited because I love the bath tub, but it didn't last long enough. They dried me off really quick and stuffed me inside a pair of overalls. THEN they sprayed smelly stuff on me! Seriously, what is going on?! I wish they would just tell me why they are dressing me up like this.
Before I knew it, the nanny carried me to the door, opened it, and there stood the papa!!! He came back for me! I had to blink a few times because I didn't really believe that he was there. He had a huge smile on his face and he grabbed me into his arms and gave me a big squeeze! I was so happy on the inside that I thought I was going to explode, but I managed to keep it inside, because I didn't want to do anything to ruin this moment. Was he about to take me to the playground?
I heard the word "machina" and I got really excited! I love machinas. The papa said that I was about to go for a ride in the car! I guess that's the other word for machina. I could hardly keep myself calm! I wanted to shriek with excitement!
The papa plopped me down on his lap on the back seat of a little black car, right next to the window! Oh my goodness, is this really happening?! I wonder where we are going? The papa was talking a lot to the other people in the car but he would tell me that I was doing a good job, in my ear, every now and then. Seems like they were talking about a lot of serious stuff. He kept squeezing me so tight because I really wanted to crawl up into the front seat and drive! I even reached up and pulled the driver's hair! It didn't help, though. I thought he would stop the car and let me drive. Nope. Instead, I just banged on the windows and tried to jump up and down on the papa's lap. He was having a hard time keeping me still and he started to sweat! When the car came to a stop, they took me inside a little building and tried to take a picture of me. Nope, no way. I really don't want my picture taken so I put up a huge fight. The ladies started sweating, too! Finally, they said that they got a good one but I don't see how because I was shrieking and wiggling all over the place!
We had a few more stops to make and when we stopped at the orphanage I just wanted to cry. I didn't want this adventure to be over. I'm so confused. I really don't know what's going on. The papa said that he was going to take me home but here I am back at the orphanage. Oh well, I'm just glad he came back to see me. The lady took me from the papa and they drove away. I watched until the nanny took me inside. I really hope that I can see him again tomorrow! I'm just so, so, so glad that he came back!!!
