My morning started off smoothly. Everyone was home, everyone was going to church to hear Alex play in the band, everyone was happy.
Until…we actually got to church. Then a certain second grader’s behavior took a nosedive. Sigh. Kind of set the tone for the day.
So when daddy left to drive Katie back to collge, I decided to make my escape as well.
All the way to the grocery store. Yippee.
I left the girls with Alex and his girlfriend and drove as slowly as I could to the store.
Got to relish those moments, you know.
I was a good shopper and did not veer from my list this time. I even used coupons. Yay me!
But as I was checking out, I realized it was pouring rain. I knew it was coming. I had just hoped to beat it home.
Loaded the van, returned the cart, and drove my wet self home.
And I got home to this……
I kept watching and saw more….
Cheap entertainment which didn’t require any fire (which usually happens with Alex).
And it put this certain child
in a better mood.
At least until she was told to help clean up….
