To be filed under the “isn’t it ironic” files there was just too much growing up happening here under The Big Top today.
I came home from work this morning…YES!…I worked last night which is indeed some kind of record for 2014 where I worked the last three consecutive scheduled nights rather than be cut or placed on call. It’s a good thing. We’ll just ignore the health stuff going on because I’m working on it as best as I can right now and a paycheck is better than no paycheck as that has been a real reality of late. Not that any of this has anything to do with too much growing up going on.
Back on topic, I came home from work this morning to find this handsome young man…
yes, this handsome guy dressed and ready for school eating his breakfast.
“I made my breakfast, Mom. Abby and Jodie are STILL sleeping.“
yes, he did roll his eyes. For the record, it was 7:30 AM and both were soon up because of school and work. Meanwhile, this boy of mine made his own breakfast…a simple breakfast, but a good breakfast to start his day with.
Impressed I was!
This kid is growing up!
And just when I was feeling pretty okay with this, he hands me this flyer at the end of the day.
Yes, yes my sweet little boy is old enough to attend those monthly Middle School Dances sponsored by the Manteca Youth Advisory Commission with security provided by the Manteca Police Department (?!). The ones his sisters would BEG me to let them go to and as I would drop them and their friends off, I swear to god it took all that was in me to not jump out of the mom-car and pull them back in for so many reasons…reasons which were definitely confirmed today when I shared this flyer with them.
Nope, he’s not allowed to. I forbid it.
Well this could be fun if he wanted to go. I mean IF he wanted to go.
“Did you see this, Daniel?”
“Yes. I don’t want to go.”
That’s enough growing up for today.
