Summer vacation is here!!!
This week begins summer break here under the Big Top for Jodie and Daniel which one would think means the busy-ness during the week managing their busy selves would slow down some…you know, no more pencils, no more books, no more homework and all that. Perhaps we can enjoy relaxing, leisurely evenings just enjoying one another’s company and conversation.
But it is only the first week and a busy week already with the promise of even more stuff to do.
First up tonight is the usual teen-aged summer sleep over with your BFF girlfriends…which actually means the usual teen-aged summer stay-up-all-night-eat-junk-food-dance-like-crazy-watch-movies-til-dawn with your BFF girlfriends. Tonight I can gladly say that I am not responsible for any disturbances brought on by those giggling, crazy kids…tonight I can. I can also be assured that I will have a good night’s sleep. This time…next time, perhaps not.
But just as I am ready to enjoy settling down for a relaxing evening with my boys comes a text begging me to please, oh please bring her pillow pet…the turtle pillow pet she has apparently named Martito.
Boys and girls, it is truly love when one drives cross town just to deliver your daughter her pillow pet for a sleepover. Yes, I’m adding that to the list…a very long list of all that I do for you because I love you…the list that includes the enduring 99 days of complete bedrest and wearing an N-95 mask for hours…among other things.
Love you baby girl!
