So this morning, we got up, kind of grumbled at each other in passing (morning mumbles) and got ready to leave. As we stepped out the door we were greeted with grey skies and pouring rain/ice/rain/ice.
We drove on slippery roads all the way to the sitter’s house and the moment we arrived….downpour. Of course. I had handily forgotten my umbrella at my office so we had to sort of duck and run for the door with our coats half-over our heads.
“Ooohh my GOD MOM!! THIS IS THE WORST DAY OF MY LIIIIIIIFE!!” Colt WAY over-dramatically screamed at the top of his lungs.
“Hahahahahahahahahaha!” was, literally, all I could say.
“RUN FOR COVER!!!” He instructed as he shoved me out of the way and darted for the front stoop…..leaving me in his dust. Or mud, I guess, since it was pouring.
He didn’t even wait for me, and ran inside the house, slamming the door in my face.
*Knock Knock Knock*
“Ooooh. Hello there Mommy!” he cried. “You look a bit soggy. Were you under the weather?”
(Get it? He thinks “under the weather” means…literally, under the rain clouds)
I giggled and handed him his school bag while his friends came tearing up the stairs to help him celebrate getting there so early. They happily skipped off to play before the bus and I ventured back out into the rain.
Some days (most days) I wish I could live in his beautiful world right next to him. ❤
