Oh Thursday….really? 40 is the best you can do today? And with rain? It isn’t winter yet Mother Nature. I am not ready for socks and layers and coats. Especially coats. But this morning I made myself an Earl Grey London Fog and warmed the cockles of my heart. I have no idea where the cockles are but I’m feeling very Wuthering Heights today.
They ( No, I don’t know who they is) say that man plans and God laughs. That was yesterday. The minute I finished work and was looking forward to reading and doing some yoga the phone rang. I looked and saw it was my son. Long story short, Papa got to pick up Corbin from school. I love how excited he gets when he sees his Papa at the gate. The pure joy on their faces as Corbin throws himself into his Papa’s arms shouting to everyone, “Look! It’s my Papa!” Although now we are so well know that if another child sees us first they all start yelling, “Look it’s Corbin’s Papa/Gramma”.
He grabbed my tablet as soon as he deposited his belongings on the floor. Got right down to playing Temple Run 2. Until….I looked at his daily report. Mr. Perfect got in trouble for laughing and playing in the bathroom. Now I’m conflicted because I am at the school a lot and no adult accompanies any of the Kindergarten classes to the bathroom. They just go on their own and I don’t like that. Seriously if you find 3 of your besties in the bathroom it’s something to shout about! So sorry but this goes in the non punishment category. He knows he made the wrong choice and it’s Kindergarten for cripes sakes.
Had to take him shopping at the market where he met another little girl and they proceeded to want everything in the store. He got socks. And crackers. Miss Charli had a wonderful time at the Philharmonic and told us all about the bass. She goes to a special class after school that is a more in-depth look at critical thinking, science and math so she had a full day yesterday and was tired.
I am trying the Butternut Squash Soup With Pear again today. I think the pears we found just weren’t flavorful enough, so I’m trying some different ones. I swear I could eat this soup every day.
Stay warm out there and be kind. Lord knows we need some kindness right now.
