It's a gloomy, rainy day. Appropriate, I suppose for a Good Friday. We're under a tornado warning right now- which is always fun with me at work and my children in different places.
I wish they’d given us today off. I’m trying to muster the energy for work. I’m taking a generic Claritin and decongestant. I meant to take a musinex before I left home but forgot. I feel like someone ran over me backed up and did it again. My nose has swollen shut and I don't think you could drive a nail in there with a nail gun. It’s supposed to rain on and off all day today but forecast calls for it to be clear this weekend. I just hope the ground isn't too wet for the egg hunt tomorrow-or we haven't been blown away by a tornado.
We explained Good Friday to WC this morning. It’s difficult to get across today is a solemn occasion when he’s vibrating at the seams in anticipation for more sugar. I meant to do it last night, he was riding his bike in the driveway after we got home yesterday and they had an egg hunt at school. I asked him if he knew why we celebrated Easter. It took a couple of laps around the driveway before he responded, “Because Jesus loves us.”
“Yes, and do you know why else?”
A couple more laps around the driveway. “Because he died on the cross.”
Then something must have happened with CJ to distract me from the conversation. He was pushing his tricycle around the driveway & doing other things. He tried to ride his tricycle last night but doesn't quite have the concept down. He got one foot on a pedal but the other on top of the front wheel guard and pushed- he went forward a smidgen but w/o his other foot on the pedal just stopped. After a while he just chased WC up and down the driveway and picked dandelions in the yard.
I'm pleased to report that CJ, indeed, did get his first professional haircut. My mom said it was touch and go at first- until he discovered a broom. He has a strange fascination with brooms right now. He'll go get ours at home and play with it. From what I was told he sat in the chair holding the broom by the handle and the stylist has to work around that. The first thing I noticed is that the back is crooked. On the positive side she was able to get it shorter all over than I had been.
