For most people, Friday is a happy day. The work week is ending and they get to relax, enjoy free time, maybe even sleep late. For me, Friday means that I have two (sometimes three) days without the glorious little yellow school bus.
This Friday began at 2:00AM. I heard the tale-tell SLAM! of the bedroom door opening down the hall, followed by the BAM BAM BAM of Ben’s pounding footsteps as he and Zeus The Big Dumb Dog ran down the hall to my bedroom, ending with earthquake shuddering of my bed as they both jumped up. Sigh…
I didn’t go to sleep until around 11:00PM last night because older daughter requested a ride to work. She works the overnight shift and usually walks the mile to work but it had been raining here and there all day and she didn’t want to walk in the rain. So, anyway, I had only been asleep maybe three hours when I got bounced. Luckily, King Ben was content with his tablet and only woke me from my doze every 45 minutes or so.
“Grandma, open my juice”
“Open my juice please” (even when I’m cross-eyed manners are important)
“Open my juice please”
So it went until 6:30AM when it was time to give him his meds and start getting him ready for school. I love that glorious little yellow school bus!
Today is day three in a row that I made it to WordPress. I’m going to try for four, five, six… but since older daughter works tonight and Saturday night, so she’ll be sleeping until 1:00PM or 1:30PM both Saturday and Sunday mornings/afternoons, I’ll be on solo King Ben duty and may not have the brain power (or battery power if he takes my phone) to check in with my fabulous WP Dudes until Monday.
If I don’t make it until Monday, let me wish all the moms a Happy Mother’s Day on Sunday! Whether you have human, fur, feather or any other kind of babies, you are their mama and you deserve recognition for the love and care you give them!
Okay, random wandering post over.😘💌
