I bought myself flowers today as you can see. We have a deal where you can buy 3 bouquets for $21. I like the deep burgundy and the pop of orange and white. Brighten up my day.
This morning I woke up just before 6 a.m. I was debating about going back to sleep for another hour or so when I realized my bestie bestie bestie since grade 6 had messaged.
Propped up on my elbow, squinting at the phone as I am attempting to create a coherent text message, by now the idea is squirming into my brain that maybe I should get up. Then…..
Smack! Smack! Smack!
Right in the head.
Smack! Smack! Smack!
Right in the side of my face.
Lucky was on the pillow. Thomas was sitting next to me. They were having a hitting fight. Only it was me they were hitting!
I got up and left them to it.
I am obviously feeling better this morning.
I was sitting on the floor in the living room nagging at T to get ready for school. We had been discussing whether or not I have ever rolled my eyes at him and I insisted that I never had. That he would know if I rolled my eyes at him…..he would feel it. This elicited an eye roll from his nibs at my protestations of innocence.
He wandered off into the bathroom and I heard him in the dryer. Backstory yesterday morning at 8 a.m. he asks me why his clothes are not in the dryer. I tell him because he never told me about them. T was insistent that he had the night before. Just as I insisted that I never heard him. Stalemate as we throw his clothes in the dryer for half hour.
Me: What are you doing?
T: Getting my pants.
Me: Didn’t you wear pants yesterday?
Yes that came out of my mouth. The minute, nay the second I heard it, I began to hiccup. The hiccup turned into a giggle. The giggle became laughter.
T: What did you say?
Me: I am not repeating it! It was so dumb.
T (opening bathroom door): Tell me.
Me (crying): I asked ‘did you not wear pants yesterday’.
T: Yes mom I did.
He goes into his room and I hear:
Me: What did you say?
T: Thomasssssssssss. I was talking to him.
Me (screech laughing): I thought you called me a dumbass!
Laughter is a great way to start the day.
