Whatever virus or germ that has infested my children must like it here ... because it won't leave. Now understand, I was under the impression that it finally departed, but if that was indeed true, then it has returned. Obviously it likes it here. I should be so honored.
This leads me to tell you that Drew is home from school. Again. Today. After a short nap, by him ... not me, we decided to turn the television on. As I was scrolling through the channels, Molly yelled to stop when Thomas The Train appeared. I thought it was rather odd, as she has NEVER watched this show before, but thought, "What the heck? A show is a show", and I left it there. I figured it would give me enough quiet and uninterrupted time to continue cleaning up lunch dishes. There is nothing worse than to be cleaning up a meal and hear a child, who just ate, ask you for a snack. I can't stand that, though it still happens often. But that's a whole other post. I don't want to get off topic ... that would be so unlike me.
After the kitchen was once again sparkling, I retreated back into my comfy, warm chair in the living room. Drew was on the floor in front of me, wrapped up in my favorite quilt. A few minutes later, he slowly rolled to the side and sat up ... facing me. Using the most monotone voice I've ever heard, he said ...
"Spending 10 years in the worst jail on earth and then being run over by the worlds heaviest monster truck ... would be less painful than watching this."
And I'm afraid I have to agree.
