I always get a smile when kids think they know it all and then it turns out they don’t.
Yesterday, my daughter informed me that Anderson had wakened at 4:30 AM and had not been able to get back to sleep. This was around 10 when I went over for our home school lessons. He was full of energy and said he wasn’t tired. So we did our lessons and finished up and I came home…with Spencer who wanted to “go to Nana’s house.” I was supposed to babysit so my daughter could go to a job interview mid afternoon. I also had to go to the bank so I figured I would wait til I babysat them and I would take them with me to the bank. Off we went. They wanted McDonald’s so they could play at the playland but I told them we had to go to the bank first, before it closed.
Halfway to the bank, I am talking to them but there are no answers. I turned to look and they were both asleep, even Anderson who kept saying he was not sleepy. I took care of the bank business and drove them to McDonald’s as promised. Neither of them would wake up. So I drove toward home and stopped at the last McDonald’s with a playland before getting home. They wouldn’t wake up. I sat in the parking lot for about fifteen minutes. No luck so I took them home. Their mom came out to the car and they both woke up. Of course, they refused to get out of the car because I had promised McDonald’s. They said they would be fine and awake if I took them so off we went, back to McDonald’s.
I am ordering our food before they go in to the playland to play. They are too quiet behind me. I look back and I see this:
I had to smile!
