It was to be a full day. I had a meeting scheduled at 10am, and I had to make sure Tatum was busy during my Zoom virtual conference. Originally, I had tried to sign her up for Sportball, but they were full. School was apparently not open today as well.
Early this morning, I found out that the school was open, so I asked Tatum if I could have her go for just the morning. She adamantly said, “No thank you!”
So, the morning then carried on as usual. I gave her the surprise I do every Friday morning after a night of class.
She wanted to know his name, so she checked the key.
I was about to read his name when she said, “I’ll do it!!”
B U Z Z BUZZ!
She sounded it out herself! WOW!! My little reader. So proud of her.
Then, as usual, we took out the snuggle bug (Coti). This was not usual.
Right in front of our driveway. Lying dead (thank you Jesus!), he freaked us out!!!
What else did we have in store for the morning?
Well, since she wasn’t going to school, we headed to the gym early so I could be home for my conference call. We stopped at Einstein’s and breakfasted together. Then, she said it.
“Mommy, do you know why I did not want to go to school today? Two reasons. Number one: we had plans today and I wanted to be with you.
Number two: I wanted to be with you all day
Number two again: I love you.”
So, now we are home and I’m getting ready to log on.
She hung with the snuggles while I worked.
Later, we are to head to the rink for a skating lesson. We both can’t wait! Stay tuned.
