Today was the boys' first day back to school.
As I drove away after dropping them off I started thinking about all the kids sharing what they got for Christmas and the fun ways they had spent their vacation.
And I wondered what Brian would say if he could.
I think it would go something like this,
"For my Christmas vacation I wanted to have a marathon movie watching day every single day but my mom just wouldn't allow it. However I did become a bit attached to a new movie, Peter Pan, and have acquired some great scripts from it. My mom just LOVES when I yell "I CAN FLY!" and I jump off any surface I can find onto her back. She makes a funny snapping sound when I do it. My other favorite script is "FIRE AWAY!!".
One morning when I was taking a bath I decided to do a science expirement. I only had five minutes of unsupervised time but I managed to dump out three bottles of lotion, a bottle of hair gel, a bottle of conditioner, another of shampoo, and spray a lot of the hairspray right into my tub. It smelled great! My Mom wasn't pleased....maybe, she didn't like the smell?
Yesterday I really wanted to look pretty so I opened up my Mom's body shimmer. I dropped it by accident and now our WHOLE livingroom is sparkling! It wasn't my intended outcome, but I like it!
Oh, I also broke my second pair of $150 therapeutic listening headphones. Same way. I propped them up and then stepped on top of them and snap. Again, for some reason, Mom wasn't too happy.
I had a great Christmas. I got THREE new Thomas engines!!! Yes, I opened a dozen other presents but I forgot what those were. Can you believe I got THREE NEW THOMAS ENGINES?!?!?!
I got to sleep in my Mom's bed a few nights during vacation and I just love when she lets me do that. I love to sleep sprawled right across my Mom and moving every five minutes. Mom complains but she's always smiling and continues to snuggle with me so I don't think she really minds.
So those were my highlights. Bet you can't beat that!!"
