I finally did it! After 4 years of having 4 kids going in 4 different directions, I did it. I left a child somewhere. Tonight was actually pretty calm, I've always pictured this happening when I'm going crazy with a 100 things but nope, no excuse!
The 3 little ones went to a VBS this week and tonight was their final night complete with slip-n-slide & dinner. Leah had a party at a friend's house so I actually ended up with 2 full hours to myself after making the drop-off rounds. I treated myself to a Jimmy John's Italian Nightclub sandwich and headed over to HealthSouth to visit with my mom. Dad filled me in today-they are releasing her to Villa Springs Nursing Home next Tuesday. Villa Spring is supposed to have an excellent physical therapy program so I'm happy this is working out for her. After an hour with my mom and getting her settled in bed for the evening I left and with time on my hands stopped at Micheal's for some crafting items. I'm craving crafts worse than chocolate these days. There will be a new post tomorrow! Well, Micheal's has a time warp machine instead of automatic doors so I lost track of time and showed up to pick the little ones up from VBS at 9:02 after every other parent had left. We stopped on the way home for gas & to drop library books off, then I had them change into their pajamas and we took off to see fireworks across from the Florence Freedom stadium. They were spectacular! As soon as the fireworks ended we headed to pick up Leah at her friend's house. No sooner than she gets in the car than Jon declares, "I need to go to the bathroom". So we pull into UDF in Hebron where Leah & Jon both go in. I, of course, end up lost in the world of my phone, checking in on FourSquare & Facebook. So Leah comes out and I put my phone down, back up, then hear, "MOOOOOooooommm!!!!" And Jon is hopping off the sidewalk after bursting through the doors of UDF. At his yell the 3 other people in the parking lot look up, realize what is going on and are laughing so hard we can hear them in the van with the windows up. I think I broke his heart. After many apologies, we made it home for the night where he promptly crashed by the computer where he wouldn't be out of my sight- he knows me so well.
