He's almost too big for my hip. Sniff sniff. Erik has been asking me lately, "Mom, how many scents does your phone have?!" I said, "What are you talking about? I think you're asking how much battery I have left?" And then I understood! We always mention the percentage of battery power we have left. Casey will say, "Hey Mom, you only have 7 percent left on your phone!" Erik heard the cent part-- not the percent. So damn cute!
Tuesday evening was a rare night. I got home from work and didn't have to run off to baseball or a school meeting or event. I helped Casey with homework, did some laundry and cleaned up. Pedar made dinner and before dinner we walked Curly. Almost felt like a weekend-- but lately our weekends have felt crazy.
Erik asked tonight if he had school tomorrow. I said," Yep. Three more wake-up's and then it's the weekend and no school." He said,"But when do we not have school?" I get it. This kid wants a break, for more than just two mornings on the weekend. I do too, buddy. It's coming. We will take some time off from school and work soon. This crazy pace of work, school, baseball, chores and events is making me a little cuckoo!
Out of the mouth of babes comes such wisdom. He just wants to snuggle more and slow down. I want that too!
Casey drew the picture and his friend wrote the story.
