As most of you regular readers know, I have been greatly preoccupied with the sorry slab job done on the 6th and getting it repaired. That preoccupation has stifled my creative abilities and made this blog pretty unappealing. For that I apologize and please let me redeem myself with a cute story and a contest?
Termite called from Disney to tell me a great story about his big brother, Miah, our son with Down’s Syndrome.
The kids are at Disney this week, right? Well, they were were in a space capsule on a ride called “Space Mission”, which Termite said was so very convincing. A video started playing which made things more life-like, and as the simulator started vibrating and it felt like they were just about to blast off, Miah shouted:
“NO! NO! STOP! I CAN’T GO! WHAT ABOUT TI DU????!!!”
At that point, Dotter had to calm him down and make him understand it was only a video and a ride and that they truly were not going to another planet and leaving his precious puppy behind. Once off, he had no desire to go to space again!
Is that not priceless? (Notice he wasn’t worried about Mom of Dad–just his little dog!)
I would like to know your favorite children’s picture book. Everyone who responds will be entered in a random drawing to win a personalized, signed copy of Before the Saltwater Came.
I have to go supervise the pouring of concrete now and hopefully come back with great photos for tomorrow!
