It’s so great…
inside the daddy boots.
And the best part? While Samuel was helping scrape the windows off, the owner of the car (whom I have never met) came out of his building and stopped dead in his tracks and said, “You’re….cleaning off…my car?” He looked so surprised and I was afraid for a instant that he would be upset. I promised him that we were being really careful but he was completely speechless! He said, “I just don’t know what to say! I mean…thank you!” His name was Andy and we’ve lived right next door to each other for who knows how long and we just met.
It felt really great to do something kind for someone I don’t know! Then we went in and Ben caught on to the enthusiasm and went out to do some shoveling himself:) He cleared two beautiful spots which were taken up immediately.
I really needed a happy afternoon after a frustrating morning. I managed to find a parking spot in the chaos of school drop-off, only to get out with the boys in such a hurry that….you guessed it. I locked my keys in the van.
I was upset b/c I had left E at home with Ben because she was still asleep but I knew she’d wake up any minute ready to eat and we don’t have a spare car key (but we’d better get one!). The school engineers (the new fancy name for janitors) tried to help me with a hangar but it was not working so we ended up calling the police. They were able to unlock it with a nifty Slim Jim tool and I sped off to find a very hungry and overtired little girl at home. She had a grumpy morning but was back on track with a super nap this afternoon.
And I got to spend good time with my boys while she was sleeping so that helped melt away any frustrations;) I love my boys!
