Lord Have Mercy! I had a trying day with my 5 year old. He was really testing me. I am pretty sure I won but wow, I am too old to have a 5 year old!
Sammy was home today so I phoned him and asked him to mow the lawn. I got home and the front yard was mowed. I was so pleased that he was listening to me. I went looking for him. I didn’t see him. I didn’t see the lawn mower either.
I wasn’t worried. Max went hunting for him in all the usual places as I brought the groceries in. Still no Sammy or lawnmower. Then Max went to look for him in all the unusual places. No Sammy. I was just about to panic. Well actually I was rehearsing my call to Sanj to tell him that Sammy and our mower was kidnapped or stolen.
Max thought he heard a mower in the wood/ forest. He went to look. He took a little too long. I begin to worry. I started to head into the woods, when the chicken in me decided to grab the phone, not sure what I would find.
Then I see Sammy and Max running out of the woods.
I was so relieved I wanted to smack him. Where is the lawnmower?
Since I could see that he was a little hyper, I knew that the mower was in a place I didn’t want it to be.
It was in the back woods, stuck.
Did I mention he was home today?
Here is how he spent part of the day… picture taking.
Did I mention I love this kid?
