Yesterday I took Benny and his friend to the zoo. They played in a warm class, doing tie-dye, touring the tropics exhibit and learning about VENOM!
For two hours...
This is what I did...
LOLOL! My friend, the boy's mom, gave me a way out of taking them because it's been such a sleepless week for us, but the crazy person in me said, "Oh, thank you! But don't worry - we're going no matter what! I planned for Dest to be tended so I can take the boys. Benny needs me too..."
And no matter what I meant!
Immediately after dropping the boys off at their class, I almost fell asleep on a toilet in the men's bathroom - don't ask! ;-)
It was so cold and uncomfortable, my bones hurt, I was so tired, etc., but I kinda felt like I was doing something naughty, and THAT, my friends, was cooooool! No one was there - I pretended we snuck into the zoo......
That, on top of listening to these two seven year old boys chat away about things that'd alert the FBI, really made a miserable time FUN and worth it!
It was a little bit of 'normal', if I dare say.
