Yesterday, I was
I was beginning to get a bit scared and The Son was heading into panic mode. Sometimes he's too smart for his own good, my kid. I decided to close all the windows because the rain was coming down fast and I asked him if he'd feel better heading down to our finished basement to watch TV there. He said he would. I sent him down with the dog and quickly ran upstairs to close the windows. When I headed down to the basement, I found The Son curled up on the floor behind the couch and the chair, shuddering in fright. I was feeling bad for the poor kid. We decided to watch "Ellen" and he snuggled up next to me. I assured him that he was safe and the only reason I suggested heading down to the basement was so that he would feel more comfortable. The tornado warning was over at 4:00 PM, we watched the weather and he heard that there was no more tornado warning and as far as I know, none touched down. (Phew!) He was feeling so much better and was ready to head out to Toys R Us. Problem was, now it was thundering and lighteninging. (Is that a word?) We live in the country so we practically have to drive to another state to get to a Toys R Us and by "practically", I mean we do. I hate driving in the rain let alone the thunder, etc. so we didn't go. I'm a bad mom. Sorry Son. We're heading there soon today and I'm guessing all will be alright with his world again.
After TRU I am heading to the Y to work out. I'm still having trouble getting my summer schedule down now that The Son isn't in preschool. I know it will work itself out one way or another. The good thing is, I'm still getting there, just not feeling very organized about it. Swimming lessons tonight... as long as there's no more thunder storms... that remains to be seen of course. Have a great day everyone. We're off to buy a new Bakugaan toy.
