The house was a mess (how many posts could start like that?)
And I just didn't feel like cleaning. (imagine that)
Summer is waning. And so is our families energy.
But we know come January will we wish we'd spent an evening cleaning the house or outside playing while we can? Canadians have so much pressure during summer, two short months to cram in all our summertime dreams.
Tonight's outing (ie avoidance of cleaning) turned out really fun.
As I was chucking our two year old in the stroller (the one who had whined non-stop all day...pleeeeeeease tell me it's a phase!) Benny said, "Can I take my plane?" I gave him my best "I'm not your mother" face, and said "Sure."
What a great idea.
Ben has a love for anything remote control.
Love. Fascination. Obsession.
A few facts about RC toys:
1) they break
2)there is always a more expensive one to buy
3)they also break too
4) but they're always fun while they last
The first purchase Benny and I
There's been various helicopters and cars since, which he's really good about limited to birthdays or Christmas time.
A few months ago Fed-ex dropped off a box. I opened it and called Ben.
"Um, so dear...your uh plane came today..."
I think I could hear the fear in the silence. "Oh yaaaa...I uh...forgot to tell you about that?"
I laughed, and he realized I was just teasing him. Poor guys works hard.
Now he tries to convince me there for McKye...
