On Saturday I was running late as usual. (Say it with me: I KNOW! Who would’ve thought?) As I put on my makeup and tracked how much time I had to get ready for the baby shower that started at 10 am, Big G asked me to play Uno with him.
Note: Uno is one of Big G’s current obsessions. Let’s just say If I woke up tomorrow morning and someone told me Uno had been outlawed, I wouldn’t cry.
After I told him I was (as per usual) late for my intended destination, he found a new target.
“Dad, will you play Uno with me?”
“Not right now, Big G,” Car replied, walking to the next room.
As he walked past me, I couldn’t help myself. I burst into song.
“And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon, Little boy blue and the man in the moon…”
Car turned to glare at me. “I HAVE TO USE THE BATHROOM AND I HAVEN’T HAD BREAKFAST.”
He continued on to the bathroom and I collapsed in giggles.
