The Boss danced around the front yard among the firelies while the family cheered Go Max, Go Max, Go-Go-Go Max!
If they stopped he would pause for a moment and then cheer for himself Go Max, Go Max, Go-Go-Go Max! Kicking and dancing around in the twilight.
Yesterday I was barely able to crawl out of bed.
Yesterday TOTT stayed home from work to take care of The Boss while I slept.
Yesterday I heard The Boss’ little voice echoing down the hall Have it Daddy! Day Tripper, Daddy! I thought, how kick ass is my kid that he not only knows what Day Tripper is but tries to play it on the guitar and sing it?
Yesterday I let The Boss have ‘zipped’ cream and saltines for lunch because I was too weak to fight him while TOTT was on a conference call.The Boss ate broccoli and pasta for dinner so some nutrition was had. Thank God.
Yesterday I was wracked with jealousy that it wasn’t me playing and dancing with The Boss. But I just couldn’t.
After I dinner I went back to bed, dizzily drifting in and out baffling at the sexual tension between Agent Booth and Bones (no, I don’t know what happens I just started watching- I’m late to the party) when POP! Power outage. I remember power outages being magical times when I was little, my mom and I reading by candlelight and listening to a battery powered radio.
I heard The Boss say is dark as the family trecked out to the front yard and I drug myself out into the warm evening air and shivered on the porch watching The Boss dance around with the fireflies as the last light of day slipped away. I’m pretty sure his first real power outage was magical as well. We really should let him dance outside after dinner more often, even without a power outage.
Go Max, Go Max, Go-Go-Go Max!!
What do you and your family do during a black out?
