I’ve always believed if your life is full of drama, you must like drama.
Well, last night my life was full of DRAMA, and I don’t like it!
The kids, Samuel’s friend Lauren, and I met Abby and Henry for some Mexican food in North Little Rock. Abby was bringing Henry to us so we could keep him for a few days. He’s been excited about coming to Juju’s all week.
When they walked in the restaurant he hid behind Abby, and cried. After a while he got better and enjoyed himself. Then it got to be time to leave, and things quickly went downhill. I decided it would be best if we moved everything over to my car before we all walked outside, less drama to have happen that way.
Oh, if only!
I sent David and Daniel outside to do the moving of luggage. Nothing can go wrong. Except that when we walk out of the restaurant Henry starts crying and causing a scene ( it’s Friday night and very crowded outside the restaurant) and David tells me the keys are locked in the van.
So, Samuel calls AAA while I take Henry away his mom. I felt like a DHS worker! I get Henry to my van where he proceeds to throw up his red fruit punch and blue sucker all over the ground. Right in front of Samuel’s friend! And not just once. Oh no! Three times. It was a glorious time.
I took Henry’s shirt off of him, because gross. And we all (except Abby who was no longer in the picture but on the phone with me) walk next door to Academy Sports. And Henry is shirtless. Oh, we’re something! And let’s not forget all the people standing outside the restaurant watching all of this unfold! I’m sure we were talked about on Facebook and Twitter. It was quite the scene.
We get in the store, find a shirt for Henry and try to settle him down. The poor guy is sad, and sobbing. Finally I promised him I would give him back to his Mother in a few days and all was well. I mean, he quit crying and began enjoying himself. It was like a miracle!
We came home, got ready for bed and Henry slept until 7 this morning. So far, so good.
I’m hoping for no drama today. Please!
