One Week Till Thanksgiving Rush!
Time management people will tell you to plan, plan, plan and do things ahead of time for Thanksgiving. So I've got a plan and I'm doing something or two ahead of time. You ask, what is it you are doing? I'm putting up my Christmas tree in the living room and other sundry Christmas decorations. This year I'm using a shorter tree and placing it on a table to keep Jack Aidan from climbing the tree. (He's now in climbing mode. Look out!)
The weather here in Northern Virginia yesterday helped put me in the Christmas mood. We had several snow showers with great big flakes so when Jack Aidan came for lunch in his hooded sweatshirt Jack took him outside to see the big fat flakes. Later we had another type of shower but I'll tell you about that in a minute.
First, I want to tell you how Bob Ryan, the weatherman on our local NBC affiliate here in the Washington metro area describes snows in his five types scale:
4. Call Off School.
5. Call It A Blizzard!
Our snow shower yesterday was a #1. Just something to talk about. Nothing stuck to anything.
Now for the other little shower that we had yesterday. After I posted MY TUESDAY WORLD blog late yesterday Jack and Jack Aidan and Jenn went to our favorite restaurant, Alibi Catering, for continental catering takeout. So I set the table and got the high chair ready and poured the drinks for everyone. Jack Aidan has his drink in his sippy cup. Well, lunch came and we all ate and Jack Aidan provided lots of laughs and giggles at the lunch table. A baby trying to eat rice all by themselves is a stitch to watch. We had a little rice shower right in the baby high chair!
Then I looked down and spotted a little round puddle on the floor below the high chair. I looked at Jennifer and wondered out loud you don't suppose Jack Aidan........ Then Jennifer interrupted and said no way, he has on a diaper, his onesie and those very heavy pants. Jack Aidan must have just turned his sippy cup upside down. So we proceeded to finish lunch with more laughs and giggles provided for our amusement by Jack Aidan.
It was when Jennifer pulled Jack Aidan out of the high chair that we all exclaimed: "Uh--ohh!" That's when we discovered that Jack Aidan had rained upon our parade. He was soaked thru his heavy pants, onesie and diaper and that little puddle on the floor was not apple juice!
