You know what’s fun? Being three is fun. You get to play in the splash pad and have hamburgers and fries for lunch. I learned both the word butt and butthole in Korean from Bert.
Vickey introduced me to cajun flavored fries with malt vinegar (at my most favorite burger place – Five Guys). She says it’s like fish and chips. I said I liked it, but when pressed by Vickey, I admitted that I wouldn’t order them again – I’d have the plain ones and I’d stick with ketchup.
Vickey also introduced me to this new thing – a way to make 100 water balloons in 1 minute. Each of these balloons have little straws all attached simultaneously to a garden hose connector and when they are full, they pop off the straw and seal with a tiny rubber band.
We got to assemble a Playmobile ambulance which was harder than I remembered when I assembled little toys a decade ago for Vince. I think it was harder because my eyesight is terrible-er and I didn’t have my glasses within arms length. Lots of squinting to apply the small stickers in a straight line.
Came complete with an injured “Jeremy”. Poor guy, luckily it was only a flesh wound and just needed IV fluid, which the ambulance had. I miss my boys – they don’t often leave for a week together. I have a slight, irrational fear that they won’t come back and then I’d miss them and then I’d have to do the rest of my life without them. That would be hard.
