tuesdays we have nada. no school, no grandmas, no ballet class. zip zilch zero.
which means we usually end up at the aquarium.
fun fact. last week at the aquarium lex got herself lost.
she was having a day. one of those days that comes around every once in a while where lex’s ears plug and she loses the ability to listen.
she ran away, around a corner, and proceeded to cry “i don’t know where my mommy is!” for the minute it took for me to find her. it happened to be the longest minute of both of our lives. i found her in front of the jellyfish crying to a grandma who informed me that i should’ve stayed hidden a little longer to really teach her a lesson.
turns out a minute was long enough. because lex was all about hand holding and less about running this time ’round. and proclaimed “i didn’t get lost!” to anyone who would listen on our way out.
flash forward to post-nap when lex watched the garbage truck from our window wearing a bra.
“hey lex. where’s uncle shaun?”
“he’s in india! can we take the elevator and visit him?”
thankfully no elevators had to get involved and after a 5 week stint in india my brother got home safe, sound, and appreciating the little things. lex was over the moon to see him, and he was over the moon to see toilet-paper, showers, and a lack of dangerous elephants running wild. he left our house with a belly full of pizza and cookies (lex’s request) and his arms full of sparkle painted artwork compliments of lex.
and now its hump day.
