The kids have been “highly encouraged” to play outside this afternoon. They have come in the backdoor a million times for one reason or another. Bathroom breaks, hunger fixes, tattletelling, and reports of their boo boos. I start listening less and less and encouraging more and more for them to get back outside. Cord was inside washing his hands off after he had accidentally fallen head first into the sandbox. On his way out, he stood by the door with his hand on the door handle and he was half inside and half outside. He said,”Mom… I have to tell you…” He pauses and thinks for a second and then starts to turn to go out and I hear him mumble,” I’ll tell you at bedtime tonight so that you won’t be mad.” Hmmmm… I better check that out.
Hmmm.. I better check on that November 6, 2011
