This morning, my husband tried to get my boys to the car to take one to school and one to daycare. They each had a backpack to manage. It has been raining forever, day after day after day, and was raining this morning too. My grass is very high - no doubt in violation of the HOA rules. I'm sure there's a letter in the mail for me. I regret using the fertilizer - it really did make the grass grow.
My boys were wearing hoodies and shoes not really meant to get wet, but they walked through the tall, wet grass anyway. My husband gave the two-year-old an oversized, black umbrella. The-two-year old would not give it up. So my-ten-year old squatted under it with him to walk through the tall, wet grass to the car.
My ten-year-old is so sweet and has amazing character. I hope my two-year-old is watching him closely.
