Life Is Just So Daily

Well, I'm 30+1 day.
I still don't feel grown up.

It's rainy today.
And, when this storm hit Dallas, I was actually out in Mesquite at the Chik-fil-A over on Town East Blvd. with Tera, Aubri, Stephanie, Justin, and Gage.

Whoooo....a big storm blew threw, and it was only raining a little bit when we left.

In just a bit I'm going to watch Aubri for a little while. Her Daddy's having surgery today, and this way Tera can go be with him, and then they can get Aubri from my house when they get him home & settled.

Chik-fil-A was eventful. Another little girl hurt Gage's feelings because she didn't want to play with him in the playroom. He was all over her! She was about 3 years old with long curly blonde hair. He was smothering her. Not literally, but you know what I mean. I explained that he should give her a little space to explore & maybe she'd want to play in a little while. Well, they had a little disagreement at the door to the play area. She wanted to shut the door with him inside & her outside so that he'd get away from her, and in the process she smushed his fingers in the door---and just leaned in with her weight in an attempt to keep the door shut. Her mother was on it before I was able to travel the two feet to his rescue. It wasn't pretty, and she refused to say she was sorry. Her poor mom was horrified. But hey---I get it. Trying to get a toddler to do what you want them to do when you want them to do it is not easy. Granted, Gage's feelings & fingers were hurt, but in the end, we were all okay. And her poor mom was just so apologetic & TRIED to get her little one to say she was sorry. That's really all you can do, I suppose.

And now, we're home. Gage is playing trucks in the living room, and we're just waiting for Aubri to arrive.

ouch! Smooshy fingers! That's never any fun, but you're right - getting a toddler to do what you want them to do when you want them to do it is a minor miracle.

Send some of that rain down south! We're parched!

Ouchie, I hope his fingers are okay! Sounds like you have quite the persistant little feller!

Oh, and sorry poor, sweet, adorable Gage got his heartbroken and fingers smushed by a curlyhaired toddler.

Well, I'm 33 and still feel like I'm 13. I don't think that changes much.

Hope Gage gots lots of ice and TLC, as is always prescribed by Dr. Mommy.

Also, I have tagged you for a meme. Because I am a nerd like that (and congrats on the sewing machine!)

Awww, poor Gage's fingers! Sounds like he likes the blondes! :-)

Poor baby! I always feel so badly for kids when another doesn't want to play..especially when it's my own. At least his mom was nice about it; so many parents wouldn't be.

I honestly don't miss those toddler days. Really and truly.

Happy birthday! My 30's were my favorite so far.

Poor little Gage. And poor little girl's mom. Glad he's doing better now and hope your friend's surgery goes well.

Happy 2 day late birthday! I am 40 and I still don't feel like a grown-up all the time.
Sorry Gages feelings got hurt and his fingers.
