Bummer Dude

The weatherman called for snow...
And here's how it all went down...
4:30 AM--Wake to Lil R coughing his head off and Big Daddy taking a shower. Got Lil R some cough syrup and remembered that Big Daddy had to report to work at 6:00 AM in case the roads were bad.
4:40 AM--Checked the TV to see if school was called off after peeping out the back door to see a mild (and I DO mean MILD) dusting. School was "still on" so I decided to hop back in the bed.
5:00--Kissed Big Daddy goodbye. Checked TV again--no such luck.
6:30 AM--Awoke to the phone ringing....Answered it, half asleep to hear our principal saying that school would be in session today! DERN DERN DERN!!
Got up and began getting ready. Got Lil R ready, had groceries (because we cooked today in Home Ec! yipee), had Lil R and BOTH of his blue blankies, his sippie cup, my purse, keys and cell phone all in one round. Set alarm and proceed to get everything and everyone out the door in 2 minutes.
Phone rings...I decide not to answer it, Lil R's hand slipped out of mine as he tumbled down 4 back steps! As I'm praying and he's falling, he finally hits the ground. He then looks up at me and says, "Mama! That was fun---let's do it again!"
Thank you Lord for keeping my baby safe, but next time--please please Lord hook us up with some snow. It was terribly painful to put the evaporated milk, the sugar, and the vanilla flavoring back up into the pantry.
Until next time my sweet sweet snowcream....

Yeah... I think I'll take the snow to getting up a thousand times to only have to go to work anyway. Next time, I'll be praying for YOU to get the snow. Love ya, girl.
