Headed Back to Normal

Hey Y'all!  Hope everybody's doing good today!  I know I am---finally!
I was forced to come back to work today.  It was so hard to get out of the bed, take a shower, get Robbie ready, and be in the cafeteria for "breakfast duty" by 7:30 this morning.  I think I would rather have had somebody pour molten lead into my nostrils while I was hanging upside down from a beehive....UGH!
A friend of mine posted on Facebook yesterday that our school system has 68 school days until spring break.  Since we missed 5 last week, we have to make them up and it'll be a long way to spring break..."Billy Bob---bring the bucket of molten lead RIGHT BACK over here THIS INSTANT!"

Ahhh....it is nice though to be back in school.  I have surely missed my lovies and am looking forward to bearing down and getting busy.
Last night, Robbie was in my office/craft room with me and had me rollin' laughing!  He likes to take big spools of thread (like the kinds you would use in an embroidery machine like I have---but never have plugged it up---thank you nice lady from Craigslist!), and play The Biggest Loser with them.  He was creating all kinds of challenges for his team and was having such a fun time in his own little world, until I heard him yell, "Oh My GOD!"  Now...just so y'all know...we don't talk like this at The Doublewide.  I heard a preacher say that the moment you utter God's name, you have His undivided attention.  So....thus began my investigation about where he heard that, why he said it...etc.  I told him that we only say things like that in case we need God's attention and have something to say to Him.  Robbie looked at me with those ice blue eyes, and as serious as he could be said, "Mama...I needed God to help me count these scores for the teams.  He knew I was talking to Him and He ain't mad--It's ok Mama....Me and God...WE GOT THIS!"

As I almost fell outta my computer chair laughing, I smiled and I thanked God, yet one more time, for sending Robbie to us through adoption.  He never ceases to amaze me with his imagination, his wit, his intelligence and the amount of knowledge his brain exhibits!
I am already beginning to pray for his upcoming kindergarten teacher---bless her heart---she's gonna have her hands FULL!
Y'all have a good day today--make somebody smile!!

How funny and yet what a wonderful teaching opportunity. I agree, I think we should respect how we use the name of our God. I am thankful that you as Mother are interested in teaching your son to respect our Lord. Hats off to you! Sorry, you had to go back to school but it had to happen. Blessings and take care!

I KNOW you hated heading back to school today...and so early no less!

Thought that was precious what Robbie said....priceless!
