Friday at suppertime, I found myself at the table with four hungry kids eating Taco Time (we had already visited The Modern, Tim Hortons, McDonalds and Subway all in one day. That's what happens when Dad is golfing and Mom is exhausted). It was our last day of summer holidays when I was manning the fort alone and my strength was dwindling. With a giant bite of beef burrito in my mouth and a fistful of mexi fries, I looked at Ellie who was completely naked at the table and the other three kids were fighting. The kids asked me, "Mom are you laughing or crying?" Even I wasn't sure. All I know was that I was trying my hardest not to spit beef burrito out my nose, there were tears coming out of my eyes and I was also laughing. Yes the end of Summer Holidays Mental Breakdown.
It had been a lonnnnnng day. Pat and I had a fantastic time the night before accompanying our neighbors to the Lyric Improv Night where we drank wine and laughed and laughed. It was worth it but 6:00 came very early as we woke for the traditional birthday breakfast at The Modern Restaurant!
Earlier...... (7 am to be exact) We arrived at the Modern before the doors even opened which gave us time to phone Magic 97 for the birthday of the day. It's just not the same when Ryan's not at work but we gave K-Rok a shout out over the airwaves just the same.
Here is the eager birthday boy. Future Innovation Credit Union employee. All he needs is a briefcase and then he would be Alex P Keaton. 8 years old and following in his Dad's footsteps.
WHAT??? We have just moved our bed to under the window after we got our new flooring and I guess Daphne wanted to know what we were doing in the green space. So she walked out the window and was watching us from the roof.
