Paradise

Yesterday afternoon, I picked up Creative Guy from the after school program at former church.  I pulled into the parking lot, turned off the car and turned around to clear off the stuff from Creative Guy's seat in the back.  Out of the corner of my eye, I saw this flash of movement and then heard a sound.  I looked up to see Meg dancing outside my car window, saying something like "I run all the way over here to see her and she isn't even looking my way."  Sorry Meg.  Nice to know I have friends who run to meet me.  :)

Creative Guy runs over to meet me too.  That's always good for a heart melting moment.  Yesterday, as we were driving away our conversation went a little like this:

Me:  How was Snack Time?

CG:  Good.  We had a special snack.

Me:  Oh, what was it?

CG:  Chicken nuggets...I was really hoping there would be hot chocolate.

Me:  Yeah, hot chocolate would be pretty special.

CG:  (sighing)  That would be paradise.

Me:  ??  What would be paradise?

CG:  Having hot chocolate.  Watching a movie.  Eating my favorite foods.

Me:  What are your favorite foods?

CG:  Bacon and yogurt.  Oh and little pizza's with small bacon bits.

Me:  So eating bacon, yogurt, little pizza's with small bacon bits, watching movies and drinking hot chocolate would be paradise?

CG:  Yeah...I have two birthday parties to go to this weekend.

Oh how I love this boy.

it was a continuous happy dance, for 2 minutes, until you looked. I'm not a very loud person, but I had to figure out how to dance...loudly. ;)
