“I’ve been looking for this kid for a long, long time”

April 6th, 2007

I’ve changed my schedule. Again. Because why stick with a routine, a regular, boring routine, when you can make a new routine that is even more insane and complex than the old one? This new sked involves 1) job-hunting 2) volunteering in my daughter’s class on Mondays 3) going to the acupuncturist as much as I can (health stuff I am not wanting to write about — too personal. And boring. You know.) and 4) watching the entire first and second seasons of “The Office” (I’ve missed a few, here and there) 5) volunteering in my son’s class on Thursdays 6) women’s group on Wednesday a.m.’s (we discuss much and eat much and drink coffee, while the kids shriek from the other room) and 7) going to church every Sunday, not just Easter. Also, I am dealing with repercussions from not “doing” my old sked. I am talking about my girlfriend who I go for coffee with frequently.

Only now it’s less frequently because I Am Insane with New Sked. Her: “You are going for coffee with someone else? Not me? Are you going to our place? You are such a slut.” Me: “Sorry. Next week?”

So Wacky Boy, Who Is Five, was playing at the sand table yesterday, with one of his many best friends forever, and his BFF tells him, “You’re my best friend!” Wacky Boy, in turn, says, “You are my best friend!” (me: heehee. I love five-year-olds!)

Then his BFF turns to me and, grinning, says, “I’m so glad you brought him here. I’ve been looking for this kid for a long, long time.”

A long, looooooong time. And I’m thinking — the c-section, the three months of colic, his love of hitting things with a stick, his refusal to this day to eat much besides cheese pizza and mac ‘n’ cheese — it’s all been worth it. Because his friend was looking for him for a long, long time. I’m glad I could help.

    Kind of funny that job hunting is at the top of the list, but you haven’t left room for a job. Just play at the job hunting and enjoy your time with wacky boy, time goes by quickly.
    Happy Easter!
