HIghtailing It for Hugs
All the time I was wondering if son John had returned from the big Turismo Convention in Cancun and if Matilda and Sebastian were with him at his house. By 9AM I couldn't stand it another minute and called.
Yup, the kids were there and yes they were up and yes I could go over.
I was on my side of town but I hightailed it, within reason, to their house. I hadn't seen Matilda and Sebastian in three weeks. I was sorely missing hugs and kisses along with whatever else they wanted to share with me.
Of course I wasn't disappointed. I think they had missed me too because I got TWO hugs and kisses from each. Along with that they wanted to show me all the things their Dad had brought them from the convention. New backpacks along with toys and of course clothes. Matilda got a new Cancun sundress and Sebastian got a shark T-shirt with it's mouth that opened to show a dead fish. He loved it!
Saturday mornings are "discovery time" with their Dad. I didn't want to interrupt that so I dropped them off at Parque Juarez so they can be jungle adventurers.........More hugs and kisses!
Then, on the way home, I stopped at my favorite nursery. The owner was there. I usually only buy a few little plants. He remembered me admiring a petunia basket last time that I didn't buy. So, when I went to pay for the four alyssum I had picked, he brought the basket to me and said, "Feliz dia de Madre". I was so choked up I could only give him a big smile.
What a day! And, it's not even noon yet!
