When we had Buzz’s evaluation for speech therapy last Thursday, the other kids spent the time with Grandma and Grandpa. Obviously, it’s best if Buzz didn’t have any other distractions, and his brother and sister getting into everything would have definitely been a distraction.
I was making waffles for Jedi that morning. Although, to be fair, Eggo made the waffles, I just heated them up. But that takes a lot of work. Like button pushing and everything. I’m worn out just thinking about it.
As I’m slaving over his waffles, I let Jedi in on the day’s plans.
“Grandma and Grandpa are going to be here to spend some time with you later.”, I said cheerily, hoping he might take the news better that way. Not that he had any reason to react harshly, I was just afraid he may have been getting tired of seeing them since they’d been over quite a bit recently.
“Why?”, he wondered.
After I explained where we needed to go with Buzz and why, I asked for Jedi’s take on the situation. More to be polite and continue conversation, since it was going to happen whether he liked it or not. Apparently, however, all my worry was for naught.
“Yeah, that’s good.”, he replied. “I like spending time with Grandma and Grandpa. They’re a lot more fun than you.”
Let’s see if I ever make him waffles again.
