On Monday night I drove to Jeremy and Mikelle's house to watch the Bears versus Lions game on ESPN. I don't have cable or satellite, so thank you to the other family and friends that also extended an invitation.
It's really a nice deal. I bring the . . . ahem . . . adult libations and they feed me and allow me to watch their TV. Plus I get to take in, for a brief moment, what it's like to have a 5 and a 3-year-old running around the house. Um, wow!
During commercial breaks and injury timeouts I tried to teach the youngest how to draw a star with markers*, but she was more concerned with my ability, or apparent lack thereof, to replicate her artistic renderings of the sun.
*Markers? Yeah, totally should have looked for a safer medium.
Meanwhile, the older daughter was upstairs and soon appeared at halftime with a present for me!
I think I'll take it to school and put the elephant on the wall next to the other artwork I've been given. Thanks, Kylie!
