Picture us this morning.
I promised her breakfast at Chic Fil A before school.
That meant we had to be out the door 20 minutes earlier.
As we leave I have 3 bags in my hands, my own bag of goodies, my purse and Chloe's backpack oh yea..and her lunch bag so 4 bags for me ZERO bags for Chloe.
We are right on schedule.
The second we stepped out the back door I heard a sound I have heard one millions times....
" Oh Mommy.....look"
I turn to see Chloe stopped dead in her tracks looking down..
That tells a mom with a child like mine one thing, she has seen a bug.
Sure enough, and earth worm....squirming there on the concrete.
Remember now we are in a hurry.
"Mom...I have to get him"
"No Chloe..come on, we have to hurry today"
"But mom....he'll die when the sun comes out"
(well yes he probably will, but I didn't confirm that for her)
"Baby really come on, we have to go if you want breakfast"
"Mom I just have to save him, I want to take care of nature"
( how can I say no to that precious-ness)
"Well get a stick and DON'T TOUCH HIM, because we are going to breakfast...make it snappy"
2 minutes later..which is an eternity when you have to be getting on with it...here she comes.
"What took so long?"
"Well I had to dig a little hole with the stick and get him into the hole"
We chat about the worm and what a great life he will have.....now that his life was spared from baking on the concrete in the sun......all the way to Chic Fil A
We park with our breakfast, turn on XM Kids and get ready to eat.
"Mom...hand me the anti-bac"
"Well....to get him (worm) in the hole I had to pick him up....sorry mom"
After I shoot her that I knew it glance
I hand her our fabulous blueberry scented anti-bac, smile and tell her I'm glad we took the time to save the worm...it was a good thing to do and really it's nothing a little anti-bac can't handle.
We were on time for school.
