Now, wherever we go, so goes Wightning. And Scott replays the movie as he races Lightning over the backs of chairs in the dentist office waiting room, his car seat arms, the back of the couch, his bed, his stroller frame, the slide at the park. He is never without Wightning unless we’re at the table (“No cars at the table, here, Mommy,”) or in the bath, (“Wightning will get ruined in the bath, here, Mommy.”). The only time he wakes up in the middle of the night anymore is when it falls out of his hand. I’ve spent many a 3AM pulling the fallen car out from behind Scott’s bed or digging it out from under his pillow.
In the hallway outside of the kids’ rooms, there hangs a calendar.
I bought it in a teachers’ supply section of an office store. It was designed to hang on a bulletin board so that you could use staples or thumbtacks to hang it up.
This hangs on the hall wall. We use tape. I tried to use that sticky gum stuff so that it wouldn’t rip the base or the numbers, but Johnathan ate it.
I improvised. I had some table water cookies and thought that they would make a good crust. I worried that they would get soggy, but they didn’t at all. They were perfect. I made the sauce quickly, using ketchup and spices. Twenty minutes after Scott voiced the desire for pizza for lunch, we were sitting down to enjoy it.Pin It
