yesterday, despite the headache, i took leyton to the pavilion to play. we had fun!! : )
i LOVE the reflection on this one! : )
i can see shades of him at 14, driving a car...
this expression!! drowning in adorableness!
we stopped at sonic for a cheeseburger & 1/2 priced drinks. leyton wanted to eat in a stall, so i said "why not?" and we spent a very pleasant 40 minutes or so hanging out there & eating a bite. he hopped in the passenger seat & i read him a spider book & we sang along to the sonic music. : ) he made friends w/ our carhop as well, of course. he was amazed she was on skates!! : )
when i brought leyton back to mom's, we watched We Bought A Zoo... it was good, but it wasn't quite as "family friendly" as i'd thought. oh, there was nothing inherently bad about it - but there was a lot of language! i guess i don't understand peppering a perfectly good script w/ words that we tell our kids not to say, and then advertising the film as a family affair. of course, my idea about acceptable language is probably different from the populace... i was happy that leyton at least recognized that they were words he shouldn't say!
before i left, leyton was being naughty & ended up kicking me in my mouth, and i left not a happy camper. it was an accident, of sorts, but he shouldn't have been doing what he was doing & it wouldn't have happened. of course, two seconds after i left, I felt bad because he's so sensitive & i knew he'd feel bad for hurting me. so called right away from the car & he wasn't going to talk to me (mom was trying to get him to apologize) and so i said okay & was going to hang up & then he wanted to talk. i asked him if it'd been an accident or on purpose & he was crying & said "i don't want to talk about it!" so then i told him i thought it was an accident & that hopefully he'd be in a better mood tomorrow for our trip. i just talked to him really gently for awhile & he came out of his sad shell & he was okay by the time we said goodbye. whew!
oh, also yesterday i watched John Carter. that was a GOOD movie! idk why it didn't do well in theatres, it had all the necessary ingredients!! i highly enjoyed it!
today i'm watching a christmas movie, Beyond Christmas, from the ... well, idk what year. it's in TECHNICOLOR. *laugh* it's a very sweet romance. : ) things were easier back then! *laugh* as far as romance goes. "as soon as i get a teaching job, we can get married." "jimmy! you just proposed to me!" "i did, didn't i? it's all right isn't, it?" *happy movie kiss* *laugh* CUTE!
as i'm watching & typing, there is a STORM raging outside. thunder shaking my house! praying the electricity holds. : ) also praying it won't keep on like this all day - i'm sure mom won't want to be driving to chicago in a storm! botheration. looks like it's all going south, tho, so that's a plus! right now it's kinda like being inside a very loud car wash... heh!
so, that's all for now! *laugh* hope you enjoyed the pictures!! :D
