. ..turned 21 in prison doing life without parole . ..
Yesterday we celebrated Stuey's 4th birthday and it ended with the lyrics, "...Turned 21 in prison doing life without parole...".
The day started with the kids both sick. I should've rescheduled dinner but with me leaving town on Tuesday, I didn't want to have to schedule it for after my return. Bad move on my part.
I'll spare you the details, but the day included Nora biting Stuey's finger, Stuey hitting a friend who was over to celebrate and Stuey spending the last part of his birthday party in time out. It wasn't a pretty afternoon. :( Luckily we managed to get some cake and ice cream in along with a yummy dinner.
After the kids were in bed, Patrick was laughing telling me about the words to a song.....called 'Mamma Tried' by Merle Haggard--the lyrics included, "I turned 21 in prioson doing life without parole...".
Stuey turned 4 in time out!
At least we could get a good laugh out of it while listening to the lyrics of the song last night.
Today included me trying to put a little lego airplane together and Stuey making a house visit apology to the friend he hit.
(The airplane was quite frusturating..I spent close to 2 hours on it today and had it nearly together and Patrick spent an hour on it and got it together--wowsers!! Quite the puzzle! Stuey sat watching us the entire time-very patient and eager to play with the plane. Once it was together, he got about 1/2 hour of play time with it before I accidently dropped it. He took that fairly well).
It was definitely not a great birthday, but we did enjoy dinner with some friends last night, so that was fun.
