My son Riley has a new skill set…hypnotist.
(please note, this is my digital rendition…his original copy was thrown in the trash ((thanks daddy)) and covered in coffee grounds).
Yesterday, he drew me a picture (identical to the one above), and slowly waved it in front of my face saying, “you want me to play wiiiiiiiiii” (spoken in a low, hypnotic tone). Who is teaching my 6 year old these tricks? And since it worked, and he did indeed get to play the wii, I can only assume that he has a real talent. Does his gift extend into other genres? Like weight loss? Because if he can hypnotize me into thinking I don’t need to eat Christmas cookies 24-7, that would be most appreciated.
I met this family back in August, and while discussing locations, found out that grandma and grandpa (who look too young to be grandma and grandpa), live less than 2 miles away, on a nice little lake. I am so jealous of their property…I warned them that if they saw some random kids swimming on their beach, that it was just me and my family, and not to worry! I still haven’t gone through with my trespassing plan…next June, fo-sho.
Stay tuned to the blog tomorrow…I promised some folks I would be putting my Christmas Card on here…it’s not for the faint of heart.
