Tall Man Lockdown
Tall man lockdown....let me explain. Remember now, if you read the last post, I have in mind being a fragrant aroma of Christ to my children, caught more than taught, right? Hmmm. Take 2. Son goes upstairs to take a bath to remedy source of undisclosed discomfort. Moments later, much later actually, son returns to Mother whose own head was in a towel heading for a bad hair day as sure as I live. Son returns only not alone, this time with my fav Michael W. Smith CD encircled about , one might say, his tall finger....a.k.a. "Tall Man." (See Bob Jones K5 Math.) Hmmm. What to do. I'm thinking, o.k. if it can go on, it can come off. Wrong. Wait, yes, but only in pieces. Did you know you can use PAM spray for a lot of things, but NOT for the removal of CD's from 6 year old boy fingers??!!! It did come off with a good pair of scissors amidst the hysterical fright of the boy fearing his own finger would be removed as well (oh, like I almost did to his ear cutting his hair 2 years ago now). The visual for the uninvolved reader evokes a laugh as it probably will to me tomorrow. Actually, it is hilharious. His final response to me when he looked at his puffy red finger, "Look what you did to me." The fragrance of correction was quickly released in our home. Amidst my sorrow over a hard morning my children threw love and hugs and kisses and more of the same as I stood with awful hair in our kitchen today. All is truly well.
