The Plan


IMG_0955
Keeping up with my Instagram inspired posts lately.  Yup, I'm obsessed with it.
The plan is simple, Diego.  Every Friday, Mama comes to get you at 11am and we go to your speech therapy appointment, as the plan goes: Mama tries everything to keep you awake for the 20 minute car ride.

"Look over there, Diego.  Wow!  What's that?  Hey, can you say Mama? Diego - What does a monkey say..? Oh look, we're here, Can you say Hi Teacher?" etc.

Walking out of the hospital doors after a successful therapy session, Mama straps you in the car and hands you a sippy cup of milk to help you fall asleep in the car.  Halfway home, you fall asleep.  That's the plan.  Simple isn't it?

While sleeping in your car seat, Mama sneaks in some McDonald's because it's her Fast Food Friday - the day she's worked so "diet-arily" hard all week to deserve.  Mama takes you back to Grandpa's and shifts your sleeping body from the car to the house.  You are NOT supposed to wake up because otherwise it will screw up your nap schedule for the rest of the day; so will drinking some of Mama's soda.

You are NOT supposed to wake up.  You are NOT supposed to eat Mama's fries either. 

The plan is great in theory - Shirley (Instagram: @goldendreemz)

Why is it that when you want them to sleep they won't, and when you don't want them to sleep they do!

And I don't really want to share my drink or fries either!
