Driving to dance, 6 o'clock last night, I'm tired, cranky, have been in the car for what seems like ever. And my 5 year old see's Christmas Lights on. Not a big deal, they are pretty. But then like a tornado she hits me..
Mommy, this year I want to have lots and lots of christmas lights on the front and the back of the house. I want all the twinkly lights. Lots of them.
I still think this is pretty innocent, so I say, why honey? (like most parents would) and then I get the bombshell. I was just about to turn onto the highway too, so just imagine that..
Well mommy, because that way Grandpa and Nonno can see our house from heaven. Huge gulping sobs come out of me. I'm trying to concentrate on driving, blinking tears away like mad, etc etc. And then I think, man you are one smart cookie, kiddo. Lets make this year the most twinkly, brightest christmas light display of our lives so far.
So if you are in Cranston in December, look for our house, you'll be able to see it from heaven.
