Toast

I got a call from the school nurse this morning at 8:00 a.m. – Edison had thrown up 3 times on the bus (poor Mrs. Shufelt – the bus driver – she deserves a BIG Christmas gift from our family!!!  This is the second time she’s had the pleasure of Edison’s breakfast on her bus).  I woke Claudia up (so sad b/c we had another long night last night and she was sleeping soooo peacefully finally) — we went to pick him up and he looked like a mini 70’s James Dean…the nurse had given him a plastic/vinyl “leather” jacket to wear (b/c his was bagged up and ready for some TIDE ) from the lost and found.  Got home and I was taking Claudia’s coat off when she looked at me a little funny and then SHE threw up all over me (and my winter coat).  So two coats in the laundry, two kids sleeping, three piano lessons cancelled, one choir rehearsal postponed, and one tired mama….
