Little Muffin showed up again today after school.
So in she marches, school bag in hand, all excited to be here.
I had cooked but Daddy had already fed her.
She was not thrilled that we had to do homework first before we could play,
No homework, no playing.
So we did lots of spelling words,
So she placed her book, back in the bag,
She tells me to close my eyes!
She pulls out an Artists sketch book, she would like to teach me how to draw.
Any time she has ever visited, we are drawing, painting, doing crafts, or watering my flowers.
She was very good and quite thorough with her instructions..
Inside I was smiling, I think she got that love of art from me..
So back to the drawing,,,,
we were going to draw me,
and she wanted me to draw the same as her.
She says the body will have to be fat,
I thought to myself,
they know not what they say,
and then she proceeds to draw too thin lines for a body!
Not my idea of fat, but She is suddenly back in my good books!
Anyway we had lots of fun.
She had all kinds of things to tell me,
Her Mom had just remarried,
and she was a flower girl.
The next thing we were drawing brides dressings.
She told me we needed to draw a handsome man,
so I drew a bald guy,
and she laughed and laughed and then tried to tell me what handsome was.
I tried to explain that everybody has a different idea of what handsome is.
Finally I just gave in and drew hair on his head,
I was just bugging her anyway
She told me we had to put ears on the side,
so I put ears on the side of the arms,
How so very silly I was.
When her Dad came to pick her up she ran to the back porch,
and she told him she did not want to go home yet.
Anyhow all is good because she gets to come tomorrow.
I had not seen much of her in the last 3 months,
so I am really enjoying this.
When she left she told me I need to sharpen all the pencils.
I guess we are drawing again.
I am a huge believer in playing with the children.
My sister says that is why they all love me so much!
I know it is because really I am still just a big kid at heart..
With my Cataplexy I am limited to how much time I spend with her,
Sometimes when my head drops forward,
she puts her little hand on my cheek and says,
Hey silly, wake up!
Someday I will tell her about it,
I will just let her think I fall asleep for now.
I embraced the love of a child,
and turned a bad mood around,
and laughed, and played.
I think the shadow I was running from yesterday.
May have gone on vacation, or at least a detour.
Works for me.
Embrace your Day!
