claiming our daze and our days on the prairie
note to self #1: tell your early-reading child that if they hammer a battery, battery acid can fly out at you.
this happened a week or so ago…micah was disassembling an old camera and daddy suggested he go do it in the garage. soon micah came in asking for a shower (not typical). i saw gray spots all over him and told him to show me where he got it. i challenged him for mixing ashes with water again…no he didn’t do that. i asked if he found some gray paint…he said, “does gray paint hurt?” by then we were at the scene and i saw the smashed battery. yikes. into the shower and a few little blisters remained. poor guy…forgot to mention that battery reality.
note to self #2: lock the doors.
today i wondered where eliza was…headed outside and found her down the block following sally. this means that she let the dog out, crossed a busy street where cars drive fast, and went for a stroll…all in the moments it took me to rinse breakfast dishes. she’s not feeling well, maybe the illness is getting to her. scary moment.
i am tired.
p.s. happy may day…we were graced with these at our back stoop this morning. we have our suspicions. : )
