Day Off

A few weeks ago, Tito had carpal tunnel surgery and I took a few days off.  One of those days, Kaiden came to visit.   
Since Tito couldn't drive, he thought he would help.  He wasn't too happy when I put him in his car seat.  When I have a day off, we usually go to $tarbucks as a treat.  But since we had Kaiden we decided to go somewhere more kid friendly.
He had a ball in a car his size.  Every time he would get in, he put on his imaginary seat belt! 
Playing peek a boo
We had some errands to run, and he helped Tito drive until

he found this wheelbarrow - then it was every man to himself!

I had help with the dishes.  He kept saying "I cleaning".  He worked on these 2 spoons for 40 minutes.  I told Tito we have 2 of the cleanest spoons in town.

I Found My Gram

I need to set the scene for this post by saying we always sit in the front row at church because Tito can hear better and there is room for his wheelchair.  I was a Lay Reader on Sunday morning.  I was just starting to read the First Lesson when I saw movement out of the corner of my eye.  It didn't take me long to realize that Kaiden was making his way up to me.  He wrapped his arms around my legs and said "I found my Gram".  Suppressing my laughter, I made it through the reading, reached down and picked him up and sat down to sing the Psalm.  I sat him down beside Pastor when I got up for the Second Lesson.  He got up along with me and came over and held onto me until I was finished.  I never made eye contact with his father because I knew I would loose it, but I heard that his expression was priceless.  As one of my friends said "I will remember this day the rest of my life."  What a Mother's Day!

Stacy took this picture (thank you!), but I cannot get it to rotate.  :(
